About Royal Hold ‘em

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

Royal hold ‘em (also hold’em, holdem) is a deviation of limit Texas hold’em played without deuces through nines, leaving only the tens, jacks, queens, kings, and aces.

Royal hold’em can only be played with a maximum of six players because there are only 20 cards in the deck. With 5 community cards, 3 burn cards, and 2 pocket cards per player, a six player table will use all 20 cards in the deck.

The poker strategy for Royal Hold’em varies from other forms of poker since the odds of certain hands are greatly increased.

Hand rankings

Because only five ranks are used, some of the types are not possible in Royal hold’em.

  1. Royal flush: The only flush possible is the royal flush.
  2. 4 of a kind
  3. Full house
  4. Straight
  5. 3 of a kind
  6. Two pair

Given that a five-card hand is made from a choice of seven cards (2 hole cards, 5 community cards), the worst possible hand in Royal hold ‘em is two Tens and two Jacks with a Queen kicker.
