In texas hold’em, the initial step is to get the game started, and for this the players put out a certain total of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used phrase for this play. In the following step, the croupier shuffles the deck of cards and gives out 2 cards face down to each player. A regular deck of 52 cards is used in the deal. Then there is the initial round of wagering. This round is often known as a "pre-flop".

Following the 1st wagering sequence, the top card of the deck is thrown away. This tossed aside card is called the "burn card", and this is done to make sure that there is definitely no corruption. The following three cards are then flipped face up on the table. These cards are known as ‘the flop’. Now comes a second round of betting, after which the croupier throws away a further card and flips 1 more card onto the table. After this, participants can utilize the sixth card to form a five-card poker hand.

An additional round of betting follows, and in a number of types of games, here is where the bet amount doubles. There is a further round of burning a card, and a closing placing of a card face-up on the table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now utilize any of the five cards on the board, and/or the two cards in their pocket, to create a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there is an additional round of betting. Then, all the players remaining start to show their hands. This is called the "showdown". Obviously, the competitor who shows the greatest hand is the winner. When gamblers have tied hands a splitting of the pot is used.

Holdem is a basic game to learn, but to acquire knowledge one needs a lot of studying.
