A round of Texas Hold’em begins by a standard fifty two card deck being shuffled by the dealer. Play begins with the two players to the left of the dealer. The first player(or blind) places a small bet, the second places a larger bet (the big blind).

Two cards are dealt to each player face down. These cards are known as the hole or pocket cards. The player to the left of the big blind either calls the bet, raises it or folds. The betting then moves around the table, in a clockwise direction.

Three cards are dealt to the centre of the table, or board. The cards are called “community cards” and every player will be able to use these along with their hole cards to create the best hand they can.

The betting then begins with the player to the left of the dealer who can bet or check. The “turn” or fourth card is then dealt face up on the board. Betting then goes around the table again. The fifth street or river card is the final card dealt, also face up.

The last round of betting occurs and the players show their cards and whoever has made the best five card hand by combining the cards on the board with their pocket cards is the winner.
