In holdem, the initial step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a set amount of cash. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used phrase for this play. In the following step, the dealer shuffles the deck of cards and deals 2 cards face down to all players. A regular deck of 52 cards is used in the deal. After the deal, there is the initial round of wagering. This round is typically referred to as a "pre-flop".

After the first betting round, the first card is thrown away. This thrown away card is known as the "burn card", and this is performed to make sure that there is definitely no cheating. The next three cards are then dealt face up on the table. These cards are referred to as ‘the flop’. Now follows a second sequence of betting, after that the dealer burns a further card and deals one more card onto the poker table. Following this, competitors can use the sixth card to create a 5card poker hand.

Another sequence of wagering happens, and in a good many types of games, here is where the bet amount doubles. There is an additional round of burning a card, and a final deal of a card face-up on the poker table. This is called the "river". Players can now use any of the five cards on the board, and/or the 2 cards in their pocket, to assemble a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there is an additional round of betting. After that, all the players left begin to show their hands. This is called the "showdown". Obviously, the bettor who has the greatest hand wins. When players have equal hands a splitting of the pot is used.

Holdem is a simple game to understand, but to achieve expertise it requires a fair amount of practice.
