Blackjack

The Basics

Blackjack is played with one or more standard 52-card decks, with each denomination assigned a point value. The cards 2 through 10 are worth their face value. Kings, queens, and jacks are each worth 10, and aces may be used as either 1 or 11. The object for the player is to draw cards totaling closer to 21, without going over, than the dealer's cards.

The best total of all is a two-card 21, or a blackjack. 

Playing the Game

Each Player places their bet and is dealt 2 cards.
Once the cards have been dealt, players decide in turn how to play out their hands.

Choices:

  • Hit: If you hit, you take another card or cards in hopes of getting closer to 21. If the player's total exceeds 21 after hitting, the player is said to "bust" and loses the bet. 

  • Stand: If you stand, you elect to draw no more cards in hopes that the current total will beat the dealer.

  • Double down: You may elect to double your original bet and receive only one more card regardless of its denomination. 

  • Split: If your first two cards are of the same denomination, you may elect to make a second bet equal to your first and split the pair, using each card as the first card in a separate hand. 

  • Insurance: If the dealer's faceup card is an ace, you may take "insurance," which essentially is a bet that the dealer has a 10-value card down to complete a blackjack. Insurance, which may be taken for half the original bet, pays 2-1 if the dealer has blackjack. The net effect is that if you win the insurance bet and lose the hand, you come out even.

After all players have finished, the dealer plays according to set rules: The dealer must draw more cards to any total of 16 or less and must stand on any total of 17 or more.

What You Need To Know,

No Matter What Poker Game You are Playing

Poker is usually played with poker chips.

White Chip is the lowest-valued chip, worth whatever the minimum ante or bet is.

At the start of the game, each player "buys in" by purchasing a certain number of chips. All of the players usually buy in for the same amount.

Poker Chip Clipart png

Ante
A Chip that is paid before the deal in order to play EACH hand

 

Betting Options
 

  • Bet (Limits or No Limits are determine before game starts)

  • Check (doing nothing, but staying in the game).

If someone bets your Options are

  • Call (Match the amount put into the pot)

  • Fold (Give up the hand and all the chips they’ve already put in the pot)

  • Raise (Put even more chips into the pot)
    In almost all games played today, there is a limit on the number of raises at each betting interval, and this limit is usually three raises.

Texas Hold'Em 

The dealer deals everyone two cards starting with the player on his left and ending on himself/herself. The player on the dealer’s left is the first player to act and they have a choice to:

  1. Bet 

  2. Check 

If anyone decides to bet then the rest of the players have the option to:

  1. Call 

  2. Fold 

  3. Raise 

This continues until everyone has called or all the chips are in the middle.

Once the first betting round in complete the dealer deals three cards face-up on the board. These are community cards that anyone can use. This is called the flop.

Once again everyone still in the hand gets a chance to bet and consequently raise or fold. Once that betting round is complete he dealer puts a fourth card on the table that anyone can use. This is called the turn.

Again everyone gets the chance to bet/check/raise/fold. The dealer puts a fifth card on the board that anyone can use. This is called the river. For the final time everyone gets a chance to bet/check/raise/fold.

If more than one player is still left in the hand after the final betting hand the cards are exposed and the player with the highest ranked hand wins the pot.

5 Card Draw

Each player is dealt five cards, then a round of betting follows. Then each player may discard up to 3 cards (4 if one of your cards is an ace or wild card, in some circles) and get back (from the deck) as many cards as he/she discarded. Then there is another round of betting, and then hands are revealed (the showdown) and the highest hand wins the pot.

7 Card Stud

Each player is dealt two downcards and one upcard dealt before the first betting round, followed by three more upcards (with a betting round after each card) and one more downcard. After the last downcard is dealt, there is a final round of betting. The best five-card poker hand wins the pot.

ONE-EYED CARDS

The king of diamonds and the jacks of spades and hearts show only one eye, whereas the other face cards all have two eyes. One-eyed jacks are sometimes designated as wild cards, but the king of diamonds is rarely selected to be wild.

5 Card Stud 
Players are dealt 1 card down and one card up before the intial betting round. Play continues dealing cards face up until a total of five cards have been dealt betting after every card dealt. There is one final betting round after this last face up card has been dealt.

LOW HOLE CARD

In Stud Poker, each player's lowest "hole" card (that is, the lowest card that is dealt face down and not seen by the other players) is wild. (Keep inmind the last card is dealt face down and may change your Wild Card)

 

In Draw Poker, the wild card would be the lowest card in a player's hand. When such a card is designated, it means that every card of that rank in that player's hand is wild, but the fact that a certain card is wild in one player's hand does not make that same rank of card wild in other players' hands.

