Texas Holdem Poker
The goal of the game is to win a single poker hand, either by creating a five card poker hand (you can use either 1-2 of your own pocket cards in this hand, or make it from five community cards).
Texas Holdem - for example:
If you want to use both of your pocket cards, the hand is made up of these two cards and three cards common to all players.
If you use one of your pocket cards, the hand will consist of this card and four cards in common with all players.
If the best possible hand consists of five cards common to all players on the table after all phases of play, your hand is that five-card hand.
Note. A player may also win an ongoing hand before the final phase of the game at any earlier stage of the game without revealing his own cards, for example by making a bet which will result in the other players in the hand giving up.
All Texas Holdem cash poker games are open to 2-10 players (plus a virtual dealer), and each table is played with a single deck of 52 cards. In tournament-style Texas Holdem poker games, players can have a minimum of 2 players and a maximum of several thousand.
Betting opportunities and game flow
The first two players to the left of the straight dealer (not the virtual dealer) must place the blind before the cards are dealt. This is to ensure that all winning hands win money. The player to the left of the dealer sign places a small blind (stake), which is usually half the minimum bet (eg 10 cents in a 0.10 / 0.20 Texas Holdem game). The player to the left of the so-called small blind (small blind) puts a big blind (big blind) equal to the minimum bet (eg 20 cents in a 0.10 / 0.20 game).
Texas Holdem pocket cards
These cards are called pocket cards. In the side view, each player can click their cards to view their cards and re-click to place them on the table. In the top view, the cards are always visible.
Betting Round 1
Wagering begins immediately on the player to the left of the big blind and continues clockwise around the table. Players can fold, check, call (check) or raise. Players can only bet or raise the table at a lower bet (Texas Holdem Pot Limit and Texas Holdem No Limit, explained later). The rules for betting are explained in more detail below.
Texas Holdem Flop
Next, three community cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. This phase of the game is also called "flop". The community cards can be used by all players to make the best possible hand. the house share (rake), which is the game organizer's reward for running the games. For more information on the house's share of the various game levels and formats, see the game provider's rake page.
