Poker Texas Hold'em Game Rule


To start the game, first has to be decided what the blinds/bet will be. The two players on the left side of the dealer will be the blind bets. The player who is closest to the dealer will have the small blind and the other player will be the big blind. Then each player on the table receives two cards face down. These cards are called hole or pocket cards.


  1. Then the bidding will start, the first move will be done by the left player of the big blind. She can choose to call, raise or fold the bet. Call means she’s following; raise is to bet more money, fold is the same as passing. The betting goes in clockwise direction.
  2. When the first round of betting is done, three cards will be dealt face up in the centre of the poker table. These first three cards are called Flop. The cards are community cards, witch means that every player can use the cards in combination with the cards of their own hand.
  3. Then the betting is going again and players can check or bet/raise. Check is to watch the next community card; raise is to increase the betting.
  4. When this bidding round is done a fourth card will be dealt face up next to the three other cards. This card is called the turn card.
  5. Then you can bet again.
  6. The final card is dealt face up. This card is also called the river.
  7. A final round of betting occurs…


The remaining players show their cards and the person who can make the best five card combination in his hand by combining their pocket cards with the cards on the board wins this poker round. You can see the possible combinations and rankings below.
