Short Explanation of the Texas Holdem Rules

The two players sitting left of the dealer place the Small Blind and Big Blind bet. The bets are blind because no cards have been dealt yet. The amount of the bets depends on the table's limit. Players are dealt 2 cards facedown. The first betting round starts. You can equal the bet of the previous player, raise it or accept your losses and leave the game (fold). Three community cards are now being placed in the middle of the table face-up. All players share these cards. The second betting round follows. A fourth community card is dealt face-up, followed by a betting round. The final (5th) community card is placed face-up in the middle of the table. The final and most exciting betting round follows. The end of the game is the showdown, where remaining players show their best poker hand (5 cards) created out of their 2 cards and the 5 community cards. Best hand wins!

Tip 2: There are many different kinds of Texas Holdem poker tables with different betting stakes. Choose the betting limit that fits your budget best.
