In holdem, the first step is to get the game started, and for this the competitors put out a particular amount of money. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used term for this play. In the following step, the croupier shuffles the deck of cards and deals two cards face down to all players. A normal deck of fifty two playing cards is used. After the deal, there is the initial sequence of wagering. This round is usually referred to as a "pre-flop".

After the 1st betting round, the top card of the deck is discarded. This thrown away card is referred to as the "burn card", and this is performed to guarantee that there is no treachery. The next three cards are then dealt face up on the table. These cards are ‘the flop’. Now comes a second sequence of betting, after that the dealer tosses out a further card and flips one more card onto the table. Following this, players can utilize the 6th card to create a 5card poker hand.

A further sequence of betting follows, and in a good many styles of games, here is where the bet size doubles. There is a further round of throwing away a card, and a final placing of a card face-up on the table. This is referred to as the "river". Players can now utilize any of the five cards on the table, or the two cards in their hand, to form a five-card poker hand.

To wrap it up there is a further sequence of betting. After that, all the remaining players start to show their hands. This is known as the "showdown". Clearly, the competitor who shows the best hand is the winner. When players have equal hands a sharing of the winnings is used.

Texas hold’em is a simple game to learn, but to achieve ability one needs a large amount of practice.
