You must buy-in a minimum amount of chips when sitting down at your

THE GAME OF Texas Hold em Poker
TexasHoldEm uses a disc called a dealer button to indicate where
the cards are to be dealt. Prior to the deal, the two players to the
left of the button place live bets called the small and big blinds.
It is called a blind because players must pay this amount before seeing
their cards. It's called live because it counts as part of any further
bets in the first betting round.
The play begins with two cards dealt facedown to each player. Action
starts with a betting round beginning with the player to the left
of the blind bets and continuing clockwise around the table. Players
may bet, check, raise or fold in turn. The big blind has the privilege
of last action and may check or raise the bet.
Three community cards called "The Flop" are then dealt up
in the center of the table and another betting round takes place beginning
with the player to the left of the dealer button. Another card is
dealt face up (called "The Turn") followed by a round of
The fifth and last card called "The River" is dealt face
up and a final round of betting takes place. Players remaining in
the hand will then show their cards and the winning poker hand will
be awarded the pot. Any combination of pocket cards and community
cards may be used to make the best five-card poker hand.
Up to 10 players plus a dealer are seated around a table.
In front of one of the players is a round disc or button. This disc
determines the order of betting (posting the blinds) and moves to
the left one player at a time, after each hand.
Before the cards are dealt at the beginning of each hand, the two
players directly to the left of the dealer button must post "blinds".
To post a blind is to place a bet before getting cards.
The player to the immediate left of the dealer button posts the "small
blind," equal to half of the minimum bet (Example: $5 for a $10
/ $20 game). The player to the left of the small blind posts the "big
blind," equal to the amount of the minimum bet (Example: $10
for a $10 / $20 game).
Once the blinds have been posted, the first round of cards is dealt.
These consist of two cards face down to each player and are called
the "pocket cards". Each player can see his or her own pocket
Then the first round of betting takes place, beginning with the player
immediately to the left of the big blind and continuing in a clockwise
direction around the table.
Bet amounts are fixed by the table stakes. For example, in a $3 /
$6 table, bets are $3 in the first two rounds and $6 in the last two.
The bet amount can climb a maximum of 3 times in each round of betting.
In other words, there can be one bet and three raises in each round.
THE FLOP CARDS
Next, three cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. These
cards are called the "Flop". All three cards are "community"
cards and can be used by all the players at the table to make up their
best possible hand.
After the flop is dealt, a second round of betting takes place, again
beginning with the player immediately to the left of the dealer button.
All subsequent rounds of betting begin with the player to left of
the dealer button.
THE TURN CARD
Following the flop, a fourth "community" card is dealt face
up in the middle of the table. This card is called the "Turn"
card and can also be used by all players. It is followed by a third
round of betting.
THE RIVER CARD
Finally, a fifth and final "community" card is dealt face
up in the middle of the table. It is called the "River"
card and is followed by a fourth and final round of betting.
Once all betting is complete, players determine the best five-card
hand that they can make. The player with the best five-card poker
hand wins the pot. Should multiple hands tie, the pot is split with
any odd amount going to the player immediately to the left of the
After a hand is completed and the pot taken by the winner, the dealer
button is moved one player to the left and the next hand begins.
