Learn How To Play Texas Holdem Poker For NL The Easy Way

Learn How To Play Texas Holdem Poker For NL The Easy Way

Its easy to learn how to play Texas Holdem poker for NL. NL stands for <i>No Limit</i>. No Limit Texas Holdem Poker is one of the most popular forms of poker in the world today. What makes NL poker stand apart from some other types of poker is the fact that at any time you can bet as much as you want up to no limit. Of course you have to have the amount of money you want to bet but that is the only restriction.

<b>Learn How To Play Texas Holdem Poker For NL</b>

Texas Holdem Poker is usually played with 8 players at a table. You can play with less players then this if there aren’t enough playerd. When there are only two players playing this is known as <i>heads up</i>. The table will have a dealer. There will be a dealer button that signifies where the dealer ‘is’. Each hand this moves to the next player around the table. The two players in front of the dealer are the <i>big blind</i> and the <i>small blind</i>. They have to post a certain amount of chips without being able to see their cards (hence ‘blind’).

The game starts and every player will get two cards. These are <i>hole cards</i>, or <i>pocket cards</i>, or <i>down cards</i>. These are your two cards and only you get to use them. A round of betting will occur. At a minimum if you want to play you will have to <i>call</i> the big blind which is the largest amount on the table. If someone <i>raises</i> you will have to call them or <i>reraise</i> them or you can fold. The minimum amount to raise or reraise is the amonut of the big blind. Once everyone has made their move, either called up to the maximum bet for the round or <i>folded</i>, the dealer will deal will pull all the chips into the middle, which is the <i>pot</i>.

<b>The Flop, Turn and River</b>

The dealer <i>burns</i> a card (this means he throws away the top card of the deck) and deals the <i>flop</i>. The <i>flop</i> consists of <i>three</i> cards placed face up on the table. These are known as <i>community cards</i>. Everyone gets to use these. By the end of the game there will be a total of five community cards. Each player must make the best possible five card hand with their own personal hole cards and the five community cards. After the flop is dealt there is a round of betting starting from the first player left of the dealer. This player can <i>check</i> (bet nothing), <i>raise</i> or <i>fold</i>. If he checks the next player also has the opportunity to check and it continues. If anyone bets you now cannot check and must either call that bet or fold. You can <i>reraise</i> if you like.

After all bets are done and the chips have been pulled into the pot the dealer will <i>burn</i> another card and then deal <i>one</i> more card, the <i>turn</i>, also called <i>fourth street</i>. Again, similar to before, betting starts from the first player left of the dealer. He can check, raise or fold. Like before, as soon as someone raises no one can check anymore. Sometimes every player just checks and the next card is dealt. More often though at least one person will bet and then you have to call that bet, or you can reraise or fold. This continues around until everyone has either folded or called up to the maximum amount bet. The dealer again pulls all the chips into the pot.

The dealer burns his last card and places the final community card on the table. This is called the <i>river</i> or <i>fifth street</i>. Now no more cards will come into play and the players know for sure their best five card hand. One final round of betting will take place in exactly the same format as before. After every player has acted the dealer brings all the chips into the pot and its time for the <i>showdown</i>. The player who initiated the final round of betting has to show his cards first and then everyone else shows their cards. The person with the best overall hand wins.

<b>Texas Holdem Poker Hands</b>

The different Texas Holdem Poker hands are easy to learn. I’ll do them in order from worst to best. Remember S=Spades, C=Clubs, D=Diamonds, H=Hearts.

