When In Manila, one of the fastest growing card games is indeed the No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker!
You may have seen the millions of dollars being won on TV with highly televised games and high profile international poker players.
Well, now the poker fever is slowly hitting Manila and the Philippines!
But, I know that we still have so many people out there not quite ready to transition from Pusoy Dos, the local version of Poker, to full on No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker. So, below is a quick tutorial and a list of a few places you can go play Texas Hold Em Poker in Manila.
First think you need to know about No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker in Manila, or anywhere in the world is the ranking of hands. Here’s a really good graphic on that for you to see.
Now that you know that, in the most basic and simple way possible, here’s how you play poker.
Each player gets two cards face down and five more community cards come out face up in the center of the table. Everyone shares these face up community cards. The goal of the game is to get other players to fold their hands or to have the best five card hand with a mixture of your 2 face down cards and the five face up community cards.
The five community cards come out in three waves, first, three cards are shown. This is called the “FLOP” followed by another card, the fourth community card shown, called the “TURN” and lastly the final and fifth community card is show, called the “RIVER.” (because many people have drowned in the RIVER… lol)
There are rounds of betting before any community cards come out and after they call come out. A total of four rounds of betting are done for each hand and again, your goal is to get others to fold with your stronger hands / bluff, or to get the strongest five card hand.
Anyway, No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker is a bit complicated to explain it all on one blog post. Instead, we recommend you play some house games with friends to start off or try some casino online roulette games as well. When ready, and in Manila, one of the most popular and affordable places to play No Limit Texas Hold Em Poker is at Metrowalk in Ortigas, at the Metro Card Club.
Here at the Metrowalk Metro Card Club, you can play for as low as P10 – P20 blinds.
Anyway, what else are you waiting for?
