What is Poker?
Poker is a family of gambling card games involving betting and individual play, whereby the winner is determined by the ranks and combinations of players' cards, some of which remain hidden until the end of the game. Poker games vary in the number of cards dealt, the number of shared or community cards, and the number of cards that remain hidden. In this game we are following the rules of Texas Hold'em Poker.
How to play Texas Hold'em Poker?
Texas hold 'em is a variation of the standard card game of poker. Two cards (hole cards) are dealt face down to each player and then five community cards are placed face-up by the dealer -- series of three (the flop) then an additional single card (the turn or fourth) and another additional card (the river or fifth street). The best five card poker hand is obtained by taking cards from either the community or their hole cards. Players have the option to check, bet, raise or fold after each deal; i.e., betting may occur prior to the flop, on the flop, on the turn, and on the river.
