High Card Flush at Hard Rock Atlantic City

Ultimate Texas Hold'em at Hard Rock Atlantic City

How to Play

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is similar to traditional poker except players do not compete against each other; they play against the dealer hand. The Ante and Blind wagers are made against the dealer hand and there is an optional bonus wager that pays odds if the player’s five card hand is Three of a Kind (Trips) or better and is not against the dealer hand.

The object of the game is to beat the dealer by making the best five card poker hand using a combination of the player’s two cards with any three of the five community cards dealt in the center of the layout. The player or dealer may use 3, 4 or all 5 of the community cards to make a hand.

Before any cards are dealt, players make two equal wagers in the Ante and the Blind circles. Players can also make an optional wager on Trips. Each player and the dealer will then be dealt two cards face down. The player will then have the option to either bet three or four times the Ante in the Play circle, or may ‘Check’ (do nothing). The dealer will then turn over three community cards (the Flop). If players have not already made a Play wager, they can check or bet two times the Ante in the Play circle. The dealer will then turn over the final two community cards (the Turn and River). Any player that has not made a Play wager yet, must either make a Play wager equal to the Ante or Fold, and lose the Ante and Blind wagers.

The dealer then reveals their two card hand and makes the best 5 card hand, with at least a pair to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify, the Ante wager is returned to the player and all other wagers placed by the player will be paid or taken accordingly. When the dealer qualifies, if the player hand outranks the dealer, the Ante and Play wager win even money. The Blind wager is paid if the player has at least a Straight, but if the player beats the dealer with less than a Straight, the Blind wager pushes. If the dealer hand outranks the player, the player’s wagers lose, except the Trips wager, which is paid if the player has Three of a Kind or better, regardless of the outcome of the hand. If the dealer hand ties the player, the wagers are a push, except the Trips wager, if the player qualifies for a payout.
