Beginning

When you play Texas Holdem poker, each player is dealt two cards face down – these are called your "Hole Cards". Then there is a series of bets where you can pass, bet or fold. This stage of the game is known as pre-flop and what you need to do depends on these hole cards, or the starting hand.

After the first round of betting, the dealer places 3 open cards in the center of the table. This is called the flop.

After that, there is another betting round, then the dealer deposits an open 4th card on the table, it is called "the Turning".

Your best Texas Holdem hands will be made using your (private) hole cards and the five community cards in the center to make the best possible five-card hand of poker . Not sure you know the best Texas Holdem poker hands? You can visit the page d 'poker hand order for more information!

So, for example, if you have 9-9 and the shared cards are 9-9-A-5-2 you have a square. If the shared cards were J-Q-K-7-2, you would only have two pairs of nines.

Sometimes the best hand in Texas Holdem is made themselves by the five shared cards. If they were 10-10-10-10-A and you had 9-9 your hole cards will not play because there is a higher value square already open.

End

There are two ways out when one-handed.

One being when the players in a hand show their hole cards and the player with the best hand wins. This is called slaughter.

The other is that someone will bet enough until everyone folds. This is the way most hands end in Texas Hold'em and that's the magic of the game – you don't always need the best hand to win.

Let's recap now...

Okay, so let's go over how to make a Texas Holdem poker hand using only poker slang and see if you can hold.

First of all, you receive your hole cards. Then there is a betting round. Then the remaining players see a flop. Then there is another round of betting. Then you see a rotating card. Then another round of paris. Then a last river map. Then, another round of betting. The best five-card hand wins.

The goal of poker is to make the best five-card poker hand out of the seven available cards (five community cards plus your own 2 hole cards). This means that in the case of a tie with square, three of a kind, two pairs, a pair or high card, a side card, or "kicker", comes into play to decide who wins the pot.

For example:

Player A's top five cards

Player A's top five cards

The Player won the hand with Q kicker.

With a three-of-a-kind, a pair or a high-card tie, a second, third or even fourth kicker could intervene in the game to decide the pot. If the kickers can't come up with an overall winner, the players involved will just have to share the pot.
