Over the years Bitcoin poker became super-popular among gamblers who are familiar with online casinos. Bitcoin gambling has plenty of undeniable advantages compared to other payment methods.

Bitcoin poker is played the same way as traditional online poker. Basic poker rules are easy to understand. Explaining poker in general, let’s talk about its most popular variation called Texas hold’em. This type of game is easy and fast to play. More than half of beginners start their way in the poker industry from Texas hold’em.
The rules of this poker variation are simple. At the beginning of Texas hold’em a player gets two cards from a dealer. They are lying face down and called the ‘hole cards’. Then several betting rounds proceed, and five more cards are dealt on a table face up. These will be ‘community cards”, which any player can use in any combination. A five-card combination of cards is called the “poker hand”.

Poker game variations
To date, this easy and catchy game has numerous variations, but the most popular of them are such poker types:
- Texas Hold’em
A player receives two down cards at hand (“hole cards”). Then betting starts. Three board cards are turned one by one. Then another round of betting starts. Then two board cards are turned at once. After each of these cards, a round of betting begins. All the board cars belong to the table community. So the player can use any combination of five cards from among hole cards and board cards. He can use the board cards only to form a combination.
- Omaha Hi/Hi-Lo
This variation grows from Texas hold’em poker. A player receives from a dealer four cards in hand. Two of these cards he can use in a combination with three “community cards”. There is a possibility to win before the game ends in case all the players except one fold their cards.
- Five-card draw/stud
This early variation of poker popped-up during the American Civil War. In the beginning, a player gets two cards. One card is face down another one is face-up, then a betting round starts (it is called “street”). After that, the player gets another card face up. The game goes on until the player has four cards face up and one card face down. Then the final bets provide. In the end, the fifth card is shown to define a winner.
