Texas Hold Em is big on all the ships right now. If you check your daily paper, I am sure you will find the Texas Hold Em tournament also, enjoy

Welcome to cruise-chat.

From the Princess website: "Texas Hold'Em is not available on all ships (not available on Dawn, Pacific, Royal, and Tahitian).

Hi Ver@, welcome to Cruise-Chat. The ships I have seen it on, used the computer version of the game, so I didn't try it. I haven't really looked for it, but did see it on the Caribbean and Emerald. They have these hand held devices that they give the players at the table. Not sure how the betting works, not sure who you play against, and I was too afraid to try it. They may have also had a couple of tournaments, but again, I really didn't pay attention.

Thanks Dave, sorry folks I "assumed" without checking. Lucky we have Dave and others like him who do some research.

poker
Poker has many variants. The two main forms of Poker are: Stud Poker and Draw Poker.

In Draw poker, all cards are dealt face down to each player. One of the most played and shown in entertainment (TV and Motion Pictures) versions of Draw Poker is Five (5) card Draw Poker. Each player is dealt five (5) cards. There is a betting interval, and those left in the deal, may trade cards in their hand for new cards from the stock (IE: Discard two cards, and receive two new cards from the dealer). There is then a final betting interval before the showdown.

In Stud Poker, some of the cards are dealt face down, and some are exposed for all players to see. One of the most common games of Stud Poker is Seven (7) card Stud Poker. Each player is dealt two cards face down and one card face up. After the first betting interval, each remaining player is dealt another card face up. This continues two more times, with a betting interval before each deal, until all players that remain have two cards face down, and four cards face up. Each player then receives a final card face down, and there is a final betting interval before the showdown.

One of the most popular versions of Poker currently is a version of Stud Poker called Texas Hold'Em. Each player is dealt two cards face down. After a betting interval, three community cards are dealt face up at the same time. There is another betting interval, and another community card is dealt face up; after another betting interval, another community card is dealt face up. There is then another betting interval before the showdown.

Hi Orton39, welcome to Cruise-Chat. Thank you for a great explanation. I was just not sure how the computerized devices worked. I guess everyone sees the same community cards and bets just like a normal game. So, I guess you're just playing against everyone else that has the hand held devices. Must be like a real game, minus the dealer. Hope you'll stay around on our board and post more often. Do you have a cruise planned anytime soon? Best wishes!

Penny, the computer devices replace the dealer. So you are basically playing like you would online at a poker site but with real cash and with the people at the table. The carnival ships don't use hand hand devices, they have a computerized table that has a screen in the middle of the table that the community cards and the pot are displayed on and everyone at the table (up to ten) manage their play (call/bet/fold, money management and entering and leaving the game) via their personal screen. The valor even had a screen on the wall behind the table so people that wanted to watch could see without having to crowd the table.

It is very like normal poker but I like to have a real live dealer. But overall its not bad.
