Rules of playing Texas Hold'em Poker - Part 2

6. Each of the players in the game is then dealt two cards face down and these are called the 'hole' or 'pocket' cards.

7. Next comes a round of betting which starts with the person to the left of the two who posted the blinds. The poker term for this particular round is the 'pre-flop'. From here, Texas Hold'em poker is much the same as most other games of poker in that players can choose to check, raise, or fold their cards.

8. Players are allowed to bet, raise or re-raise any amount which is equal or greater than the minimum bet which should also equal the amount of the big blind.

9. In no limit Texas Hold'em, you are only limited by the number of chips or amount of money that you have in front of you and this determines your maximum bet. A player may choose to go 'all-in' by pushing all their chips toward the centre of the table. When this happens, either or both the player or the dealer should work out the amount of the players all-in bet. If the other players at the table wish to call, they must match the value of the bet.
