Colorado Home Poker - What Are The Rules?
Basic home poker game rules at set in place by the provider of the home poker game. These rules should be followed at all times to prevent any discrepancies or accusations of cheating. Colorado home poker games are meant for entertainment purposes - not to cause problems. Follow the standard guidelines below to keep it clean and fair, and most importantly to have a good time!

Breaks: All break times should be clearly stated before the beginning of a Colorado home poker game.

Blinds: All blind levels and increases should be clearly stated before the home poker game and timed correctly.

Bets: Players should state the intention of their bet (Call, Raise, Check, etc.) before placing the bet. Chips should be moved all at once into the center of the table, not into the pot.

Wait your Turn: Most poker games - including Texas Hold'Em, the most common Colorado home poker game - are position based games. A player should never act out of turn.

Fold: When a player folds, the cards should go face-down into the 'muck' pile. Do not reveal your cards to any other player before or during folding. Once a player has folded, it is final.

Raise: When Raising, a player must announce their intention to raise before doing so. The Raise amount must be equal to twice the previous raise, or twice the big blind. The only exception is an All-In wager.

String Bets: String Bets are strictly prohibited. A string bet is when a player moves their chips into the center of the table in two or more moves. All bets must be placed in a single movement. Another type of string bet is when a player says "Call", then pauses before following it with "And I Raise". This is prohibited as some players may re-act to the Call, giving the bettor added incite into the advantage of raising. If this occurs, the Call will stand but the Raise will not be allowed.

Cheating: Absolutely, positively, DO NOT CHEAT in a Colorado home poker game. Not only is it dishonest and ruins the pleasure and integrity of the game, it will get the cheater thrown out faster than he can say "I Fold!"

If you notice another player cheating, your actions should depend upon the circumstance. If you are new this particular Colorado home poker game, keep your mouth shut and get out of the game asap. If you don't know the other players, don't take for granted that the entire group isn't in on it together, targeting you. It can happen. If you know the home poker game and some or all of the people in it, be sure you have undeniable proof before you toss an accusation. A cheater will deny it till his last breath, and with no proof he may still get away with it.

Colorado Home Poker - Texas Hold'Em

Because of this, most every Colorado home poker game will involve Texas Hold'Em, usually in No Limit. If you want to join in a Colorado home poker game, you must know the rules of Texas Hold'Em first.

The object of the game is to create the best 5-card poker hand from the 7 cards available by the end of each hand. A player's first 2 cards are dealt to him face down. These are his Hole Cards. Another 5 cards will be placed face-up in the center of the table as the game progresses. These are called 'Community Cards', because every player will use these 5 cards, combined with his Hole cards, to make the best possible 5-card poker hand.

Small Blind: The small blind is equal to the lower stakes (i.e. a $1/$2 game would equal Small Blind of $1). The player left of the Dealer places this bet before any cards are dealt.

Big Blind: The Big Blind is equal to the higher stakes (i.e. a $1/$2 game would equal Big Blind of $2). The player left of the Small Blind bettor places this bet before any cards are dealt.

Two Hole Cards are dealt to each player. Starting with the player left of the Big Blind, the first round of betting begins (Check, Call, Raise, Fold, etc.)

The first 3 community cards are revealed all at once, known as the Flop. This is followed by another round of betting, this time (and every time after) starting with the Small Blind bettor.

The 4th community card is revealed, called the Turn. Another round of betting...

The 5th and final community card is revealed, followed by a final round of betting.

The best 5-card poker hand wins the pot.
