    [ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

    In Texas Holdem, the initial step is to get the card game started, and for this the players put out a set amount of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the frequently used term for this play. In the next step, the dealer shuffles the deck of cards and gives out two cards face down to each player. A regular deck of 52 playing cards is used. Then there is the initial sequence of wagering. This round is normally known as a "pre-flop".

    After the first betting sequence, the top card is discarded. This discarded card is known as the "burn card", and this is done to ensure there is no dishonestly. The next 3 cards are then dealt face up on the table. These cards are referred to as ‘the flop’. Now follows a 2nd round of wagering, after that the dealer throws away a further card and flips one more card onto the table. Following this, participants can use the sixth card to form a five-card poker hand.

    An additional round of betting follows, and in a good many styles of poker, here is where the bet amount doubles. There is an additional round of burning a card, and a final placing of a card face-up on the poker table. This is referred to as the "river". Competitors can now use any of the five cards on the poker table, and/or the 2 cards that they are holding, to create a 5card poker hand.

    To wrap it up there’s an additional sequence of wagering. Then, all the players remaining begin to reveal their hands. This is referred to as the "showdown". Obviously, the bettor who has the highest hand is the winner. When gamblers have tied hands a splitting of the pot is considered.

    Holdem is a very easy game to understand, but to achieve expertise it requires a fair amount of practice.
