Speed Hold’em---It is a Game for You


Today is special---the last day of 2008 in which everything should be special. So, let’s go to play a special game---Speed Hold’em!!!!!

Being a poker lover, are you interested in poker variations, aggression, challenges and passion? If so, Speed Hold’em is a game for you---It is a five handed, with a 10 second time clock. It is a poker players’ heaven where they are able to figure pot odds in a very very short time. Speed Hold’em is a perfect game where you can not only play more hands to challenge but also test your poker skills and luck so that you will become smarter.

More importantly, Speed Hold’em is so simple that if you can play Texas Hold’em, you can master it. In Speed Hold’em, players receive two down poker cards (pocket hole cards) as their personal poker hand, after which there is a round of betting. Three board cards (the flop) are turned simultaneously and another round of betting occurs. The next two board cards (turn and river) are turned one at a time, with a round of betting after each poker card.

The aim of the Speed Hold'em is to make the best possible five card hand, using any combination of hole cards and community cards to win the pot. A dealer button is used to indicate where the betting action starts. Except for using two blinds, it is also possible to play with one blind, an ante, or combination of blinds plus an ante. The challenge is of course the time---10 seconds, which means you have 10 seconds to calculate pot odds and to decide whether you want to play the hand or not. This not only adds to the fun but also make poker players bet, where they normally would fold!

Speed Hold’em is extremely stimulative which is really a game for you…
