How to Play
This is a table-game version of Texas Hold’em where you play against two virtual opponents, a red bot and a blue bot. The object is to have the best five card hand formed from your two hole cards plus five community cards dealt face up at the centre of the table.
The best hand at the end of the game gets the pot. Tied hands split the pot. 100% of the pot is awarded – there is no rake (i.e. no money is removed from the pot as a casino commission charge).
Place an initial Blind bet and click the DEAL button to start.
You and each bot receive two hole cards. Only you can see your cards. The bots have no knowledge of your hand just like you cannot see either of their hands.
The red bot makes the first betting decision. One bot will always call your Blind bet and raise it 1x, the other bot will either call your Blind bet or fold.
At this point, pre-flop, your choices are:
- FOLD - Abandon your hand and forfeit your Blind bet. This will end the game for you and one of the bots will take the pot.
- CALL - Bet an additional 1x your original Blind bet to call the bot’s raise.
- RAISE - Bet an additional 2x your original Blind bet to call and reraise the bot.
- ALL IN - Bet an additional 8x your original Blind bet.
Note, that RAISE and ALL IN are only available if your balance is large enough to make these bets. You may deposit additional funds and return to the game if you wish to place such a bet.
CALL, RAISE, or ALL IN will allow you stay in the game until the end with no additional required bets. The bot that raised you will match any raise you make. The other bot, if still in the game, will fold.
If you choose ALL IN, the remaining bot will expose its cards and all five community cards will be dealt face up. Best final hand wins. Tied hands split the pot.
If you choose FOLD, you are forfeiting your bet and any chance to win on that hand, but you likewise get to avoid having to invest any more money in an unpromising hand.
If you CALL or RAISE, the first three community cards (the flop) are dealt, face-up. A round of optional betting starts with you.
At this point, before the fourth community card (the turn) is dealt, your choices are:
- CHECK - Make no bet.
- BET - Bet an additional 1x your original Blind bet.
If you CHECK, the bot will do so as well. If you BET, the bot will call, but will not raise.
The fourth community card (the turn) is dealt, face-up. Another round of optional betting starts with you again, just like before.
The fifth and final community card (the river) is dealt, face-up. Unlike standard Texas Hold’em, there is no betting round after the river. The remaining bot reveals its hand. Best final hand wins the pot. Tied hands split the pot.
