Dragon play Texas Holdem poker with three variations. The Classic, Real Deal and Strong Bad Play Texas Holdem Poker. Each variation has its own unique strategies and rules. With just a little practice you can master all three versions.
The Classic is the basic version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker. Unlike other versions, the Classic is very simple. The player picks four cards at random from a hand of twenty-five cards. Two of the four cards will be a flush and two of the four cards will be straight. After all of the cards are picked, the dealer deals two cards face down on top of the pile and then tells the players to pick the cards.
The first two cards dealt must always be either a straight or a flush. The third card will be either a four of diamonds or a five of spades. When both players have chosen their cards, the dealer reveals the top card. If the card is straight, the player will hit a pair or a flush. If the card is a straight the player will hit a straight or a full house.
In a flush, the player will hit the same number of cards on the third turn. If the fourth turn is a straight, the player can choose to hit a full house or a pair. If the fourth turn is a straight, the player will hit a four of diamonds or a five of spades. If the fifth turn is a straight, the player will hit a six of hearts or a seven of diamonds. The third card will be a five of diamonds or a straight.
In the Real Deal version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker, the cards are dealt differently. The player receives three cards from the deck and immediately picks up the remaining cards from the deck. The dealer has an opportunity to tell each player to pick up the remaining cards after their card is revealed. Then, the dealer reveals the top card, but it is a straight. After the final card is revealed, both players can choose whether to hit a pair or a straight.
If the player is playing the Real Deal version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker, then there are no turn order and no strategy. The Real Deal version is best played with just one hand. It is a good strategy to play more than one hand. The Real Deal version is best played with five or six players. The option to pick up cards with the dealer should be eliminated if five or six players are playing.
The Strong Bad version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker is a different variation. In the Strong Bad Play version, the dealer has the option to tell the players to pick up the cards. The player should always tell the dealer to hit a straight, a flush or a four of diamonds. This is the most exciting variation of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker. The randomization of the dealer cards allows for more control. There is also a role of bluffing in the Strong Bad Play version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker.
One variation of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker that is gaining popularity is the Tony Hawk version. The goal of the Tony Hawk version is to collect money as quickly as possible. The strategy of collecting money quickly is similar to the strategy used in the real deal version of Dragon Play Texas Holdem Poker. The only difference is that the player must draw four cards from the deck of twenty-five cards. Once all of the cards are drawn, the player should choose which of the four cards drawn is a straight and play the corresponding hand of cards.
