PLAN A TEXAS HOLD ‘EM TOURNAMENT FOR A POKER NIGHT TO REMEMBER

Texas Hold`em is a form of Poker (meaning the rank of poker hands applies) played with five Community cards (called “the flop” or “the board”) placed face up in the center of the table, and two cards held in each player’s hand (and hidden from all other players). These cards are often referred to as being “in the pocket” or “pocket” cards.

BASIC RULES & ORDER OF PLAY

  • First each player is dealt 2 cards face down.
  • Then a round of betting commences (Yes this is after only having seen two of the 7 cards what will be in your hand.)
  • This is followed by 3 cards being placed face up in the middle of the table, this is called “the flop”. The flop is the first 3 of 5 community cards that will be placed face up in the middle of the table forming “the board”. The board is community cards meaning that everyone can use them in their hand.
  • Then another round of betting commences.
  • Then a fourth card is placed face up on the table, this card is called the “turn” card.
  • Then another round of betting commences.
  • Then a fifth card is revealed, this is called the “river” card.
  • Then the last round of betting, each player left in the betting now has 7 cards (2 “pocket” cards, and 5 cards on the “board” (3 “flop” 1”turn” and 1 “river”). Each player makes the best 5 card poker hand from the 7 cards available to them

THE POPULARITY OF TEXAS HOLD`EM AND TOURNAMENTS

Texas Hold`em tournements have become much more popular in the last few years with the release of the movie “Rounders”and replay of the World Series of Poker on ESPN2, as well as, the new Celebrity Poker Tournaments on TV. An average poker tournament involving as few as 40 people can take as many as 10 hours from start to finish. A tournament like the “World Series of Poker” takes almost a week.

In the Showbiz form of the “World Series of Poker”, since our events usually run in a 3 hour time span we limit the number of hands that players can play. Rather than allowing every player to keep playing until they run out of chips (which is like going bankrupt in “Monopoly” and can take every bit as long). We speed up the pace by placing a hand and/or time limit on each round. So not only do you have to beat the players, you have to beat the clock as well. The first round might last one hour, with a warning at the last 3 hands, then player have to take into consideration if they can make a move before the round ends. Then the top money scorers make it to the “final table” where they have a limited amount of time and hands to make the big win. This extra pressure causes the kind of excitement that the TV Shows provide and still fits in the normal time frame for a casino event. This way you can either have a Hold`em Tournament for your next function, or you can just add one to your function and still let non-poker players enjoy themselves with the high quality Casino Entertainment you have come to know as a Show Biz Productions trademark.
