Bet on Texas Holdem

[ English ]

In holdem, the initial step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a certain amount of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used term for this play. In the following step, the croupier shuffles the deck of cards and gives out 2 cards face down to every player. A regular deck of fifty two cards is used. Then there is the first round of betting. This round is often known as a "pre-flop".

Following the first betting sequence, the first card of the deck is tossed aside. This tossed aside card is the "burn card", and this is performed to make sure that there is no cheating. The following three cards are then dealt face up on the table. These cards are known as ‘the flop’. Now follows a second sequence of betting, after that the croupier throws away a further card and deals one more card onto the poker table. After this, participants can use the sixth card to create a 5card poker hand.

An additional sequence of betting happens, and in a good many styles of games, here is where the wager amount doubles. There is an additional round of throwing away a card, and a last placing of a card face-up on the table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now use any of the five cards on the poker table, and/or the 2 cards in their pocket, to create a five-card poker hand.

To wrap it up there is an additional round of betting. Then, all the remaining players begin to reveal their hands. This is called the "showdown". Clearly, the competitor who shows the best hand is the winner. When gamblers have equal hands a splitting of the winnings is considered.

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