Welcome to Texas Hold'em Poker

Texas Hold'em is a fast and fun variation of Seven Card Stud. It is the most popular game on the planet and the game of choice for all Poker Tournament Championship Events.

Hold'em is played with a standard 52-card deck and as many as 10 participants. Initially, two cards (hole cards) are dealt face down to each player, then there is a betting round. Three cards, customarily called the flop, are then dealt face up in the center of the table. Those three community cards are part of each player's hand. Another betting round occurs. Another card, called the turn, is dealt in the center, followed by another betting round. Then a final card, called the river, is dealt in the center, followed by a final betting round. The hole cards of bet and called hands are turned over and a winner is determined by the highest five-card hand.
