Chapter 1


FROM THE CELEBRITY TOURNAMENTS ON cable TV to the games played at home nationwide, poker can be filled with fun and suspense.

There are many versions of poker being played. Just in a casino, you can encounter:

Poker Machines – Variations include five-card draw, Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, and dozens of others.

Three Card Poker – A popular version played as part of the table games, this version combines the excitement of poker with the speed of table gaming.










confusing at first to learn, but the dealers and players are generally very helpful. It is an exciting game often with lively conversation.

Texas Hold ‘Em – Recently becoming one of the most popular games in the casino, unlike other casino games, this one focuses on the players gambling against one another; not just against the dealer.

Texas Hold ‘Em has similar rules to regular poker or five card draw, but the cards are dealt differently, and there are more opportunities to bet.

There is a diverse atmosphere to the Texas Hold ‘Em tables, and no two will be alike (unlike Blackjack where everyone wants a Blackjack or, at a minimum, for the dealer to bust). Some poker players play as seriously as if it were the World Series of Poker while others pop in out of curiosity and try their luck at a few hands.

CasinoTexasHold‘EmisadifferentballgamethanaSaturday night poker tourney with pizza and drinks. I’m not saying it isn’t fun or that people don’t chat and have a good time, but just like the serious gambler at any table in the casino, there are players who have zero interest in talking and play with a straight poker face the whole time. So, being one of the only games in a casino that pit players against players, and since there can only be one winner per hand, the spirit of competition is alive and well.


This book is designed for the beginner who has always wanted to sit at the oval Texas Hold ‘Em table at a casino and understand the concept of the game but was too timid to try or wasn’t sure how to play poker.
