Basic Play of No Limit Texas Hold'em:
No Limit Texas Hold'em is played with a typical 52 card deck. Regular poker hand rankings apply. During any betting round, any player can go "all in" (bet all the chips they have).
Hole Cards: The game begins with all the players receiving 2 cards face-down. Each player can only see his or her own cards.
Betting Round 1.
The Flop: The dealer lays 3 community cards face up on the center of the table. These are cards that the players can use with their own hand.
Betting Round 2. The Turn: The dealer deals a fourth community card on the table.
Betting Round 3. The River: The dealer puts one final community card on the table.
Betting Round 4.
The Showdown: The players show their hands, and the best hand (which is any 5-card combination of the player's cards and community cards) wins.
Dealer Button: The dealer button is a white disc-shaped object that moves clockwise around the table each hand, designating one player as sitting in the dealer position.
Blinds: Blinds, like antes, are used to force action. The player to the left of the button has to post a "small blind," (a required bet that is smaller than the Ԣig blindԩ. The player to the left of the small blind has to post a "big blind" (a required bet which determines the lowest possible bet for future betting rounds.)
