Texas Hold'em Poker Rules
Everyone at the table is dealt two cards, hole cards. These cards are dealt face down and can only be seen by the individual
who is playing the specific hand. After everyone has received their hole cards five cards will be dealt onto the table face
up, community cards.
The idea of the game to make a winning hand which consists of five cards by using the hole cards and the community cards. Players
may use only one community card or even non if this is their strongest hand.
The game has four betting rounds, the first one starts after everyone has received their hole cards. The second betting round
starts after three community cards have been dealt face up on the table. After all the bets have been made the third betting round
will commence, a forth community card will be dealt face up and the the third betting round can start. Once agian after all bets
have been placed the fifth and last community card will be dealt face up and the last betting round will start.
The players that are still in the game will now go for the showdown. This is when all bets have been placed and all the
community cards are on the table. The players will in turn show the other players what they have in their hand and the
best hand will be rewarded with the pot. The game is now finished and the whole process will start again.

the two players next to the dealer. This is to start the first betting round so that players can either fold or call after
they have received their hole cards.
