New Hampshire Hold 'Em
New Hampshire Hold’em is a five-card poker game that lets you bet up to 10 units on a single hand. In New Hampshire Hold’em you compete against a pay-table, not against the dealer, and you win if your hand is a pair of Jacks or better (pairs of 6s-10s push). The top payout is 250-1 for a Royal Flush – and it pays on all bets up to $2000! Getting Started Make an Ante bet to receive your first two cards. The dealer will place three community cards face down in the middle of the layout. Play or Fold? At this point, you may either fold or make the Flop bet with an optional raise and re-raise. The dealer then reveals the first community card. Once you see the first community card, you have a choice: fold or make the Turn bet with an optional raise and re-raise. The dealer then reveals the second community card. Once again, you can fold or stay in the game by making the River bet with an optional raise and re-raise. Note: When you fold, you forfeit all bets left in action. Wining and Losing After the Dealer turns over the final community card, he resolves all wagers left in action. You win if your five-card hand is a pair of Jacks or better (pairs of 7s – 10s push). See pay-table on layout for odds. Bonus Bet is a three card poker hand using the dealers cards only.
The object of roulette is to pick which number the ball in the wheel will land on. Roulette wheels have 38 numbers (00 and 0-36). These numbers are arranged into twelve rows of three numbers, making three columns. 0 and 00 reside at the top of these columns. When at the table the dealer must keep the wheel spinning at all times. The ball is spun in the opposite direction the wheel is spinning, causing it to jump and spin before landing on a number. You may place a wager at any point up until the dealer calls to stop bets and waves their hand over the table. After the ball has stopped the dealer will mark the winning number on the layout, clear any non-winning bets and then payout the winners. You cannot place a new wager until the dealer has removed the marker. You can make a bet on a singular number or a variety of different combination wagers. The different types of wagers and payouts are as follows: Straight Up (35 to 1) – This is a wager on a single number. Simply place your chip(s) on the number of your choice. Split Bet (17 to 1) – A wager on any two numbers. Place your chip(s) so that they straddle the line between two numbers. Line Bet (11 to 1) – A wager on any one line of numbers (1-3,4-6, etc..). You make this bet by placing your chip(s) so that it straddles the outside line of the first number in the row. Corner Bet (8-1) – This wager includes four numbers. This bet is made by placing your chip(s) on the lines where four numbers touch. First Five (6-1) – Includes 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. You can make this wager by placing your chip(s) on the line where 0,00 and 2 meet. Double Line (5-1) – A wager on two neighboring lines (1-6,4-9, etc..). Make this bet by placing your chip on the outside line so that it lays on both lines you wish to bet. Dozen bet (2-1) – You can choose one of three sets of twelve numbers on the board (1-12, 13-24 or 25-36). Simply place your chip(s) in the box marked as such. Column bet (2-1) – As above this is a twelve number bet, this time it is the vertical columns. To make this bet place your chip(s) in the box at the end of the column you wish to play. Red, Black, Odd and Even (1-1) – All of these are “even” money bets. Place your wager in the box provided for the corresponding wager.
Texas Hold ‘Em
When playing Texas HoldEm poker, every player is dealt two cards face down – these are called your 'hole cards'. Then there is a round of betting where you can Check, Bet or Fold. This stage of the game is known as pre-flop and what you should do is dependent on those hole cards, or starting hand.
When all the betting has finished three shared cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. This is called the flop.
After this there is another round of betting, then a fourth shared card – called the turn – is dealt.
There is another round of betting then a final shared card – called the river – and a final round of betting.
Your best Texas Hold ‘Em hands will be made by using your hole cards and the five cards in the middle to make the best possible five card poker hand.
So, for example, if you have 9-9 and the shared cards are 9-9-A-5-2 you have four-of-a-kind. If the shared cards were J-Q-K-7-2 you would have one pair, nines.
Sometimes the best Texas Hold 'Em hand is made by the five shared cards on their own. If they were 10-10-10-10-A and you had 9-9 your hole cards would not play as there is a four-of-a-kind of higher value already showing.
There are two ways a hand can end.
One is when the players in a hand turn over their hole cards and the player with the best hand wins. This is known as a showdown.
The other is that someone will bet enough that everyone else folds. This is how most hands end in Texas Hold'em and that's the magic of the game – you don't always need the best hand to win.

Basic Rules to PLO/8
Pot Limit Omaha/8 is similar to Texas Hold'em in that 2 players have to post forced bets called a "small blind" and a "big blind" there is also a dealer button in play with 4 rounds of betting, pre-flop, flop, turn and river.
Each player is dealt 4 hole cards in Pot Limit Omaha/8. The mechanics are the same as Pot Limit Omaha in that you must use two of your four hole cards in addition to three of the five community cards to create your final five card hand. Where the game differs is that there is the potential for the pot to be split into two halves with half of the pot going to the player with the best high card hand and half of the pot going to the player with the best qualifying low card hand. The best high card hand is simply the best five card poker hand a player can make and follows the same hand rankings as Hold’Em.
For the pot to be split into a low half, first someone must qualify to have a low hand. This means their final hand must have five cards 8 or less without a pair. You must still use two cards from your hand and three from the board. For the purpose of the low hand an Ace is considered low. This means that the best possible low card hand is A2345. The worst low card hand is 45678.
It is possible and often a good strategy to play hands that can win you both the high and (if available) the low portions of the pot. A2345 is a very strong hand because not only is it the best possible low hand but it also serves as a 5-high straight as the high hand. Also consider playing hands that can make a low and also have a suited Ace as you can then make the nut flush.
Note that in order for a low to be possible the community cards must contain at least 3 unpaired cards 8 or less. If there is no low possible then the entire pot is awarded to the best high card hand. Type your paragraph here.
