In texas hold’em, the first step is to get the game started, and for this the players put out a specific sum of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the frequently used term for this play. In the following step, the dealer shuffles the cards and gives out 2 cards face down to all players. A normal deck of fifty two playing cards is used in the deal. Then there is the initial sequence of wagering. This sequence is normally known as a "pre-flop".

After the 1st wagering round, the top card is tossed aside. This thrown away card is called the "burn card", and this is done to make sure that there is definitely no treachery. The following three cards are then revealed face up on the poker table. These cards are known as ‘the flop’. Now follows a second round of betting, after that the dealer tosses out another card and turns over 1 more card onto the table. Following this, competitors can employ the sixth card to create a five-card poker hand.

Another round of betting follows, and in a number of types of games, here is where the wager size increases. There is another round of throwing away a card, and a closing placing of a card face-up on the poker table. This is known as the "river". Competitors can now make use of any of the 5 cards on the table, and/or the two cards in their pocket, to form a 5card poker hand.

To wrap it up there’s a further round of wagering. Then, all the players left begin to show their hands. This is known as the "showdown". Obviously, the competitor who shows the greatest hand is the winner. When competitors have equal hands a splitting of the pot is considered.

Holdem is a basic game to pickup, but to achieve expertise it requires a large amount of studying.
