Category: Beginners Guides.
Pre-flop: In Hold’em poker, everyone is dealt two cards. With two of your own cards, and five community cards dealt to the table, you must make the best possible 5-card poker hand. When forming this hand, you can take advantage of the 0, 1, or 2 personal cards dealt to you. small blind, big blind). The big blind is normally twice the size of the small blind. After this, everyone is dealt two personal cards, ”dark cards” or ”pocket cards”.
After the pocket cards are dealt, there is the first round of betting, and the next player from the big blind is clockwise. The player has three options: fold, call, or raise. The payout is the size of the big blind and the minimum raise is twice the big blind. If someone has bet before your turn, your options are fold, call or raise. Each player takes his turn, and the final decision is made by the player who made the big blind at the beginning of the hand, or the player with the cards to the right of the player who made the last raise.
Flop: Next, the first 3 community cards, called the Flop, are dealt to the table. The flop is again a round of betting that starts with the player to the left of the dealer. Participating players again have three options: if you don’t want to bet, you can move on to the next one by checking; the cards can be folded or you can bet. If a player in front of you has bet, you can call, call or raise. Whenever no one pays your bet or raise, that deal ends and you win the pot for yourself.
Turn: After the flop betting round, a fourth community card called the Turn is dealt to the table. The action continues between the players still in the deal, just like after the flop (each in turn fold / check / bet / call / raise).
River: Finally, the fifth and final community card called the river is dealt to the table. This is followed by the last round of betting. If players check or there is a bet and payout, the players’ pocket cards are opened and it is considered who has the best poker hand.
Showdown: When opening pocket cards, the person who made the last bet / raise is shown first. If the game has only progressed as a check, the next player from the dealer opens his first card. If the hand of the first player to show their cards is better than yours, you can discard your cards without showing them to others.
