To win the game, you can will all of the opponents to folding or win via showdown with the best possible hands from your hole cards and community cards. There’s no requirement how many cards in your hole cards can be used. Because of this, the community hand can be treated as your highest set.
- Standard 52-card deck is used.
- Up to ten players can play at the same time
- Ace is the highest card in the game and will only be lower if applied as a straight hand (5-4-3-2-Ace).
- There are four rounds of betting in every game.
Each player will receive two cards face down. These cards will be with them for the rest of the game. No additional card will be provided. The first action of the game usually starts at the person to the left of the dealer-button . During this round, some players will bet, fold, call or raise.
The flop is the first three community cards displayed before the players. They will be able to know their situation based on the cards at hand. In this part, the player that has the small blind starts. As long as the player assigned to start the bet is in the game, he will always start the bet in that round. If that person resigns in the round before the pre-flop, the person on the left of the blind will start. The bet size is still the lowest limit of the table.
“The Turn” refers to another community card (the fourth one) is displayed. It’s pretty much the same except that they lowest possible bet is now the high limit of the table.
With the same high limit as the minimum bet, this part of the game completes the five cards needed to win the game. Most of the time, this is going to be a serious psychological war. The players already know their cards but their trying to manipulate their opponents to get the most out of it.
Each hand in play is revealed. Your two cards will be combined with five community cards to know which one is ranked higher. Others, who are still active in the game for a showdown, surrender knowing that their card will not fare well. In some cases, the earnings have to be split because two players or more have the same set of cards.
