Only one blind, before cards are dealt. (eg $2), all players can either call the $2, raise to $6 or fold.

All subsequent rounds, the raise is only double; eg. The bet is $4, first raise to make it $8, second raise to $12. Only 3 raises per round permitted when there are more than 2 players in the game.
At the showdown players use their two hole cards and any three cards from the five community cards in the center of the table to form a five card poker hand.
