How to play a basic online poker game?
In a basic online poker game, a deck of 52 cards is used with multiple players playing the game out of which two players play as small blind and big blind where they make a forced bet (the blind or ante). In order to make the game fair and square, the roles of the small blind and big blind changes from person to person as the game proceeds. There are four basic rounds in this game which is as follows:
- PREFLOP round – This is where the person next to the big blind starts by choosing one out of the three options which are Call (putting in the same bet as big blind), Raise (putting in more bet than the big blind) or Fold (withdrawing the cards away). The rest of the players can choose any of the same three options and follow the same procedure. Once every player has contributed the same amount of bet, it is moved to the middle of the table and the next round begins.
- FLOP round – It is the round in online poker where three community cards are dealt face up on the table. Every player can use his two cards and three community cards to form a five-hand poker hand. Here the small blind starts playing the game by posing one out of three options which are call for Check (not betting anything) , Bet (by putting some bet on the table) in which case the other players will have to match the bet if they want to stay in the game and the final is Fold. Once a player has finished the act the next player can go forward and pose a call, raise or fold. This is repeated with every player and once every player has contributed the same amount of bet, it is moved to the middle of the table and the next round begins.
- TURN – This is dealt with an extra community card where the players can now form a five hand card out of the total six cards. The procedure for this round is same as that played in Flop round.
- RIVER round – This round is again dealt with an extra community card. The players can form a five-hand card by choosing from a total of 7 cards. The procedure for this round is the same as that played in the second and third round. At the end of this round the remaining players have to show their cards up and one with the best five hand cards wins the game along with the bet.
