A true casino classic and a popular game at Rendezvous Southend, Two Way Texas Hold 'Em is a friendly game, played using a single standard deck of 52 cards.
Two Way Texas Hold ’Em Casino Poker is a game played by up to six/seven seated players with one deck of standard cards.
The players must place three initial bets of equal amounts in the Ante’, Blind and Two Way betting positions prior to the cards being dealt. Two cards are dealt to each player face down and two cards to the Dealer. These are referred to as the ‘Hole cards’.
The Dealer then deals a further five cards, three into the Flop area and two into the River area. These are referred to as the Community Cards. The three cards in the Flop area are immediately turned over and exposed to player. The players then have the option to ‘check’ this means they are not required to place a further wager but will continue in the game or place an additional wager equal to their ‘ante’ wager in the ‘Flop’ box.
When all players have made their decisions whether to fold or continue, the Dealer will turn over the two River cards.
The players then have the option to ‘check’ this means they are not required to place a further wager but will continue in the game or place an additional wager equal to their ‘ante’ wager in the ‘River’ box.
When all the players have made their decisions, the Dealer will turn over their ‘Hole’ cards’, the Dealer will then determine their best poker hand by using one, both or neither of their two hole cards.
If the Dealer and/ or the player(s) use all of the community cards then this is known as ‘Playing the Board’.
The Dealer will then turn over the players cards, starting with the player to their immediate right.
To qualify the Dealer must have a pair or better. If the Dealer does have a pair or better then the Dealer will determine whether or not their hand beats the players hand, if player hand does then their Ante, Blind and if wagered their Flop and/or River bets are paid even money (1-1).
The players Two Way bet is dependent upon whether the Dealer’s hand or the Players hand has a Straight or better.
The wager is paid at the odds of the best hand irrespective of who is holding that hand.If this is the case then the Two Way wager is paid out at the appropriate odds below.
Straight Flush 50-1
Four of a Kind 25-1
Full House 4 -1
Flush 3- 1
Straight 2 -1
If the dealer or the player do not have a Straight or Better then the Two Way bet is lost and surrendered to the House. If the Dealer does not qualify, the players Blind and where wagered the Flop and/or River bets are returned to player.
The Dealer will then ascertain the players best poker hand by using one, both or neither of their two hole cards. If the Dealer’s hand has a higher poker hand than the players then the Ante wager will be lost and surrendered to the House. If the players hand has a higher poker hand than the Dealers’ hand then their Ante bet is paid even money (1-1).
The Two Way bet is treated in exactly the same way as if the Dealer had qualified.
