Let-It-Ride

Learn the rules to Let it Ride, a fun and easy casino table game based on five-card stud poker. In this game, like most casino table games, you are not playing against the other players, only the house.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 Minutes

Here's How:

1. To begin, each player places three equal bets out, for instance, three $4 bets, or $12. Next, three cards are dealt face-down to each player and two face-down to the dealer. Once all the cards have been dealt, you can look at your cards.

2. After looking at your cards, you make your first decision: You can ask for your first bet back, or you can decide to "Let it Ride" and leave it out. Players are not allowed to show their hands to the other players.

3. After all the players have decided on what to do with the first bet, the dealer turns over one of his two cards. All the players will use this card as part of their final 5-card poker hand.

4. Once you've seen the card, you now decide whether to take your second bet back or to "Let it Ride" again. You can only change your second bet at this point, whatever you decided for your first bet sticks -- you can't change that now. You do not get to change your third bet.

5. Again, after all the players have decided on their second bet, the dealer turns his second card face-up. This card will complete every player's 5-card poker hand.

6. If you have a winning hand -- a pair of 10s or better, you win and are paid on the bets you have "let ride." If you let all of them ride, you'd get paid 3 times, if you pulled back your first bet, you'd get paid 2 times, and if you pulled back all but your third bet, you'd only get paid once. If you don't have a winning hand, the dealer takes all of the bets you left on the table.

7. If you have a winning hand, you will be paid according to the following table:

  • Pair of 10's or Better — 1 to 1
  • Two Pair — 2 to 1
  • Three of a Kind — 3 to 1
  • Straight — 4 to 1
  • Flush — 6 to 1
  • Full House — 10 to 1
  • Four of a Kind — 30 to 1
  • Straight Flush — 60 to 1
  • Royal Flush — 250 to 1

Tips:

1. If you have a pair of 10s or better in your 3 cards, you should let all bets ride -- you are already a winner!

2. When you look at your first three cards, also let your first bet ride if you have:

  • Any three cards to a royal flush
  • Three cards to a straight flush that are connected (i.e. 5,6,7) or spread 4 or 5 apart such as 4,5,7 or 7,9,J. When the dealer reveals his first card, let your second bet ride if you have a winning hand or:
  • Any four to a flush.
  • Any four to an outside straight. (i.e. 6,7,8,9)
  • Any four to an inside straight with high cards, i.e. 10,J,K,A

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 Minutes

Here's How:

1. The two players to the left of the dealer put out blind bets. The player directly to the dealer's left puts out the small blind while the player two to the dealer's left puts out the big blind.

2. Every player is dealt two cards, face down. These are called hole or pocket cards.

3. The action, or the first move, falls on the player to the left of the big blind. She can either call the bet, raise it, or fold. Betting continues around the table, clockwise.

4. After the betting is completed, three cards are dealt face up in the center of the table, which is referred to as the board. The first three cards in Texas Hold'em are called the flop. These cards are "community cards" meaning everyone can (and will) use them in combination with their own hole cards to make the best hand.

5. From the flop on, betting begins with the player to the dealer's left, who can check or bet.

6. A fourth card is dealt face up onto the board. This is called fourth street or the turn card.

7. Another round of betting.

8. The final card is dealt face up. This card is also called fifth street or the river.

9. A final round of betting occurs. The remaining players show their cards and the person who can make the best five card hand by combining their pocket cards with the cards on the board wins.

10. And now you know how to play and all the basic Texas Hold'em rules!

Tips:

1. Make sure you learn the best starting hands in Texas Hold'em poker as well as the worst starting hands to play.

2. Once you've got the basics of how to play, make sure to understand your position at the table can help or hurt you.

3. It's always a good idea to follow good poker etiquette.

4. Practice reading the board and which hand beats which.

Through the efforts of the charities, the Seabrook Park Poker Room and the Rockingham Park Poker Room, over $11 million has been raised for charities since these poker rooms opened in 2006. This has become a very important revenue opportunity for the charities as their funding from local, regional and/or state government has declined over the same period of time.
