In texas hold'em, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the players put out a specific sum of money. 'Posting the blinds' is the commonly used expression for this play. In the next step, the dealer shuffles the cards and deals 2 cards face down to each player. A regular deck of fifty two cards is used. After the deal, there is the initial sequence of wagering. This sequence is often referred to as a "pre-flop".

Following the first betting sequence, the first card is tossed aside. This discarded card is referred to as the "burn card", and this is done to make sure that there is definitely no cheating. The next three cards are then flipped face up on the table. These cards are known as 'the flop'. Now comes a 2nd round of betting, after that the dealer throws away a further card and turns over 1 more card onto the table. Following this, competitors can employ the sixth card to create a 5card poker hand.

A further round of betting happens, and in many styles of games, here is where the wager size doubles. There is another round of tossing aside a card, and a closing deal of a card face-up on the poker table. This is called the "river". Bettors can now use any of the 5 cards on the table, or the two cards in their hand, to create a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there's a further sequence of betting. Then, all the players left begin to reveal their hands. This is called the "showdown". Clearly, the bettor who shows the strongest hand wins. When competitors have equal hands a sharing of the pot is used.

Texas hold'em is a basic game to pickup, but to achieve ability it requires a large amount of practice.
