In texas hold’em, the first step is to get the game started, and for this the players put out a particular amount of money. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the frequently used phrase for this play. In the next step, the croupier shuffles the cards and deals 2 cards face down to every player. A normal deck of fifty two playing cards is used in the deal. Then there is the initial round of wagering. This sequence is typically known as a "pre-flop".

After the first wagering sequence, the top card of the deck is tossed aside. This discarded card is referred to as the "burn card", and this is done to guarantee that there is definitely no cheating. The following 3 cards are then flipped face up on the poker table. These cards are ‘the flop’. Now comes a 2nd sequence of betting, after that the croupier burns a further card and turns over 1 more card onto the poker table. Following this, players can employ the 6th card to form a five-card poker hand.

A further sequence of wagering follows, and in a good many styles of games, here is where the bet amount increases. There is a further round of burning a card, and a closing placing of a card face-up on the poker table. This is referred to as the "river". Players can now make use of any of the five cards on the poker table, and/or the 2 cards in their hand, to form a 5card poker hand.

To wrap it up there is a further round of betting. Then, all the players remaining begin to reveal their hands. This is referred to as the "showdown". Beyond a doubt, the player who holds the highest hand wins. When competitors have even hands a splitting of the pot is used.

Hold’em is a simple game to pick up, but to acquire prowess one needs a tonne of practice.
