At the start of each hand you will be dealt five cards and be given the opportunity to select which of these cards you would like to “hold”. The cards you hold will then be used to make up full ranking poker hands once you draw and the dealer deals again. You can choose to hold on to as many of the initial cards that you are dealt as you’d like, remember ideally you want to select the cards that help you build as many strong hands as possible.
For example, if you have three Kings from the initial five cards you are dealt, you could hold all of the kings and this would open up the possibility of landing a Full House or Four of a Kind once the dealer deals the rest of the cards.
