Pre-flop

The distribution of the cards begin with the player positioned to the left of the dealer (dealer button) in clockwise direction and this will be the last to speak in the course of the hand.

The player to the left of the dealer is the Small Blind (SB) and following the Big Blind (BB). These two players are the ones who have to make the forced bet on the table. In the next hand the button is run thus changing the position of the SB and BB.




The first player to speak is the one on the left of the Big Blind and will have three options for action. Fold, call or raise the minimum bet.

If the player's hand is not good you will have the option to fold, can match (call) if you think you have a hand, paying the minimum it would be worth the big blind, or may increase (raise) the committed at least twice the value of the big blind, while the other players must match the bet if they want to continue in the hand.
Once all players have matched the bet or have left the hand will proceed to distribute the first three community cards that are called “the flop”.

Flop
The flop is already on the table, here is where the second round of betting. The first player to speak is that which is located in the small blind with options to bet or check.




If the player chooses to bet, the next player to speak will have the option to pay (call), fold or increase (raise). When all players have completed the wagering or have left the hand, will be distributed the fourth community card called “the turn”.

Turn
After the appearance of the fourth community card is continued with another round of betting will begin again with the player to the left of the button (SB). When you complete this round of betting will last community card, “the river”.






River
This will be the last round of betting, as it is the card letter out of the five community cards. Like the previous round, the betting process will be developed accordingly. Once matched all bets, will reveal each player's hole cards and the possessor of the best hand wins the pot that has been formed. If hands tie the pot will be shared equally.



 

Texas Holdem

 

Tournaments
In this mode players usually sign up for a tournament will have to pay the buy in more rake for the house, for example if the tournament is $ 4 + $ 0.40, four dollars will be for the prizepool and forty cents U.S. dollars will be allocated to the commission.

With the tournament registration will be given a equal number of chips to all players. The player that is declared winner of the tournament will stay with the chips of all players. The tournaments usually have a play structure where the blinds (minimum bet) increase every time. This forces players to have to make moves during the tournament, if not blind end with his stack. It is often said that a tournament has, for example, levels of 15 minutes, means that when the value of the blinds increases (usually doubling) every 15 minutes.

The tournament structure also determines the number of players who enter the prizes. It is common practice to award prizes to 10% of the players participating in the tournament and shared the same pyramidal form occurs until the first post.


Cash
This mode known as cash game or ring games is very different from the previous one, as the blinds go up and you choose not to sit at a table at a certain level. The level is given by the value of the blinds, for example in a table blinds $ 1 / $ 2 (the value of the small blind is $ 1 and the big blind 2 $), you can enter to play with up to 100 blinds, which for this example would be $ 200.

Unlike tournament mode you can get out of your seat when you want and blinds do not raise, the minimum bet is always the same.

The commission of the room (rake) in cash tables will be a percentage of money generated in each pot.


No limit or limit
In both tournaments and cash games there are the modalities of No Limit (No Limit Texas Hold'em), certainly the most popular, or Limit (Limit Texas Hold'em), a method practiced by fewer players.

In Texas Hold'em, each bet the players can put all your chips on the table, while in Limit Texas Hold'em betting values are preset by the level of the table. In the table limit $ 1 / $ 2 bets preflop and the flop be bet or raise worth $ 1. The turn and river the amount goes to a max of $ 2.
