No Talent Texas Hold 'Em
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
No Talent Texas Hold 'Em is a variation of 5 card poker that is gaining popularity around the windswept steppes of the world. As the name implies, the game was originated in Texas. Also, as the name implies, the game involves holding 'em (As opposed to folding 'em, walking away, or running). Also as the name implies, it involves little or no talent.
The PlayersTypically four players play however as many as 23 players can be dealt hands with which to go "All-In" before the "Flop".
The game begins when the first two players on the dealer's left put in their bet, before the cards are dealt. These are called the Blinds, the player on the immediate left puts in 100% of the ante, the big blind, and the next player puts in 50%, the little blind. This process forces at least two players to lose money on a shitty hand. The name refers to the fact that the player would normally have to be blind drunk to play without seeing his cards. Each player is then dealt two cards, these are called the hole cards. The name probably refers to the fact that most players will be going into debt, or in the hole, as a result of the game.

Hold 'em differs from other styles of poker in that a player may bet as each card is played. The dealer then discards three cards, no one is sure why, but these three cards invariably would be the cards that the player needed to win the hand.
Spreading from Texas, the game has gained enormous popularity. Male players wanting to seem macho, and female players wanting to seem like "one of the boys" see it as a bonding activity. The game also offers an excuse to swear, gamble, drink, and smoke cigars; which basically means you'll be gambling away the money for your chemo treatments. The popularity of the game has launched a number of TV shows, most notably Celebrity Poker. This show features No Talent Celebrities who ALSO have no talent at playing cards. The show has spread the fun and excitement of the game to a larger audience, and has guaranteed that the game will last until the next gambling fad. What will that be? Keno? Baccarat? Backgammon? Who knows, but two things are certain, that it will involve idiots who think they're gamblers, and that your wife/girlfriend won't want you to play it.
