An Amazing Introduction to No Limit Texas Holdem Poker
The game starts with two players to the left of the button post their small blind and big blind that is determined by the stakes. Let`s say, if you put your bet $2/$3, it means the small blind post $2, while the big blind post $3.
The player sitting on the left of big blind starts the betting. There are 3 options. First, the player can “Call the $3 big blind”, second is to “throw”, which means you don`t put any money at all, and the last option is to raise any amount you want as long as it is in the amounts of the big blind (let`s say,$3 big blind, so you raise $6)
After the first round of betting, the dealer “burns” the first card on the deck in order to avoid cheating. Then 3 cards are faced up, called the flop. All of the players can use these cards (also called the community cards) to make their best five card poker hand. Then the next betting starts again with the person to the left of the button.
After the second round is done, the dealer burns another card then turns up one card called “the Turn”. The betting starts again with the closest player to the left of the button.
After the third round of betting, the dealer burns one card and faces up one community card, called “the River”. The betting starts again with the player in the same position and you can use all of your community cards or even none of your cards.
After the betting is finished, the players left in the pot turn their two cards face up and the players with the highest hand get the pot. If it is tie, they split the spot. This is done at what is known as the showdown. It’s the most pumped up moment of the game.
