What is Hold’em++?

Adda52 is revolutionizing the online poker world by introducing a never-before poker variant called Hold’em++.

Hold’em ++ is an easy-to-play game. The objective is simple - Create the best five-card hand per the hand ranking rules using the hole cards and community cards in any combination (using both, one, or none of the hole cards). The player with the best hand wins the pot.

The rules and gameplay are almost similar to the traditional Hold’em game but there is an added twist. Instead of having one card each at Turn and River, you will be dealt 2 cards each on both the streets. Albeit the additional 2 cards, the betting format remains the same as Hold’em.

Why you should play Hold'em++?


One of the most exciting features of Hold’em++ is - As you will be dealt 7 community cards as compared to 5 cards, the odds of improving the hand on Turn and River are higher. There are better chances to make the best 5-cards combination as compared to other poker variants.

You can scoop a big pot because of high action till showdown.

How to Play

Each player on the table receives 2 hole cards face-down.

After cards distribution, the first betting round (Pre-Flop) begins clockwise. It starts with the player sitting immediate left to the BB player. Each player has the option to call the big blind, fold, or raise as per the strength of his hole cards on his turn to act.

Once the betting round ends, three community cards are dealt face up on the board (Flop). Another round of betting occurs, starting from the player sitting left to the dealer, where each player can make a bet, check, raise, call, or fold.

After the round, two cards are dealt face-up (Turn), which is followed by another round of betting.

Once the third betting round is completed, Two more cards are flipped (River) and the final round of betting begins.

If all but one player fold their cards anytime during the betting rounds, the hand ends and the last remaining player wins the pot. If two or more players remain in the hand after the final betting round, they reveal their cards (Showdown) and the player with the best 5-card combination wins the pot.

How to create the best 5-card combination?

You have 4 ways to use your community cards to make the best 5 cards combination

Combo 1: Flop + 1st Turn + 1st River

Combo 2: Flop + 2nd  Turn + 2nd  River

Combo 3: Flop + 1st Turn + 2nd  River

Combo 4: Flop + 2nd  Turn + 1st River

For instance, you are dealt A♥,K♥ hole cards and the community cards are – Flop (A♣,2♥,3♣), Turn (9♥,A♦) and River (K♦,10♥). Now your 4 hand combinations are:

Combo 1: Two Pair - A♣,A♥, K♥,K♦, 9♥

Combo 2: Flush - A♥,K♥,10♥,9♥,2♥

Combo 3: Full House - A♣,A♦,A♥,K♥,K♦

Combo 4: Three of a Kind - A♣,A♦,A♥,K♥,10♥

So, Full House is your best 5 card combination in this hand.

Testimonials From Our Players

I am a late entrant into poker world and at 43 years of age, double the age of a lot of players on the tourney circuit. I am a Private Equity Fund Manager and poker is a passion for me!! I have now been playing for over 4 years now - both cash and tournament games. My background in investing made me adapt to the game fast. The approach of studying the game through books, courses (Nick Petrangelo, raiseyouredge) online videos and bit of coaching from Prabhat Mukherjea.. all played a part in preparing me for this. This win is a testimony that poker is not gambling and hard work pays off.

I am extremely happy at winning the ATOC ME. it is apt that my first big tournament win comes on adda52 where I started my poker journey about 4 years back.
