POKER RULES

Winning Hands

  1. Royal Flush A straight from a ten to an ace with all five cards of the same suit. In poker all suits are ranked equally.
  2. Straight Flush Any straight with all five cards of the same suit.
  3. Four of a Kind Any four cards of the same rank. If two players share the same Four of a Kind, the bigger fifth card (known as the kicker) decides who wins the pot.
  4. Full House Any three cards of the same rank together with any two cards of the same rank. Our example shows "Aces full of Kings" and it is a bigger full house than "Kings full of Aces."
  5. Flush Any five cards of the same suit (not consecutive). The highest card of the five determines the rank of the flush. Our example shows an Ace-high flush, which is the highest possible.
  6. Straight Any five consecutive cards of different suits. Aces can count as either a high or a low card. Our example shows a five-high straight, which is the lowest possible straight.
  7. Three of a kind Any three cards of the same rank. Our example shows three-of-a-kind Aces, with a King and a Queen as side cards - the best possible three of a kind.
  8. Two Pair Any two cards of the same rank together with another two cards of the same rank. Our example shows the best possible two-pair, Aces and Kings. The highest pair of the two determines the rank of the two-pair.
  9. One Pair Any two cards of the same rank. Our example shows the best possible one-pair hand.
  10. High Card Any hand not in the above-mentioned hands. Our example shows the best possible high-card hand.

POKER TERMINOLOGY

Flop, Turn, and River

There are 5 cards that are put onto the table. The first three cards are referred to as the Flop, the 4th card is referred to as the Turn and the last final card is referred to as the River.

Showdown

When all five cards on the board are turned over, they are compared to the card in the players hand to determine the winner of the pot.

Blinds

There are small blinds and big blinds. What this mean is that left of the dealer puts money on the table equal to half the minimum bet then the player to the left of that person puts up a big blind which is equal to the minimum bet. The role of dealer and blinders rotate around the table.

Opening Bet

After the Big Blind, players ante up and if the players raise the bet, they continue until a player checks which occurs if no one else raises.

Pot

This is the amount of money that is available to win. The more money bet into the pot, the more the winnings are.

From Bethesda Softworks comes HIGH ROLLERS CASINO for the XBox, a game featuring nearly every game available in a real casino, including blackjack, poker, slots, and craps. Players create their own customized gambler, including selecting clothes, accessories, facial expression, and hair and eye colors, before entering the casino and anteing up. While players can wander the fully 3-D casino and play any game they wish, they can also participate in tournaments. The goal of most of the six-player tournaments is to amass $250,000 and win the title of High Roller. Tournaments are done a little differently in HIGH ROLLERS CASINO than in most games, however. Each player gets $1,000 in chips to begin with. After a number of hands (such as 30 in a blackjack tournament), the player with the most chips wins and gets the money. For players who have never set foot inside a casino before, the game offers tutorials for each variation of game available. Gamblers who miss the variety and excitement of Las Vegas can recapture all of their casino memories with HIGH ROLLERS CASINO and not lose their shirts while doing it. Newcomers who want an introduction to casino games or want to practice will likewise enjoy the game.
