Players are dealt 2 cards and have to combine them with 5 community cards to get the best hand. A single hand of Texas Hold'em can end in either one player outbetting everyone else, forcing them to fold, or a showdown of the hands.
In Texas Hold’em, you can bet on a maximum of 7 cards:
  • holecards - two cards that you get at the beginning of a game in the pre-flop phase
  • the flop - three cards dealt on the table after the initial betting phase
  • the turn - one card dealt on the table after the flop
  • the river - one final card dealt on the table
Betting takes place after each round of dealing cards. All bets go into the pot at the center of the table, which eventually goes to the winner(s) of the hand. There are four basic actions during a betting round:
  • fold - when facing a bet or raise, pay nothing and throw away the cards in your hand (the hole), forfeiting your chance to win the pot
  • check - if you aren't facing a bet or raise, opt not bet or raise yourself. Sometimes people use the word "pass"
  • call - match the current highest bet on the table. If you don't have that many chips, you can go "all-in". If there remain other people in the hand, he difference between your stack and the highest bet will be put into a side-pot that those players will continue to play for (you are still eligible to win the main pot).
  • bet/raise - increase the size of the pot. Other players who do not match your wager must fold. The big blind is always the lower limit on bets, and the size of the last bet or raise is the lower limit for a raise.

Played the same way as Texas Hold'em variant with some differences:
  • You are dealt 4 hole cards instead of 2. That increases the chances of getting a stronger hand.
  • Maximum bet/raise amount must be equivalent to the current pot value.

Same as Texas Hold'em with a special case: This is a bluffing artifact that players can use. It's risky and consist of making everyone fold after an aggressive bet from a player that has as hole cards 7 and 2 off suit (the worst possible starting hand).
If that happens (everyone folds), the winner receives the pot as usual but the next hand is special.
  • Two hole cards are dealt as normal.
  • Everybody but the winner must bet an amount equivalent to the winner's stack or go all-in.
  • The winner has the chance to participate in the special hand going all-in or fold.
  • After this mandatory round of bets, flop, turn and river are dealt consecutively to finally discover the Bounty Winner 👑 at the showdown.
