You’ll find Poker in Red Dead Redemption 2 during one of the main story’s early missions called “Who Is Not Without Sin” in Chapter 2 of the main story.

RDR2 Poker Locations

Here you’ll discover the first of RDR2 Poker Locations, Flatneck Station. In Flatneck Station is Reverend Swanson, a clergyman who’s drunk and gambling at the poker table. He falls down drunk, passes out. You, playing main character Arthur Morgan will replace him at the poker table.

Other RDR2 Poker Locations

  • Flatneck Station
  • Valentine
  • St. Denis
  • Blackwater
  • Tumbleweed

Play No Limits Texas Hold em Poker

The Poker variant you’ll be playing in Red Dead online is Texas Hold em Poker, the most popular poker game in the world.

Playing Poker in RDR2 is the same when you play casino games like poker in online casinos in Malaysia. You also use the same Poker rules and follow the same Poker Hand Rankings.

When you agree to play Poker with Marvin and Luther at the Saloon, you will sit at the table to start the game of Poker.

The bet is 1 Cents or 2 Cents; a small amount now but before, you could buy a lot of stuff with your coins. Remember, you’re playing with Arthur Morgan’s money so you should still win!

If you don’t know how to play poker online, you might get confused because it will show on the screen how much each player is betting, whose turn it is, what your cards are, etc. There are also Poker Terms like Community Cards, Fold, Call, and Check.

How to Beat and Cheat Red Dead Redemption 2 Poker

1. Learn How to Play Poker Online

Learn How to Play Poker, especially:

  • Poker Hand Rankings
  • Poker Rules
  • How to Play Texas Hold’em Poker
  • Poker Terms

If you don’t know how to play Poker, then how can you win and complete the game mission?

You’ll Always Win your First RDR2 Poker Game

They say your first RDR2 Poker Game is rigged so that you will always win. You will always get the same hole cards (first two cards given to you by dealer): a Queen and Ten Clover.

But the next poker games aren’t, so you will have to play to save your life and win money.

  1. One of the players act as the dealer. In Red Dead Redemption 2, Luther will be the Player slash Dealer. This position is called The Button (it changes by rotating clockwise after every hand)
  2. The two players to your left are The Small Blind and the Big Blind (in that order)
  3. Both Small Blind and Big Blind will be forced to bet an agreed amount. They will also put money in the pot (where all the bets are put) before cards are dealt (given to players)
  4. Players get two cards each face down. These are the Hole Cards
  5. First Betting Round starts with the player who’s in the left side of The Big Blind. This player can call(bet the same amount), fold (give up all the money they already bet), or raise (increase their bet)
  6. Betting continues clockwise, each player can fold,call, or raise
  7. After first betting round,3 Community Cards are flipped face up on the table (this is called The Flop)

Community Cards are cards any player can use.

  1. Betting continues clockwise, players can check (pass the action to next player), bet (or raise if there’s already a bet before them), call or fold.
  2. Second Round of Betting is finished, 4th Community Card is flipped face up on the table (this is called The Turn)
  3. Third Round of Betting starts with the first remaining player sitting left of Button/Player acting as Dealer/Arthur
  4. Third Round of Betting is done, 5th Community Card is flipped face up on the table (The River)
  5. Fourth Round of Betting Starts with first remaining player left of the Button/Player acting as Dealer/Arthur. Betting continues clockwise

Ante

Forced Contribution of all Players

Showdown

If player bets and other players fold, then remaining player is given the pot (all the bets made) and isn’t required to show his hole cards (his 2 cards).

If two or more players remain in the final round, a showdown happens.

Showdown: each player plays the best Poker Hand they have using his Two Hole Cards and Five Community Cards.

Player can use both his two hole cards, or just one or none of his cards to create his final five-card hand.

If the player’s best five-card hand is formed using the Five Community Cards, player is “playing the board” and can only split the pot. It’s because all players can use the same five community cards to make the same five-card hand.

But don’t worry if you didn’t understand it the first time. There will be a guide telling you what’s happening in the game and what to do next in Poker.

  1. Wear the Elegant Suit when you’re going to play RDR2 Poker
  2. A new game feature will open. When it’s your turn to deal the cards, you can now slip one card off the bottom of the deck. Then you can hide the card.
  3. You can see the hidden card on the upper left corner of the screen. If it’s your turn, you can switch cards anytime you want depending on what will get the highest Poker hand ranking.
  4. But to cheat using this trick, you have to win a “mini game”.

Mini Game: balance an arrow in the center of a scale. If you fail, you will be caught cheating. This results to a pistol duel with your enemy.

  • Save your hidden card for the showdown. You will win by how high ranking your poker hand is, so you will need strong cards
  • It’s best to get an Ace card since this is the highest ranking card in Poker
