Texas Holdem is the most popular variant of poker card game.Before you start playing poker, you must learn rules of poker.
The goal of Texas Holdem is to have the best five cards (also called a poker hand) at the end of the game, out of the two private and five community cards dealt during the game.
In the beginning, two cards are dealt to each player face down which is followed by a betting round known as the Pre flop betting round. Then five community cards are dealt by the dealer face up in a series of three betting rounds namely the Flop, the Turn & the River with players having the option to check, bet, raise or fold after each deal.
There are four betting rounds in a Texas Holdem Poker game namely Pre Flop, Flop, Turn & River which is followed by the Showdown.
The blinds are forced bets posted by players to the left of the dealer button. The player to the immediate left of the dealer posts a small blind. The player to the left of the small blind posts a big blind (which is around 2 times the small blind).
The position is very important in poker. The players to the left of the dealer are said to be in the early position, the players to the right of the dealer are said to be in the late position while the remaining players are said to be in the mid position. However, the dealer button rotates after each game to give equal opportunity to each player to be in the dealer position.
