To win at poker, you must have the best 5-card hand amongst your opponents or bluff them into thinking that you have the better hand.
In Hold’em, all players receive two face-down cards as their personal hand, after which there is a round of betting. Three face-up board cards are turned simultaneously (called the “Flop”) and another round of betting occurs. The next two board cards are turned one at a time, with a round of betting after each card. In Limit Hold’em the last two betting rounds are doubles of the betting round on the Flop.
The board cards are community cards, and after the final round of betting, a player may use any five-card combination from among the board and personal cards. A player may even use all of the board cards and no personal cards to form a hand. This is called “playing the board.” Hold’em uses a flat disk called a dealer button to indicate the player who is in the dealer position for that hand (even though a non-playing casino employee actually deals). The dealer button rotates clockwise. The player with the dealer button is last to receive cards on the initial deal and has the right of last action after the first betting round.
