At Kings Card Club, Texas Hold’em has blinds of $1/$2 and there is no limit to the size bet you can make! Texas hold’em is a poker game played among two to nine players. Players form their best five-card hands with their two down-cards and five community cards in the center of the table.
Each hand starts with two blinds. Prior to the deal of each hand, the player to the left of the dealer button puts in the small blind, an amount equal to half the starting limit. The next player to the left puts in the big blind, an amount equal to the starting limit. The house dealer deals two cards face down to each player.
On the first round, called pre-flop, the betting starts with the player to the left of the big blind and continues clockwise around to the big blind, who acts last on the first round. The betting for the round ends when all bets have been called.
The house dealer then deals three cards to the center of the table. This round is called the flop. These community cards, called the board, become part of each active player’s hand. Betting starts with the first active player to the left of the button.
After flop bets have been called, the house dealer deals one card to the board. This round is called the turn.
After turn bets have been called, the house dealer deals one final card to the board. This round is called the river.
After river bets have been called, if more than one hand remains, there is a showdown and the best of those hands wins the pot. If all players but one have folded, that remaining player wins the pot.
The house dealer moves the dealer button one position clockwise and the next deal begins.
