INTRODUCTION TO POKER

Tutorial How to Play Poker –  At the beginning of playing you will be faced with the basic rules of this game, at the beginning of the game you will be given two initial cards called Hole Cards. In Texas Hold’Em the player’s goal is to make the best five card combination. The game moves clockwise starting from the left of the dealer’s position. In general, the first two players to the left of the dealer’s position are required to place the small blind and large blind to start betting. From there the action moves based on several stages of preflop, flop, turn, and river.

In texas holdem the player in the closest position receives the last action in all post-flop stages of the game, this position will also dictate which player should start with the small blind and big blind. And will also determine where the distribution of cards begins. The player who will receive the first card is the player to the left of the dealer.

Before the round starts two players will be required to place bets to start the game, because without this initial bet the game will feel very boring and less challenging. The player to the left of the dealer will place the small blind and the player to his or her left will place the big blind. Usually the small blind is half of the big blind. Although these conditions are different for each room and can also depend on the game being played.

POKER GAME OBJECTIVE

In Texas Hold’Em each player will receive two cards in a closed state called hole cards, these two cards will always be face down until the end of the betting round which is usually called the showdown. Texas holdem is a five card game that will be displayed on the table, which will be used with the hole cards owned by the player to make the best five card combinations.

Five cards will be displayed simultaneously in the middle of the table on the flop, turn, and river stages. On the flop there will be three cards that will be opened together. Then on the turn will be added one card, and on the river will be equipped with one more card. These five cards will be visible to all players after five cards have been placed. Players must make the best five-card combination of these seven cards. And this can be done with two hole cards and three common cards or it can also be done with one hole card and four community cards, or it can also be done with five shared cards as a combination. And the player who gets the best five-card combination will get the pot, which is the total of all bets issued during that round.