1) Nothing, aka Highcard.
This is just five plain cards, i.e 7D-5S-4C-3C-2H
2) Pair
Two of you cards are the same number and three plain cards, i.e 2H-6H-10C-Jc-JS
3) Two Pair
Two pairs and one plain card, i.e AC-7S-7D-QC-QH
4) Three Of A Kind
Three of your cards are the same number and two plain cards, i.e JH-5S-8C-8S-8D
5) Straight
Five cards that are consecutive numbers, i.e. 3D-4H-5C-6S-7S.
6) Flush
Five cards that are all the same suit. They can be any numbers, i.e AS-8S-6S-4S-3S
7) Full House
A Three of a kind and the other two cards are a pair, i.e KD-KH-3S-3D-3C
8) Four Of A Kind
Four of your cards are the same number and one plain card, i.e JH-JD-JS-JC-9S
9) Straight Flush
Five consecutive numbered cards <b>and</b> they are all the same suit, i.e 4H-5H-6H-7H-8H
10) Royal Flush
The top five cards <b>and</b> all the same suit, i.e 10H-JH-QH-KH-AH

<b>More Things To Remember</b>

1) At any point in time anyone can go <i>all-in</i> which means they are betting all their chips. This is the essence of No Limit Texas Holdem Poker. If you want to continue playing you must call the amount that was bet.
2) Even though there are seven cards to use in total – the five community cards and your own two hole cards – your best hand is the best five cards of these seven.
3) Don’t bet out of turn. Always wait for the person before you to check, raise or fold before you make your move.

Get a Mentor to Learn How to be an Announcer or Dj

Get a Mentor to Learn How to be an Announcer or Dj

Radio DJs must learn how to perform many duties both on and off air. It’s often their job to announce important information to the public such as the news, time, commercials, traffic and weather. They also must do research and writing for on air chatter. DJs or announcers also often perform interviews for events.

For those interested in learning the career, many students have found that it is better to “learn by doing,” via a mentor in the radio profession that helps them learn by actually doing the job. Mentors can teach the basic skills required in a real job at a radio station. Many times, students also get some on-air experience.

Announcers and radio DJs are often popular with listeners and so they sometimes make public appearances to promote sponsors at special events. DJs who do on-air interviewing, talk to listeners and manage on-air contests as well as comment on the news. Anchors and newscasters usually specialize in the news, weather, or sports, and are very heavily involved in the research and the interview process.

Those who work for a smaller station often have additional off-air responsibilities such as transmitter monitoring, commercial sales, advertising production, program logging, and control board operation, and that’s not including fundraising and promotional events.

Tchnological improvements now allow announcers to assume many tasks previously seen as too difficult since stations have become more mobile. Some regional stations operate out of a single office, while others work overnight with a skinny staff, using pre-recorded programs or feeds from automatic satellites.

Many times, DJs and announcers must get involved in their communities. Just as sports announcers must appear at sporting goods stores to entertain customers, news announcers often show up at local community events.

The field is not limited to broadcasting because many announcers work in film production. People can also get a job as a public address systems announcer to broadcast information at special sporting or performing arts events. Although some announcers get to work in a good environment with soundproof studios, they often are required to work odd hours.

Most jobs require formal training. You can always spend more money through either a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting or training in a private technical college, but many students believe the best way to learn is to get a mentor who is a radio announcer through a mentorship program. The hiring process for a radio announcer includes an evaluation of the person’s on-air skills.

Starting jobs include researchers or production assistants that can advance if they demonstrate the right skill sets, which might take time. People rarely start out with an on-air position unless they go to a smaller station with an open time spot. Beginners are often interview recorders or equipment operators. DJs and radio announcers often start out at smaller stations in local communities and move on to larger stations in bigger cities.

At the network level they often seek college graduates with years of announcing experience, and they must have a great voice, good timing, and more. They need to be computer-savvy and be able to work under on-air pressure, appealing to the audience with a fresh style.

Most radio mentor programs are about ,500 compared to more than double that cost at a University.

Writer Kristin Gabriel works with the Los Angeles radio school known as the Radio Connection, Inc., a fully accredited academic institution certified by the National Private Schools Accreditation Alliance. The school provides educational apprentice programs for the film, radio, television and the music recording industries in more than 100 cities in 50 states. The Radio Connection school provides the entertainment industry with graduate apprentices.
