Poker house rules and terminology

Rules

  1. Players are dealt two private cards (hole cards) that belong to them alone.

  2. Five community cards are dealt face-up on the board.

  3. Players use the best combination of five cards to form their hand.

  4. Betting rounds occur before the flop (first three community cards), after the flop, after the turn (fourth community card), and after the river (fifth community card).

  5. Players can check, bet, raise, or fold in each betting round.

  6. If a player can't or doesn't want to match a bet, they can fold, but any money they've already bet stays in the pot. When other players go above the original bet, this creates a side pot that the original player isn't eligible to win.

  7. The best hand, according to traditional hand rankings, wins the pot. If multiple pots (main and side pots) are present, they are awarded based on hand strength and betting participation.

  8. If a player does not play in time, their hand is folded and they are removed from the game.
