The rules are generally similar to pokies, players will be given two base cards at the beginning of the game, while there will be three male cards on the table, and the fourth and fifth male cards will be turned over as the game progresses, while players can also decide how to bet: raise, call, or fold, and the final cards available to each player are: two base cards, five male cards, and five cards from the seven cards to form the best deck, while The player who has the largest suit is the winner.
– The game of Texas Hold’em begins with a decision on the seating and starting deal points, a shuffle and a cut, and a blind bet by the player who will be dealt two face-down cards to enter the “pre-flop” betting (first round).
– Three community cards are turned over on the table and the player enters the “flop circle” bet (round 2).
– Flip over the 4th common card and bet the turn (3rd round).
– Flip over the 5th common card and go to the final round of river betting.

How to play Texas Hold'em

We have compiled a list of the different key points of Texas Hold’em, including the table layout, etc., so that punters can better understand the specific details of:

Texas Hold'em table configuration

Button / Dealer Seat

A round plastic piece, a little larger than the chips, is used to tell who is dealing (or the dealer is dealing and the player is only acting as dealer). In particular, the first and second players to the left start the game by placing a mandatory bet of “small blind” and “big blind” before they can begin to bet freely, and the deal continues in clockwise order until each player receives two bottom cards, generally in a casino, unlike a game between friends, where the dealer does not participate in the deal (by the casino’s hired dealer).

The Blinds

The blinds, as mentioned above, are mandatory bets before the free bets, and are designed to ensure that there is betting action in every game to add to the entertainment, to avoid the dilemma of no one wanting to bet out of excessive caution, and in tournaments the blinds rise as the number of players remaining decreases, but in cash games they mostly remain the same.
The small blind is half the size of the big blind, with players from left 1 and left 2 betting respectively, which is the general rule, but depends on the possible differences between platforms and the games played.

Texas Hold'em betting four rounds explained

As mentioned before players are able to bet after each public round of the flop.

First round of betting: pre-flop
Second betting round: flop circle

In addition to betting, calling, raising or folding, players have the additional option of “not betting” – which simply means passing to the next player and ending the round when the last player completes his bet or not betting.

Third round of betting: the turn

The turn bets after the flop of the 4th public card, and the process is similar to that of the second flop round, where players have the same four options for betting, ending the round when the final player completes his bet or does not bet.

Final Betting Round: River Circle

The first half of the process is the same as before, with players still having four choices; the second stage is a showdown after the completion of the bet.

No-Bet Fighting Phase: Showdown

The final stage of the tournament will be a battle of cards, where five cards are placed face up in the middle of the table to determine the winner. After the tournament, players will find five cards from their own bottom cards and the public cards and compare them with each player’s five card set.
