Difficult then for a lover of this game, do not try at least once the thrill of “sit” at a poker table Texas Holdem online.
Usually you will find online poker tables “singles”, available for a number of 2.6 .9, or 10 players and online poker tournaments ‘ multi-table ‘, which have a much wider and inscriptions often start at flextime. In both cases, each player who will be sitting at the virtual table game, will receive only two hole cards.

The phases of a hand of Texas Hold 'em onlineWe examine in detail the various stages of a hand of Texas Hold’em poker, so you have to clear the entire hand.
In online poker, virtual dealer distributes cards. One player at a time is symbolically the dealer: this does not mean that it will distribute the cards, but only that it will be marked with a button (in which appears the letter “D”), and the 2 players on his left will be the blinds into the pot (or “blind”). The player immediately to the left of the dealer pays the small blind (small blind) and the next player will pay the big blind (“big blind”). This takes place before the distribution of the cards, and aims to ensure a winning poker hand.
At this point, each player, starting with the one to the left of the dealer receives 2 cards (only visible by the player). You are then the first betting round, where each player can evaluate and decide to leave the game, see the stakes, or raise. This first phase of a hand of Texas Hold’em online, is called “pre-flop”.
On the virtual game board (the “board”), are then discovered three cards. There are three “community cards” which can be used by all players still in the competition, which in Texas Hold’em poker are called “the Flop”. Do you now another betting round, again starting with the player to the dealer’s left, which is the first to “talk”.
Another “community card” is then displayed on the board: this is the “Turn”, which follows another betting round between participants.
The last “community card” (the fifth), it then discovery: this is the phase of “River”, where you run the last betting round, which precedes the “Showdown”, the stage at which a player who made the last bet shows his cards.
The “Showdown” decreed the winner of the pot based on the highest point. Players, excluding those who made the last bet and must be the first to show the cards, they can choose not to see the hole cards, and give for the winning hand is shown by the opponent. Where there are equivalent points is taken as reference the card with the highest value, excluding those that compose the point (also known as the “kicker”). In the case of wholly equivalent scores, splits the pot in equal parts (in this case we have a “Split Pot”).
It continues with a new hand, the dealer button passes the player to the left.
