How to play the most popular online poker

The dealer / croupier hands out two cards to every player. Other five cards are laid on the table face up, one by one, to create a so-called board. These cards are common for all players. There are three phases in which the cards are laid on the table. The first one is called FLOP, where three cards at once are revealed. This is followed by TURN which shows the fourth card. RIVER shows the fifth one.

Bets can be taken in all game phases (pre-flop, flop, turn, river). After the last round, there comes so-called SHOWDOWN. All players who stayed in the game show their cards. The most valuable combination, consisting of player's and common cards, wins. In case of sameness, the bank divides the winning equally.
