If there is only one player left at the end of a round then he has to go up against the ghost hand. If he has better cards then he wins the pot. If at least two players are left, there is a showdown and each player has to beat not only the other player’s hands but that of the ghost player as well. Now for those who stayed in and lost, they have to ante up the amount of the pot for the next round. If the ghost hand is beaten the round is over.
