I'm a member of a regular Friday night poker game, and just like the majority of friendly games, the dealer moves from participant to player for each hand, and the dealer gets to select his game. My favorite? A game called "Texas Push".

The concept of the game is To make a five card hand (one down card and four up cards, similar to five card stud) at which the maximum hand and the lowest (worst) hand split the pot.

The game begins with each Player getting down one card. The first player then receives an up card. The player has the choice of maintaining the card, or passing it to another player. If the player keeps the card, then the next player receives an up card and the same option. If the player passes the card, the next player then also has the same choice and so forth throughout the players. In each case, there's a charge to passing a card. Once a player retains a card, the other previous players ' are "filled in", they get a card that they have no choice but to keep. This procedure continues, with betting on every finished round, until all of the players have 5 cards in total. Once all of the players have 5 cards (and the gambling is completed), the players are then asked to "declare". A coin in their hand means they're announcing for the "high" hand, and no coin usually means that the "low" hand. The highest and lowest hand for every declaration divide the entire pot.

The strategy of this game Is to use the ability to pass cards to build either a low or high hand. Poker players will know what the top hands would be - normally three of a kind, a straight, or a flush will be a winning hand. For the low hand, the ultimate will be 6, 4, 3, 2, Ace in which they're not in match (a flush or straight can't be utilized as a low hand).

It is a fun, strategic game That is always a hit at our weekly poker game. For instance [ great post to read].
