In hold’em, the initial step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a particular sum of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the frequently used expression for this play. In the following step, the croupier shuffles the cards and gives out two cards face down to each player. A regular deck of 52 playing cards is used. Then there is the first sequence of betting. This round is typically referred to as a "pre-flop".

Following the first wagering sequence, the top card of the deck is tossed aside. This tossed aside card is called the "burn card", and this is done to make sure that there is no treachery. The following three cards are then dealt face up on the poker table. These cards are referred to as ‘the flop’. Now comes a second sequence of betting, after that the croupier burns a further card and deals one more card onto the table. After this, participants can utilize the sixth card to form a 5card poker hand.

Another sequence of wagering happens, and in a good many types of poker, here is where the wager size doubles. There is an additional round of tossing aside a card, and a closing placing of a card face-up on the table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now use any of the 5 cards on the board, or the 2 cards that they are holding, to assemble a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there’s a further sequence of wagering. Then, all the players left start to reveal their hands. This is called the "showdown". Obviously, the bettor who has the highest hand is the winner. When gamblers have tied hands a sharing of the pot is considered.
