Five Card Draw

Introduction

Draw poker is probably the oldest form of poker. In five card draw, you do not get to see any of your opponents’ cards. The only information you have about their hands is how they bet and how many cards they draw.

The Game

In five card draw, you get five cards face down. You may discard some or all of them and receive a corresponding amount of new cards. The player with the best high hand wins the bitcoin pot.

Blinds

Five card draw is played with blinds. Before the cards are dealt, the first two players to the left of the dealer post a small and a big blind respectively to create a starting bitcoin pot.

The deal

When the blinds have been posted, each player is dealt five cards.

The draw

When the first betting round is finished, each poker player who remains in the hand has the right to draw one to five new cards, or not draw (stand pat). The draw starts with the player to the dealer’s left. 

If more than one player remains in the hand after the second betting round, there is a showdown. The best high hand wins the btc pot.

Game Advice For Texas Holdem Poker
Play good starting hands. 
Do not enter the betting with any two cards! With ten players around the table, someone will have a better starting hand most of the time. When you enter the game with the second best hand, your opponent is a favorite to win the bitcoin pot.

The importance of position 
In Texas Holdem Poker, your position remains the same throughout the entire hand. A player that acts after you will act after you all the way to the river. This is a great disadvantage for you. As a rule, play only very strong hands in early position. On the other hand, when you are in a late position, the advantage is yours to exploit.
