Each player in turn has the same three choices. If there has been a raise, each player who chooses to continue must either call the total bet thus far or raise. When the betting also called action gets to the blinds, they have the same choices. However, they already have chips in the pot, and those chips count towards their bet.
If there have been no raises when the bets gets to the big blind, that player has what is called the option. He can opt to raise, in which case each active player in turn is offered a choice of calling the raise or reraising or folding. The big blind can also choose not to raise, which stops the betting for that round.
The big blind in this option situation is known in poker parlance as a live blind. Once the betting for the round is equalized, that is, once everyone has had an opportunity either to fold or match the total betting, the dealer deals three cards face up in the center of the table. These first three of the community cards are called the flop. The second round of betting takes place.
In this round, the betting starts with the first active player one who still has cards to the left of the button. If the small blind called on the first round, that player would be first to act, even though he was next-to-last on the first round of betting.
Only in the first round sometimes called the preflop round does the betting start elsewhere. In all rounds after the first, the first player has two choices:. If no one bets, each player in turn has the same choices. It is possible in every round except the first for no betting to occur. No betting in a round is called being checked around. A player who checks retains his cards. If someone bets, when the action returns, a player who checked has the preceding three choices.
To check and then raise when the betting returns is known, reasonably enough, as check-raising. If you check with the intention of raising, you of course risk the possibility that no one will bet.
Once the betting for the second round is equalized, that is, once everyone has had an opportunity either to check or match the total betting for the round, the dealer deals one more card face up in the center of the table.
This fourth of the community cards is called the turn. The third round of betting takes place. Again, the betting starts with the first active player to the left of the button. The betting proceeds exactly the same as the second round. In a limit game, in the third round and fourth rounds the betting usually proceeds in increments twice the size of the first two rounds.
Once the betting for the third round is equalized, the dealer deals a fifth and final card face up in the center of the table. This last community card is called the river.
The fourth and final round of betting takes place. The betting proceeds exactly the same as the two previous rounds. Once the betting for the fourth round is equalized, the betting is over, and there is a showdown.
Remaining active players show their cards and the best hand, comprised of the best five cards from among each player's combination of two hole cards plus the community cards, wins.
