Poker Rules and Information

Texas Hold'Em

The object of Texas Hold 'Em is to make the best five-card high hand, using any combination from your two dealt down cards and the five face up "community" cards. A designated dealer button is used to determine the betting position, the order of dealing the cards and the order of the blinds. The dealer button rotates clockwise after each hand.

Up to five more rounds are dealt, with a round of betting after each card. If more than one player remains in the end, after all bets are acted upon, a showdown determines who wins the pot. All players still active in the hand share equally in the pot when the best five-card hand is formed by the five community cards.
