Texas Hold'em Poker Week

Good Morning, ladies! Welcome to our online crop! I hope you've got your "game face" on 'cause we're ready for some poker!

First of all, here's a website which has some basic rules for Texas Hold 'Em. Of course, we're not following the rules completely as we're not placing bets.

Here are our rules:
  • For our game, I will deal 2 cards to each player. No other players will see your two cards.
  • Each day this week (Monday-Friday), we will issue a challenge. Each day we will also show another playing card.
  • If you have done the challenge, you may use the card in your hand. So, there will be a total of seven cards to make your best "hand" of five cards.
  • Please post your challenges on your own blog with a link back to Sisterhood of Scrap. Then post in our comments that you have completed the challenge. If you don't have a blog, you may post in our comments.
  • Challenges must be done by Sunday, November 11th at noon EST to qualify for prize
  • Winner will be announced on Sunday evening

Confused yet? LOL! Don't worry, we'll help figure out your hands when the time comes.


Here are the rankings for hands in poker:
Royal Flush
Straight Flush
Four of a Kind
Full House
Three of a Kind
Two Pair
One Pair

Click on the link above to see more about the rankings.


Okay, I'll deal the cards. If you haven't received an email by this afternoon, let me know!

Good Luck!
