Offshore gambling has exploded over the past decade or so and a big reason why is Texas Hold’em.
Offshore betting is now led by poker players and everyone wants to play Texas Hold’em. Let’s look at the basics of this great game so you know how to play the next time you are in the offshore gambling world.
Offshore gambling on Texas Hold’em begins with four betting rounds. At offshore betting poker sites, the betting starts after each of the players is dealt their two “hole” cards. The first offshore gambling player that must act is the person sitting to the immediate left of the “Big Blind.” (Remember, the “Small Blind” and the “Big Blind” are the two players to the immediate left of the dealer who must ante up before any dealing begins.). Action then continues in a clockwise manner with each individual acting their turn, with the final player acting being the “Big Blind.” When the “Big Blind” completes his action, the first round of betting is concluded.
The second round of betting at these offshore gambling poker sites is know as the “Flop” in which the dealer puts three community cards face up in the center of the table. The round of bets immediately follows starting with the first active player (who did not fold) to the immediate left of the dealer button at the offshore gambling site. Each active offshore betting player who didn’t fold before the “flop” can then choose to “Check”, “bet”, “call a bet”, “raise”, “re-raise” or fold when it is their turn.
At offshore gambling sites after betting on the flop is finished, the dealer places the fourth community card face up in the center of the table. This fourth card is known as “fourth-street” or the “turn.” Again another round of betting follows with all offshore gambling players who have not folded in clockwise fashion. The dealer then places the fifth and final community card in the center of the offshore gambling table. This is known as “fifth-street” or the “river” which is then followed by another round of betting with all offshore gambling players who have not folded, always in clockwise fashion.
The size of the bets at these offshore betting poker sites can vary, depending on if you are playing “Limit” Texas Hold’em or “No-Limit Texas Hold’em.” In “Limit” Hold’em, the amount that you are allowed to bet at offshore gambling sites is limited to a fixed upper limit or betting cap.
