In Texas Holdem, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a particular amount of money. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used expression for this play. In the next step, the croupier shuffles the cards and deals 2 cards face down to all players. A regular deck of fifty two playing cards is used in the deal. Then there is the first round of betting. This round is normally referred to as a "pre-flop".

After the first wagering sequence, the first card is thrown away. This thrown away card is known as the "burn card", and this is done to guarantee that there is absolutely no corruption. The next three cards are then flipped face up on the table. These cards are ‘the flop’. Now comes a 2nd round of betting, after that the dealer burns a further card and deals 1 more card onto the table. Following this, players can utilize the sixth card to create a five-card poker hand.

A further round of betting happens, and in a number of types of games, here is where the bet amount increases. There is another round of tossing aside a card, and a last placing of a card face-up on the table. This is called the "river". Players can now make use of any of the five cards on the poker table, and/or the 2 cards that they hold, to form a five-card poker hand.

To wrap it up there’s another sequence of wagering. Then, all the remaining players begin to reveal their hands. This is describe as the "showdown". Obviously, the bettor who holds the greatest hand wins. When competitors have tied hands a sharing of the pot is used.

Texas Holdem is a simple game to pickup, but to achieve expertise it requires a large amount of practice.
