Rules of Texas Hold’em

Texas Hold’em is a very famous format of poker. If you are a beginner and want to play Texas Hold’em poker, then you have to know the rules first. The systematic rules of Texas Hold’em are here as follows:
1. First, the dealer shuffles a full deck of card (52 cards) and deals every player 2 cards each. The rest of the deck is kept unchanged.
2. The player sitting left to the dealer pays small blind and the player left to the small blind pays big blind.
3. The player sitting left to the big blind starts the game. He has three options now: Bet, Fold and Raise. Thus begins the first round that is called as “Pre-flop Round”.
4. If there is more than one player left on the table after the first betting round ends, the dealer puts a card apart faced down which is called as …

A Video Game For The Olympic Games

The 2012 Olympic Games to be held in London now has an official video game released by Sega and it is already being given the thumbs up. It is not without problems, the main one being that most field and track events are difficult to make into a video game that requires skill and excitement. This is not something that can be changed but at least it is not in the realms of button bashing which characterised the last game of the Olympic Games Video four years ago.
In events like swimming and sprinting the game requires a rhythmic use of the button far removed from the mindless jabbing of the controller. In fact if you press too fast you will actually lose the rhythm and slow down.
There are some events that have specific rules and these are the best. In particular many people are enjoying things like archery …

Taking Luck Viral: Internal/External Social Marketing for Businesses Via Games of Chance

Colors flash brightly in a spinning circle. Slowly, the noise of the crowd lessens as the clicking of the wheel grows slower, ending with an “oooh!” as the prize is revealed. Everyone laughs and cheers. “Hey, I just won a free dessert!”
“I just won a t-shirt!”
“I won two days vacation!”
“I won a car!”
“I got a mug!”
“I get a 50{d7041c4e6afa026de24506851a219ca5610a5f906e2b398ac18672c13da8fb92} discount!”
Granted, most people won’t be nearly as excited about the mug as they would about the car, but on some level the initial excitement – before the prize – is the same. As is the thought that, perhaps next time, that mug will stay on the table, and they’ll drive off in the car. They’ll remember it every time they look at that mug.
Games of chance are becomingly increasingly popular as both internal and external marketing avenues for businesses. Part of the attraction is …

The Joy Of Smartphone Games

Knowing that the electronic market brings more and more complex and expensive gaming consoles on a daily basis and that they are not always easy to purchase I want to remind you of the good old mobile phone games and the ease of playing one on one of the most popular handheld devices we know.
The mobile phones always tried to offer an entertaining part to the devices aside from the utility features. The manufacturers started introducing games in the mobile phones menus almost ten years ago, because they knew that the phone should offer a more vast and entertaining experience than a simple communication device. I am absolutely sure that you played Snake at least ten times in your life.
Throughout the years the mobile phone games also became more complex and more fun to play in a parallel growth with the smartphone technology but the advantage of these …
