It is easier to play Texas Holdem then some of the other poker games because everyone is using the same cards with the exception of their hole cards to make the best hand. Seeing the cards lined up on the table allows you a better perspective on the cards then if they were in your hand. In Texas Holdem Poker it also gives other players a better chance to get a read on who is trying to make what hands, by along the players to check out your reaction when a card is flipped over and what cards you keep looking at. This makes bluffing harder, because everyone knows what the card was you may or may not have reacted to. This means when the cards are turned over one at a time you can gauge what they are going for by their expression when the cards are flipped if a person has no reaction to a card you know they are not interested in that card but if someone looks from a newly flipped card then back to his cards then back again that may be a sign he is going to use that card for his hand. Betting in Texas Holdem Poker is fairly simple.

Many people may think that playing the most popular poker game may not be cool and that the true poker fans play draw or Caribbean Stud Poker but they would be wrong in my opinion. The advantage about playing the most popular game is that it is easier to find people who play that game and you will have a bigger selection of players to choose from to find good players. Playing against people who play at your skill level or better makes the game more of a challenge and therefore more exciting.
