Games(s), Participation and Prizes

  • As part of its services, Silver Centurion may make available the Games(s) on the Poker India platform.
  • Poker is a game which is played with only one deck. In this game, each player is dealt 2 ‘hole cards’ face down and over several rounds of wagering, 5 more cards are revealed at the center of the table which are called ‘community cards’ and are common to all the players
  • While there could be multiple wagering rounds, the 5 community cards are dealt over multiple streets called flop (first 3 cards are dealt), turn (4th card is dealt) and river (5th card is dealt)
  • There are 3 important positions in a game of Poker called Dealer (player who deals the cards), Small Blind (first active player sitting to the left of the dealer) and Big Blind (second active player sitting to the left of the Dealer). Small Blind and Big Blind positions are critical in every game of Poker as players at these two positions have to contribute to the starting pot by paying the Small Blind and Big Blind
  • After this, each player in a wagering round needs to contribute an equal amount into the pot in that round to move to the next street or for the next set of community cards to open
  • In this context, in each wagering round players can either check i.e. pass the action if no other player has wagered, call i.e. match the current wager amount, raise i.e. raise the current wager amount or fold i.e. forfeit the amount wagered as yet and not be a part of that hand on account of weak cards or some similar strategy
  • Showdown happens at the end of the hand where a winner is determined based on the player who has the strongest combination of a hand of 5 cards out of the total 7 cards dealt to a player
  • Showdown can happen earlier as well if all but one player folds or if all players go all-in i.e. wager their entire table balance

Game Formats

  • The platform will have Cash and practice games of No Limit Texas Hold’em variant.
  • In a No Limit Texas Hold’em variant, players are given 2 unique cards each with 5 common community cards in a game. The player’s objective is to get a hand of the best possible 5 cards out of this total of 7 cards and accordingly formulate a game strategy. Each possible combination of 5 cards has a corresponding rank, the player with the highest ranking combination wins the hand. For players with cards of same rank, pot is equally divided
  • The different combination of cards based on their ranking from strongest to weakest combination is:
    • Royal flush: Straight flush of same suit and mandatorily includes 10, J, Q, K, A of same suit
    • Straight flush: 5 cards of sequential rank from the same suit
    • Four of a kind: four cards of the same rank irrespective of their suit
    • Full house: 3 cards of one rank and 2 cards of another rank irrespective of their suit
    • Flush: All 5 cards of the same suit but different ranks
    • Straight: 5 cards of sequential rank but not all of the same suit
    • Three of a kind: 3 cards of same rank irrespective of the suit
    • Two pairs: two cards of one rank, two more cards of another rank and one card of a third rank
    • One pair: two cards of same rank and three other cards of three different ranks
    • High card: none of the above combinations is possible and hence comparison is done based on the highest ranking card
