Poker Beginners Guide: Mobsters' Masterclass : Common Beginners' Hold'em Problems (3)

In this section you are provided with a series of multiple-choice questions about Holdem. Your task is to identify the correct answer in each case.

Who holds the best hand with the following board cards?

  Board Cards  
   
A   B   C   D  
               

Answer A is correct. No-one has either two hearts to complete a flush or an Ace to complete an Ace-high straight. Player A therefore has the best hand with a King-high straight: K-Q-J-10-9.

You are playing $10/$20 limit Holdem. What is the betting limit on the turn round?

Answer D is correct. In a $10/$20 game the betting for the first two rounds takes place in increments of $10. This then rises to $20 on the turn and river rounds.
