October 14th, 2013 by Deacon

In hold’em, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a certain 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 all players. A normal deck of fifty two playing cards is used. After the deal, there is the first sequence of wagering. This round is usually referred to as a "pre-flop".

After the 1st wagering sequence, the first card is tossed aside. This tossed aside card is called the "burn card", and this is performed to ensure there is absolutely no cheating. The following three cards are then revealed face up on the poker table. These cards are referred to as ‘the flop’. Now comes a second round of wagering, after that the croupier throws away another card and turns over 1 more card onto the table. After this, participants can employ the 6th card to form a 5card poker hand.

An additional sequence of betting follows, and in a number of styles of games, here is where the wager amount increases. There is a further round of tossing aside a card, and a final deal of a card face-up on the table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now make use of any of the five cards on the board, or the two cards in their hand, to form a 5card poker hand.

To wrap it up there is another round of betting. Then, all the remaining players start to reveal their hands. This is called the "showdown". Clearly, the competitor who has the greatest hand wins. When gamblers have tied hands a splitting of the winnings is considered.

Texas hold’em is a basic game to pickup, but to acquire expertise one needs a fair amount of practice.
