What is Royal Holdem?

Royal Hold'em is a variant of Texas Hold'em poker. This game is played in a very unusual way as compared to all the other poker variations and Texas Hold'em variations. This game is played with a stripped deck or, a deck with only 20 cards. These 20 cards consist of 5 cards from each suit. These cards are Rank 10 (10), Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K) and Ace (A). This is the reason that this is called Royal Hold'em. This game differs from all the other poker types as in all the other poker types a standard deck of 52 playing cards is used.

How to play Royal Holdem?

The game begins with the dealer dealing 2 cards to each of the players. Just like Texas Hold'em, Royal Hold'em also requires players to post a small and a big blind. The player sitting to the left of the player with the dealer button is supposed to post the small blind and the player sitting next to them is supposed to post the big blind. The big blind is double the amount of the small blind. Both these blinds are mandatory bets and need to be posted before starting the game. After the cards are dealt, the players have the liberty to see their cards and plan their moves. T

he first round of betting ensues after the cards have been dealt. The player sitting to the left of the player who posted the big blind starts the betting round by either raising a bet and contributing to the pot or checking and not contributing anything to the pot. After the first betting round is over, the dealer deals 3 cards for everyone to see. These are common cards for everyone to use when making their hand combinations.

These are called community cards and the unveiling of the first 3 community cards is called the flop. After the flop, the second round of betting ensues. In this round of betting, the players can see the 3 community cards or the flop along with their hole cards or the 2 cards in their hands. In this round, the betting starts by the player sitting to the left of the player with the dealer button i.e. the player who posted the small blind. In this round, players can either raise bets and contribute to the pot, call raised bets by matching the bets that were raised and eventually contributing to the pot or by folding their hand and forfeiting the game and any money that they contributed to the pot. After the second round of betting, a 4th community card is unveiled.

This is called the fourth street or the turn. After the unveiling of the fourth street or the turn, the third round of betting ensues. In this round of betting, players can either raise bets and contribute to the pot, call raised bets by matching the bets that were raised and eventually contributing to the pot or by folding their hand and forfeiting the game and any money that they contributed to the pot.

After the third round of betting, the 5th community card is unveiled. This is the last community card to be unveiled and also goes by the names, The river and the fifth street. after the unveiling of the river or the fifth street, the fourth and the final round of betting takes place. In this round of betting, the players can either raise bets and contribute to the pot, call raised bets by matching the bets that were raised and eventually contributing to the pot or by folding their hand and forfeiting the game and any money that they contributed to the pot. After the last round of betting, the showdown happens.

In this, all the players who have not folded their hand and are still in the game have to show their cards and compare their hand combinations. The player with the best hand combination wins the game.

Hand Combination

This game is won by comparing hand combinations made with the combination of hole cards and community cards. This list of hand combinations is arranged in a hierarchical order starting from the highest and ending with the lowest-

1. Royal Flush

The royal flush is the best hand combination to have in a game of royal hold'em. In this hand combination, all the cards are in a sequence from the rank 10 (10) to Ace (A) and of the same suit. For example, a hand combination consisting of cards of ranks 10 (10), Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K) and Aces (A), all of spades form a royal flush.

2. Four of a kind

The Four of a kind is the second best hand combination to have in a game of royal hold'em. In this hand combination, 4 out of 5 cards in the hand combination are of the same rank. This suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination consisting of cards of ranks Queen (Q), Queen (Q), Queen (Q), Queen (Q) and Rank 10 (10) form a four of a kind.

3. Full House

The full house is the third best hand combination to have in a game of royal hold'em. In this hand combination, there is a combination of a three of a kind and a pair. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination consisting of cards of ranks Queen (Q), Queen (Q), Queen (Q), King (K) and King (K) for a Full House.

4. Straight

The straight is the fourth best hand combination to have in a game of royal hold'em. In this hand combination, all of the 5 cards of the hand combination are in a sequence from the rank 10 (10) to Ace (A). The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination consisting of cards of ranks 10 (10), Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K) and Aces (A) form a straight.

5. Pair

The pair is the worst hand combination to have in a game of royal hold'em. In this hand combination, 2 out of the 5 cards in the hand combination are of the same rank. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination consisting of cards of ranks of ranks 10 (10), Jack (J), King (K), Ace (A) and Ace (A) for a pair.

I had no idea there could be so many brilliant games to choose from. I regularly play Carrom, Hop Pop & have recently learnt to play Poker on GetMega. Playing games is fun, but playing with real stakes is so much more exciting.
