How to play Texas Hold’em:
Texas Hold’em is a version of Poker where players are dealt two cards face down, known as the hole or hold cards. Five community cards are dealt face up after three betting stages. Players try to make the best hand with their two personal cards and the community cards. Players have betting options to check, call, raise or fold during each betting round. The person with the best hand wins.
