Poker chips or money to bet with A working knowledge of poker hands A group of 2 to 8
players and a table or surface to play on. Step 1. Choose a dealer. One way to do this is to deal cards around
the table face-up. The first player to get an Ace is the dealer. Step 2. The dealer shuffles and cuts the deck of cards. Step 3. Each player “antes up” by placing an amount
predetermined by the dealer into the pot. Step 4. The dealer deals around three times, distributing
a card at a time to each player, for a total of three cards each. The first two cards—called “hole cards”—are
dealt face-down; the third card—called a “door card”—is dealt face-up. Step 5. The dealer announces the lowest card showing,
and a round of betting follows, opened by the player holding the lowest card and proceeding
clockwise to his or her left. The opening bet is called a “bring in” and
is usually a small, nominal amount. If two or more players hold low cards of the
same value, the cards are then ranked alphabetically by their suit—club, diamond, heart, spade. So if four players hold Twos, the one holding
the Two of clubs makes the “bring in” bet. Step 6. The dealer deals a fourth card—called “fourth
street” or “the turn”—face-up to each player. The dealer announces the highest card or hand
showing and a round of betting follows, started by the player holding that high card or hand
and proceeding clockwise to his or her left. It’s also customary for the dealer to announce
any pairs that may be showing after the fourth card is dealt and any raises that occur during
betting. Step 7. The dealer deals a fifth card—called “fifth
street”—face-up to each player. The dealer announces the highest card or hand
showing and betting again follows, started by the holder of that high card or hand and
proceeding clockwise to his or her left. Step 8. The dealer deals a sixth card—called “sixth
street”—face-up to each player. The dealer announces the high card or hand
and betting again follows, started by the holder of that high card or hand and proceeding
clockwise to his or her left. Step 9. The dealer deals the final card—called “seventh
street” or “the river”—face-down to each player. The dealer announces the highest card or hand
showing and a final round of betting occurs, started by the holder of that high card or
hand and proceeding clockwise to his or her left. Step 10. When the betting has stopped, every player
still in the game turns their hand face-up, starting with the dealer. The player holding the best five-card poker
hand wins the game. Did you know A poker hand of two black Aces
