May the Flop be with you!

In the words of a successful corporate lawyer, “Don’t play the game, Play the man”. Well, Harvey Spector had definitely decided his plan of attack. Do you have the poker face to deceive everyone and win it all or will your cover be blown to bits and you will go broke?

When playing, every player is dealt two cards face down. When all the betting has finished three shared cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table.

Your best Texas Holdem hands will be made by using your hole cards and the five cards in the middle to make the best possible five card poker hand. The game ends when the players’ turns over their hole cards and the player with the best hand wins, but do you have heavenly luck to win by a landslide?

If not what do you do. Use that brain of yours. Go on betting high amounts. Raise the pot amount. Show some false bravado and keep a good poker face. Its a high risk high reward hand. Force others to fold their packs. Make them doubt the quality of their hand.
