Poker is one of the most popular casino games in Malaysia. Poker differs from many other games of chance by also having a relatively large tactical element in the form of bluffing towards other players.
In Malaysia, the IDNPoker is the only casino that is officially licensed as a casino. This means that only croupier tables can be played here. Here at IDNPoker you can play with different amounts. This amount must be deposited in advance and is also referred to as the buy-in.
In some other casinos it is possible to play an automatic version of poker, which is not against real players. Online there are plenty of opportunities to play real money against other players. These are online casinos with a foreign casino license.
The most popular and most played form of poker is
Texas Hold’em. A player wins when he has the best card combination of all
players, or when all other players leave the round. At the bottom of the page
you will find all card combinations, sorted from least strong to strongest.
In Texas Hold’em, each player receives two face down
cards at the beginning of the round, which are only in front of the player’s
eyes. In addition, two players at the table must place a minimum stake. These
are the so-called big blind and small blind, where the big blind is double that
of the small blind.
After the players have received two cards, they can
leave the round if they believe they have bad cards (fold), go with the big
blind bet (call) or bet extra on top of the big blind (raise). The latter is
unusual, as little can be said yet about the winning opportunities in this
Cards: Flop, Turn and River
After all players have entered or left the round, the
dealer deals three open cards. This is called the flop. After the flop, all
players are allowed to trade again. They can leave the bet at what it is
(check), raise the bet again, or fold. If one player bets, all other players
must go along with this bet or fold.
The dealer then deals a fourth community card, the
turn. Again, all players can bet, go or leave. Finally, the dealer deals the
fifth card, also known as the river. Players can bet one more time at this
point. If all players check (no extra bet) or if everyone goes along with
another player’s bet, then the cards must be dealt face up and the player with
the strongest combination is checked. This is the player who wins the full pot.
Then the next round starts. The game ends when one player has all the chips.
