In hold’em, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the players put out a set sum of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used saying for this play. In the following step, the croupier shuffles the cards and deals two cards face down to all players. A regular deck of fifty two playing cards is used in the deal. Then there is the first sequence of betting. This sequence is typically referred to as a "pre-flop".

After the 1st betting round, the first card is thrown away. This tossed aside card is called the "burn card", and this is performed to make sure that there is absolutely no corruption. The next 3 cards are then flipped face up on the poker table. These cards are ‘the flop’. Now comes a second round of wagering, after that the croupier burns another card and flips one more card onto the table. After this, participants can use the sixth card to create a 5card poker hand.

A further round of wagering follows, and in a good many types of games, here is where the bet amount doubles. There is an additional round of burning a card, and a final deal of a card face-up on the table. This is referred to as the "river". Gamblers can now employ any of the five cards on the board, or the two cards that they hold, to assemble a 5card poker hand.

To wrap it up there’s another round of betting. Then, all the players left begin to reveal their hands. This is describe as the "showdown". Obviously, the bettor who holds the strongest hand wins. When competitors have even hands a splitting of the pot is considered.

Texas hold’em is a very easy game to pickup, but to achieve expertise it requires a fair amount of practice.
