How to play Texas Hold'em - Texas hold 'em is one of today's most popular poker games. In Texas Hold'em, try to get the strongest poker hand with 2 cards on hand and 5 open cards that everyone sees on the table. You can combine 1 or 2 of your cards on the hand with whatever cards you want that are on the table, thus creating the best poker hand possible.
Here's how the game goes:
Texas Hold'em consists of 4 rounds where players decide whether to fold or continue to participate in the game. Texas Hold 'em is usually played with a small and a large chip (small blind and big blind) which are compulsory bets by two players. In addition to these, there is sometimes an ante that is a mandatory sum that each player must contribute to the pot at the beginning of each donation. The player sitting after the one who has bet the big blind (big blind) starts the game.
During the course of the game, players can choose to raise if the other players want to join and continue playing in the given game, they must match the raise with the same amount.
The dealer hands out 2 cards each face up. This is the player's "private" card that he or she is allowed to watch. When all cards are dealt, all players must decide whether they want to participate by calling or raising the pot, or fold.
The player sitting to the left of the player who placed the big marker begins. Now it is up to this player to decide whether to call, bet as much as the big marker, raise the pot as much as the marker or fold.
The first round is done when everyone who has invested equally in the pot or folded.
The second round is called the flop. The flop starts with the dealer burning (removing) the top card in the card game, this is done to avoid cheating. After that, 3 cards are placed face up in the middle of the table.
The player to the left of the dealer starts betting. He or she can then call by betting as much as is in the pot, raising or folding. The round ends when everyone has bet the same amount or all but one has folded.
The third round of Texas Hold'em is called the turn. As in the flop, the dealer burns the top card and places a fourth open card next to the other three open cards on the game table. Then a third round of betting takes place in the same way as in the second round.
The fourth and final round of Texas Hold'em is called the river. For the third time, the dealer burns the top card in the game and then places a fifth card on the table. Here, players make their final betting round, which goes the same way as in rounds 2 and 3.
