Texas Hold’em Poker

Rules

Texas Hold’em poker is the most popular version of poker in the world and is played using a standard 52 card deck with 2 to 10 players.

Every player gets two hole cards face-down. Then through four betting rounds a total of five community cards are dealt face-up on the table. Players must make the best five card hand with a combination of their hole cards and community cards. The player with the strongest hand wins.
