How to play Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em
Like every other live poker variant, players go head-to-head with the dealer with the object of forming a five-card hand that ranks higher than the dealer’s hand by using their own two cards and three of the five community cards.
The dealer must have at least a pair to qualify.
- The players gets 2 cards faced up and the dealer gets 2 cards faced down. At this point, the player has the option to Check, Raise 3x or Raise 4x the ante bet. This depends of course on the strength of the two cards he got. If the player got a pair of Kings of r example then it makes sense to raise but if he got a Jack and a 7 unsuited then makes more sense to check.
- The dealer then deals the first 3 community cards (also known as the Flop) and the player has now the option to Check or Raise 2x the ante bet if he hasn’t raised it earlier.
- The live dealer then deals the final 2 cards (Turn and River) and if the player hasn’t raised earlier he gets the option to Raise 1x the ante bet or fold the hand.
- If the player decides not to play the hand at all and fold then he loses his ante and blid bets
- In other words, the player has three opportunities to make one raise with the Play bet. The earlier the player raises, the more they can risk and win. Adding even more interest is the optional Trips bonus bet which is explained below.
Trips Bonus Bet
An optional side bet in which the player’s objective is to make the best five-card poker hand by combining their own two cards and three of the five community cards.
This bet pays on Three of a Kind or better, no matter what hand the dealer achieves.
