How to Play Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em

howto_ultimatetexasholdem.jpgUltimate Texas Hold 'Em™ is similar to the regular poker game, however, players compete against the dealer, not the other players.

Playing Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em

Players play against the dealer by making an Ante and Blind wager of equal value. Players can also make the optional Trips wager, which pays on any hand of trips or better regardless of who wins the hand.

Five community cards are placed face downon the layout.

The players and dealer receive two cards each and then make a Play wager of three or four times their Ante wager or check.

The dealer then reveals the "Flop." Players who have not made their Play wager may now do so at two times their Ante or check.

The dealer reveals the "Turn" and the "River." Players who have not yet made a Play wager must now make a Play wager equal to their Ante wager or fold.

 The dealer will reveal his hand and qualifies with a pair or better. If the dealer does not qualify, all Ante wagers are returned to players and all remaining wagers remain in action.

The dealer will then compare his hand to each player’s hand. The best poker hand wins. 

The Blind pays if your winning hand is at least a Straight (see layout for odds). If you beat the dealer with less than a Straight, it pushes.
