How to Play Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em
Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em resembles some of the other house-banked hold ‘em variations, but the difference is that you only get to make a single raise during a hand. And the later you make this raise, the lower it has to be.
The game begins with the player making a blind bet and an ante. You are also provided with an optional trips side which allows them to acquire a payout, whether you lose or win your hand. Ultimate Texas Hold 'em is different from other poker-based games in the sense that the ante still remains in play even after the players made a raise and even if the dealer does not open.
You and the dealer both take two cards, you can then place or check a bet. Your play bet has to be either three or four times the size of the ante.
The dealer then deals a three card flop. If you checked before, you now have the option to make a play bet, but it can only be twice the size of the ante.
Then the dealer deals a turn and a river card. If you checked on the previous two betting rounds, you could make a play bet now the same size as your ante. If the dealer has at least a pair, he opens.
Once the game is over you’ll be scored according to how your hand compares to the dealer’s hand, and the bets pay off according to the pay table. You can win as much as 500x your bet if you have a royal flush.
The important thing to remember in this game is that once you’ve made a raise, you can’t raise on subsequent betting rounds. Also, the size of your possible bets goes down if you wait.
