Once all players receive their two hole cards there is a round of betting. The round is initiated by the player to the left of the dealer putting in 2 mandatory bets called blinds into the pot. Players can raise, call or fold. After the raises are called there is another card dealt face up to the table that anyone can use which is called the flop. Then there is a final bet and everyone shows their hands. The player with the best poker hand wins.

Poker is a very fun game and it can be a very profitable game when played smartly. It’s very important to play only with money you are willing to lose and to track your losses and wins.
