postheadericon Steps for playing Poker Online

The sole motive of any game is to make the players experience some relaxation. The games that involve money can be a bit tense- but players need to calm. Invest wisely and do not worry about losing later on. Every game of poker has a set of steps and rules that need to be followed while playing the game.

While the steps are simple and get easier with practice there are some poker online rules which cannot be overlooked either. We will discuss them in some other article. This article is to help you as a beginner in the game.

Let’s know the terms first

Dealer- One of the players. The position is called the button and it rotates clockwise after every hand- which means it keeps on transferring with every round.

Blinds- The two players in the adjacent left of the dealer are referred to as the small blind and the big blind, respectively. Both the blinds require forced bets of a pre-decided amount and the players need to put money in the pot before the dealing of cards.

Hole cards- Every player gets first two cards with face down- they are called that.

The first round of the game

The first betting round begins with the player sitting immediately to the left of the big blind after the cards are dealt. This player can fold, call or bet. The series then continues clockwise When the first betting round gets completed, three community cards are flipped face-up on the table. This is called “The Flop.”

Round two and Round Three

The second round of betting gets started with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting restart, clockwise, with each player having the option to check, bet, call or fold. When the second round of betting gets finished, a fourth community card is flipped face-up on the table. This is called the turn. The third round of betting gets started with the first remaining player sitting to the left of the button. When the third round of betting gets over a fifth community card is flipped face-up on the table. This is called the river.

Final Round

The fourth round is the final round of bets begins again with the first player sitting to the left of the button and still in play and operating on the same principle as the previous ones. If two or more players are left in the hand after the final betting round, they enter into a “showdown.” All players left to reveal their hands and the player with the highest 5-card poker hand wins. See Poker Hand Rankings here. Players make up their best 5-card poker hands by using one, two or none of their hole cards combined with the 5 community cards on the board.

It has been observed by the players that every game is in itself a unique and different experience. And the professional players advise everyone to not take the game seriously.

The money should be wisely managed so that a fun activity remains fun only.