Wild Cards

A card that can have any value, suit, color, or other property in a game at the discretion of the player holding it.
In poker  Jokers and/or Deuces are the most common. However usually it is dealers choice and they can pick whichever card they'd like.

Jack Or Better To Open
Each Player is dealt the 5 cards, however no one can  Open "Bet" unless they have a pair of Jacks or a hand that is better (Pair of Q's, K's, A's, 3 of a kind. etc) If no one has it cards are reshuffled, another ante is paid and cards are dealt again. This is repeated until someone can Open. Once someone opens play continues like regular 5 card draw.

Jack Or Better, Trips to Win
Once again you need a pair of Jacks or Better to Open (Bet). However a player can not actually win the game unless he has 3 of a kind or better. This game can last SEVERAL hands. Bets can be made and raised as long as ONE person has the openers for that hand. HOWEVER if in the course of this game, you fold, you forfeit everything you paid thus far and you're out not knowing whether or not any other player has the 3 of a kind or better needed to win. This is a game where Bluffing is common.

Fun 7 Card Stud Wild Card Games
These are all dealt like regular 7 Card Stud. 2 cards down, 4 cards up betting after each and Final Card Down

Baseball

All threes and nines are wild and fours give the player an extra card. The numbers are chosen because of their significance in the American sport - three strikes, three outs, nine innings, four balls for a walk. Because of the extra cards dealt after fours, this game cannot be played by more than six people without the risk of running out of cards.

Low Chicago Splits the Pot

Played like any normal STUD poker hand with or without Wild Cards, HOWEVER, the person with the lowest Spade dealt face down splits the pot with the winner. Yep if you are holding the 2 of spades in your hand you're probably going to raise on every bet no matter how bad the rest of your cards are.

5 and 10's are Wild, HOWEVER you must have both a 5 and a 10 for them to be Wild. Then ALL 5's and 10's in THAT players hand are wild.

Queens and What Follows
Queens are Wild, however if a Queen is dealt to a player face up, the next card dealt face up and all like it is also Wild. Example the 1st player gets a Queen dealt face up and the 2nd player gets a 3. Queens and 3's are wild. HOWEVER if another Queen is dealt face up the Wild Card CHANGES to the card following that Queen. If the last card dealt upwards is a Queen or if there are No Queens dealt face up then only Queens are Wild.

7s

3-7 Players.
If there are more players we usually start a second table and rotate people through out the night.

We use poker chips that we value at a nickel a piece no matter what the color. 
Everyone buys in with $2.00 to start. (40 chips)
No we are not going to retire off the winnings, nor are we going to empty anyone's wallet.
It just keeps the game more interesting if there is money on the line. 

The game can be played without chips, players simply pass when they can't play. 
Or use pennies or candy instead of chips.

  • Everybody Antes 1 chip placed in the pot.

  • Pick a person to deal and have them hand out all 52 cards, face down and one at a time to each person going clockwise. Depending on how many players, the cards may be dealt unevenly, as you continue switch dealers clockwise for the next hand, everyone will have a chance to get the hand with fewer cards.

  • Arrange your hand by suit and numerically. Alternating the colors of the suits will also make your hand easier to find cards

  • The person to the right of the dealer starts by placing a 7 on the table horizontally. If he has no 7's he places a chip into the pot and play goes to the next person clockwise..

  • The next person can either play the 8 of that suit vertically above the 7, a 6 below the 7 or play another 7 or pay if he has no play. Play continues clockwise.

  • Take turns putting down one card at a time either introducing another 7 or playing the next card in relation to the ones already played. If he has no play he pays a chip and play continues to the next person.

  • Aces are Low, so you have the same amount of cards going both directions.

  • If you have a card that plays you must play it. Holding a playable card has a 3 chip penalty.

Variations: 

Let people play more then one card at a time as long as they are consecutive of the same suit.

Higher or Lower

Higher or Lower (My Version)

This is a good game to play with kids.
Shuffle the deck and place all the cards but one face down on the table. Place candy or coins on all the cards. Flip over the one left out, players have to guess whether the 1st face down card is higher or lower then the one showing. If they are right they win what is on top of that card and they get to go again. That card is now the card they guess higher or lower for the next card. When they are wrong that prize goes into a pot and play continues to the next player. Cut the deck to determine who wins the pot.
