Live Poker at 21.co.uk
Live Poker at 21.co.uk is played with a live dealer that you interact with via video feed and text-based chat. You can type your comments or questions into the chat box; the dealer will respond by speaking to you. The accompanying audio feed also lets you hear all the background noise in the casino. It is quite an experience.
To play, just enter the poker room and meet your dealer. If you do not like the classic view, you can always change to the 3D or Pairs view. You can also change views throughout the game. Each view offers a different perspective of the table and game.
When you are ready to play, standard rules apply. In a game such as Hold 'em, you place your initial wager and then accept the first two cards from the dealer. Based on those cards and the two house cards, you can either check, call, raise, or fold. Folding immediately takes you out of the hand with a loss. Another card will be dealt followed by another round of wagering. There are three turns of the cards in total.
When all is said and done there will be a total of seven cards from which you can form the best five-card hand: the two in your hand, the original two community cards, and the three additional cards turned during wagering. The best five-card hand wins. If there are other players at the table, you will obviously have more competition. Otherwise you will be playing only against the house.

The dealer must have at least a queen high to qualify for the hand. You can also play a couple of side bets, which are 'plus pairs' and 'Six-Card Bet'.
