In Texas Holdem, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a certain total of money. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used expression for this play. In the following step, the dealer shuffles the deck of cards and deals out 2 cards face down to all players. A regular deck of fifty two cards is used. After the deal, there is the first round of wagering. This sequence is normally known as a "pre-flop".

After the first betting sequence, the top card of the deck is thrown away. This tossed aside card is called the "burn card", and this is performed to ensure there is definitely no dishonestly. The next three cards are then revealed face up on the poker table. These cards are referred to as ‘the flop’. Now follows a 2nd round of wagering, after that the dealer tosses out a further card and deals one more card onto the table. After this, competitors can employ the sixth card to form a five-card poker hand.

Another round of betting follows, and in many styles of games, here is where the wager size doubles. There is another round of burning a card, and a final placing of a card face-up on the table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now use any of the five cards on the poker table, and/or the two cards in their hand, to form a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there is another round of wagering. Then, all the players remaining start to reveal their hands. This is describe as the "showdown". Clearly, the competitor who has the strongest hand is the winner. When competitors have even hands a splitting of the pot is used.

Texas hold’em is a simple game to pick up, but to acquire expertise one needs a ton of practice.
