HEAD UP ON
Most of the concepts we have discussed up to now apply to
situations in which there are more cards to come and in
which there may be more than two players in the pot. However,
if the war that is a poker hand continues from the struggle
for the antes to the final showdown, it eventually reaches
a last round of betting, most often between two players.
And in this last round, after all the cards are out, you
must sometimes apply concepts totally different from those
that were operative in earlier betting rounds. In this page
we will discuss these concepts. They apply to any one-winner
limit games (thus excluding high-low split) when two players
are heads-up on the end.
