Texas Holdem

Texas Holdem is the poker game of choice in live casinos and poker rooms as well as in tournaments like the World Series of Poker.  In recent years, online Texas Holdem has also grown in popularity to become the most popular poker game online.

When you play online Texas Holdem you play by the same rules as when you play in a live poker room or on poker night with your buddies.  Players receive two private cards each and five community cards are dealt over the course of four betting rounds.  The player that remains in the game and can make the best 5-card hand from a combination of private and community cards at the end of the game is the winner.

The main difference between live and online Texas Holdem poker is the strategy. Playing online limits the popular poker strategy of bluffing, as opposing players cannot see each other's faces or body language.  Therefore, playing online will force you to rely on other strategies such as using odds and changing up your betting patterns.

Because the rules of online and offline Texas Holdem are the same, playing a free online game can be a great way to practice.  However, when you play online you can play for real money as well as for fun. When you play real money games you can choose from a variety of games at everything from low limit to high limit and even no limit tables.  When you play for real money you can make a deposit via credit or debit, bank transfer or wire transfer, or a variety of e-wallet services.

The great thing about playing online Texas Holdem poker, as opposed to live games, is that you can play any time of day, whenever the urge strikes.  Play Holdem against other poker enthusiasts from all over the world twenty-four hours a day.  Have fun playing this great game, improving your skills and meeting new friends from around the globe.
