Texas Hold'em Rules
The aim of Texas Hold'em poker is to make the best hand by combining the
cards in your hand and the community cards in the centre of the table.
Each player receives two cards face down called hole cards. The first
round of betting goes ahead followed by three community cards placed face up in
the middle of the table (the flop).
A second round of betting occurs and players have the option to fold if they
do not want to play their hand. A fourth card is turned and placed next to the
community cards (4th Street) and a third round of betting takes place.
The final card that is revealed is called the river and stimulates the
final round of betting. The players that are left in the game (i.e. haven't
folded) all reveal their cards, and these cards are combined with the cards in
the middle to see which way each hand will make the best hand of poker cards.
