Betting continues on each betting round until all active players (who have not folded) have placed equal bets in the pot.
After seeing his or her hole cards, each player now has the option to play his or her hand by calling or raising the big blind. The action begins to the left of the big blind, which is considered a ‘live’ bet on this round. That player has the option to fold, call or raise. For example, if the big blind was $2, it would cost $2 to call, or at least $4 to raise. Action then proceeds clockwise around the table.
Three cards are dealt face-up on the board. The three cards on the flop are community cards, available to all players still in the hand. Betting on the flop begins with the active player clockwise from the Small Blind. The betting options are similar to pre-flop, however if nobody has previously bet, players may opt to Check, passing the action to the next active player clockwise.
When the betting action is completed for the flop round, Fourth card is dealt face-up on the board. The fourth card on the turn is fourth community card. Another round of betting ensues, beginning with the active player clockwise from the Small Blind.
When the betting action is completed for the turn round, Fifth card is dealt face-up on the board. The fifth card on the river is fifth and final community card. Another round of betting ensues, beginning with the active player clockwise from the Small Blind.
If there is more than one remaining player when the final betting round is complete, players shows their cards. The player with the best five-card poker hand wins the pot. In the event of identical hands, the pot will be equally divided between the players with the best hands.
After the pot is awarded, the Dealer now moves clockwise to the next player, blinds are once again posted, and new hands are dealt to each player.
