Heads Up Hold'Em
Take a single deck of 52 cards, place them in between two players and throw in three bonus features for good measure, and what have you got? Playtech’s Heads-Up Hold’em. Taking the casino classic and giving it a twist, this game is not only perfect for desktop players but a great way to game on the move via the Betfair mobile app.
However, before you can practice your poker face and play like the pros, you’ll need to master the basics. Fortunately, Heads-Up Hold’em has been designed in such a way that players of all skill levels can have some fun. In the first instance, players must place an ante and odds bet (odds bet must be equal to the size of the ante). At this stage, both the dealer and player receive two cards each, while five community cards are dealt in the middle of the table. All cards are face-down, which means players can raise 3X their ante or check to see the first three community cards. This dynamic continues until all the cards are exposed and the best hand wins up to 500X.
For some added action, three sides games are available. The bad beat pot allows players to win up to 500X their odds bet if they lose with a straight. Additionally, the Triple Plus has payouts topping 100X if a player draws three-of-a-kind or better, while the Pocket Bonus has wins worth up to 30X for two starting cards that form a pair, ace + face or pocket aces. Overall, when it comes to tactics, bonuses and big wins, Heads-Up Hold’em is head and shoulders above the competition.
