What is Em theory: Definition and 15 Discussions

Texas hold 'em (also known as Texas holdem, hold 'em, and holdem) is one of the most popular variants of the card game of poker. Two cards, known as hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards ("the flop"), later an additional single card ("the turn" or "fourth street"), and a final card ("the river" or "fifth street"). Each player seeks the best five card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards; the five community cards and their two hole cards. Players have betting options to check, call, raise, or fold. Rounds of betting take place before the flop is dealt and after each subsequent deal. The player who has the best hand and has not folded by the end of all betting rounds wins all of the money bet for the hand, known as the pot. In certain situations, a "split-pot" or "tie" can occur when two players have hands of equivalent value. This is also called a "chop-pot".
Texas hold 'em is the H game featured in HORSE and in HOSE.

    I EM equations - am I missing something?

    Summary:: There seems to be a mismatch, in the "Maxwell's" equations, between the number of equations and number of variables. I was trying to play around with the equations for Electromagnetism and noticed something unusual. When expanded, there are 8 equations, 6 unknown variables, and 4...

    I Does a conductor E field include a tangential component?

    Background: an ordinary wire supports an external radial electric field proportional to voltage, and an internal axial field equal to current times resistance per unit length. The present question is whether the internal axial field has an external counterpart. The original question that...

    B Maxwell's EM Theory vs Principle of Relativity

    What was the problem between Maxwell's EM theory and the principle of relativity? Why went the theory against the principle? I understand that the EM theory says that Light was a wave and ether is it's medium. On the other hand the principle of relativity says that there is no state of...

    I Can one get E=mc^2 using classical EM theory?

    I'm wondering if one can arrive at E=mc^2 using only the physics of the late 19th century, in the following way: As light waves pass over an electrically charged particle, they push it in the direction of the wave motion, transferring both (kinetic) energy and momentum to the particle. Let's...

    Explaining transverse theory of light using EM theory

    just below eqn 3.25, it is said: At any given time, Ex is constant for all values of x, but of course, this possibility cannot therefore correspond to a traveling wave advancing in the positive x-direction. Why can't Ex be a constant?
