Playing the Board

Fortune Jack Poker

In the game of Texas Hold'em, when a player uses all five community cards and none of his hole cards to make his hand, he is said to be playing the board.

The best possible outcome when playing the board is to split the pot with all the remaining players.


Your Hand
Ace of HeartsSix of Clubs
Six of SpadesEight of Clubs
The Board
Queen of HeartsKing of HeartsJack of ClubsAce of ClubsTen of Diamonds

In the above example, both you and your opponent are said to be playing the board. You both have the same ranking hand - an ace-high straight. The result is a split pot.
