Texas Hold’em poker is called a royal game. People all over the world have played it for decades. Nowadays it is much simpler than even a few dozen years ago because at any time you can simply launch your web browser and start the game. Unfortunately, three years ago Poles lost the opportunity to play poker online due to the gambling law that was introduced at that time. Recently, however, an alternative has appeared on the market, which is Betgames from the bookmaker STS. What is this service about and can we play poker with it? We will also tell ourselves a bit about the rules of this game so that everyone is prepared for their first game.
Betgames STS Poker
Will we play real poker at Betgames ST’s poker? Of course, if it could, it would be perfect service. Due to the gambling law, which we already mentioned, it is unfortunately impossible to play normal poker. Even the Totalizator Sportowy casino, which was supposed to be a salvation for us poker players, did not help. We can’t find regular Texas Hold’Em poker there either and also no games over the Internet with live players. We only have to fight the computer.
So what is poker at STS Betgames like? Here, too, we cannot count on any games with other players, and we cannot even control our cards ourselves. So how are we supposed to play? Playing poker at STS Betgames is simply betting on what is about to happen on the table. The game is loosely based on the rules of poker. The dealer deals the cards to all players, and the task of the person in front of the monitor is to bet on which hand on the table will be the winning one.
Can STS Betgames poker compete with the real one? We will not cheat you by saying that it is better or that it is played the same as regular. We will also not say that it is worse, because frankly, we are dealing with a completely different game. We do not play cards but only use the table situation to place bets. However, it cannot be denied that so far it is the best poker on the Internet and until there are changes in the gambling law, we cannot count on something else. If we want to play STS Betgames poker, we have to learn the basic rules of poker, including the most important – the hierarchy of hands. Only in this way will we know what we are betting. So you can say that poker at STS Betgames is somewhat similar to real poker.
How to win at STS Betgames poker?
Although poker in STS does not require us to keep a straight face and analyze each step of the opponent, there is no way out – you have to know the basic rules. While the scheme of the game has already been described, it is also worth finding out what the individual card layouts look like.
A hand can consist of five cards on the table or one or two cards from the player and the other cards on the table. It is worth remembering that, as the name suggests, all players have access to the community cards, so it is easy to determine what hand other players can have.
Let’s get down to business. What are the cards’ hands? We will look at all of them, in order from weakest to strongest.
A high card is not a hand, but only a term that is used when neither player manages to build a hand. Then the holder of the strongest card wins and takes the entire pot.
Two pair is simply two times two cards of the same rank. In the event of several such hands appearing, the player with the highest pair wins.
A three of a kind is a hand of three cards with the same face value.
A straight is a hand of five cards of different suits arranged in sequence. It can be, for example, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King. If several players have a straight, the one with the highest card wins.
A suit is a combination of five cards of the same suit (the colors of spades, clubs, diamonds, hearts, not red and black). If several players have a suit, the higher card will decide the winner.
Full is a three-pair hand. In case of a “tie”, the tied player with the highest 3 wins.
Four of a kind is a hand of four cards of equal value. It happens very often, but if it does, it guarantees an almost 100% chance of winning.
The strongest poker hand is Poker. It is about arranging five cards of the same suit in sequence. So it is a combination of a straight and a flush. We also distinguish the royal flush, which is composed of cards of the same suit from 10 to ace.
Betgames STS’s legitimate card game service immediately became popular as the number of players who would rather play cards than predict the outcome of football matches, as it turned out, is huge. The implementation of the Betgames product also liked the players very much, which is why it quickly became a hit by this well-known bookmaker.
