The main goal of Texas Hold’em is to win the pot, which is called [POT] in English.
“Pot”: The sum of the chips bet by all players in the game.
In Taiwan, you will often hear players say: I want to win the POT, grab the POT, hit a full POT, etc. The POT is talking about the pot.
There are two ways to win the pot:
At the final showdown, your two hand cards and the five community cards on the table form a larger hand than any other unfolded player.
Use the pressure of betting to force all other players to fold and win the pot.
By the way, I will share the mistakes I often see players make:
“Some players will fold at the end of the show because they feel that their cards are too small to win, so they don’t want to turn over their cards.”
This is a very bad habit.
Because you think your hand is very small, but the opponent’s hand may be smaller than yours. If you fold your cards rashly, you are giving your chips to the opponent for nothing, which is very unwise.
Therefore, it is recommended that no matter how bad your cards are, you can open them at the end to compare cards with the opponent, unless you have seen that the opponent’s card is higher than yours, then it is another matter.
How many people does Texas Hold’em need to play?
A Texas Hold’em table is played with a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 10 people.
If there are only 2 people in a duel, it is called heads-up, which stands for [heads-up], which is a game method that tests the poker skills of both sides.
When the table is full of players, it is called full-ring. In this case, because the pot is more likely to expand, players will actively play more hands, hoping to win the pot.
There is also a game called 6-max that can only be played by a maximum of 6 players. There are not many or not many people. The game progresses quickly and can play their own skills. It is one of the favorite game methods of professional poker players.
