Rules
Each player is dealt two down (or hole) cards that only they can see. A round of betting occurs (sometimes this round of betting cannot include "raises" if "No Preflop" has been turned on. This means that there cannot be any raises before the Flop. Three community cards (known as the "flop") are dealt face up in the middle of the table. Another round of betting occurs. A fourth community card (known as the "turn") is dealt face up on the table. Another round of betting occurs. A fifth and final community card (known as the "river") is dealt face up on the table. A final round of better occurs. The player's hole cards are revealed and the player with the best fivecard poker hand wins the pot. Your five card hand can consist of none, one, or both of your hole cards along with five, four, or three of the community cards. If two or more players share the same best hand, the pot is divided equally among the winners.
