The player immediately clockwise from the small blind posts the "big blind", which is typically twice the size of the small blind, but the blinds can vary depending on the stakes and betting structure being played. In Limit games, the big blind is the same as the small bet, and the small blind is typically half the size of the big blind but may be larger depending on the stakes. Now, each player receives his or her two hole cards.
Exactly which options are available depends on the action taken by the previous players. If nobody has yet made a bet, then a player may either check decline to bet, but keep their cards or bet.
If a player has bet, then subsequent players can fold, call or raise. To call is to match the amount the previous player has bet. To raise is to not only match the previous bet, but to also increase it. 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.
That player has the option to fold, call or raise. Action then proceeds clockwise around the table. The betting structure varies with different variations of the game. Betting continues on each betting round until all active players who have not folded have placed equal bets in the pot. Now, three cards are dealt face-up on the board. In Hold'em, 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 immediately clockwise from the button.
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. Another round of betting ensues, beginning with the active player immediately clockwise from the button. The river is the fifth and final community card in a Hold'em game. Betting again begins with the active player immediately clockwise from the button, and the same betting rules apply as they do for the flop and turn, as explained above.
If there is more than one remaining player when the final betting round is complete, the last person to bet or raise shows their cards, unless there was no bet on the final round in which case the player immediately clockwise from the button shows their cards first.
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. Hold'em rules state that all suits are equal. After the pot is awarded, a new hand of Hold'em is ready to be played. The button now moves clockwise to the next player, blinds and antes are once again posted, and new hands are dealt to each player. The bet slider and bet window will only allow you to bet amounts within the allowed thresholds.
