Hi, I’m Melissa Powell with Expert Village.
Now that we’ve gone over all of that, let?s
go through one fake game. Just so that you
can make sure that you know all of the rules
and how it works. So first off, we’re going
to go over who gets the dealer button. I will
deal one card face up to each player. The
highest number card will get the dealer button.
And then I just collect all of these cards,
as they only determine who was in the position
of power, which got the dealer button. Next
we determine from the dealer button that will
be the big and small blind. As we said, we’ll
go around in the circle, as if this was a
circle completed. And these two players will
be your big and small blind. This player will
be the small blind. And this player will be
the big blind. So, in this case, we have one
chip here for the small blind and two chips
here for the big blind. Now we can go ahead
and start dealing. From the deal I will always
deal to the right, to the immediate right
of the dealer button which we?ll go around
here to the small blind. Each player gets
two cards. And now we can start with the betting.
The betting will begin to my right, the players
left of the big blind. So the action starts
here on our black chip player. And I ask him
does he want to check, bet, raise, and fold.
He looks at his cards and determines what
he wants to do. Let?s imagine he wants to
play, so he’ll put in two chips just the same
as the big blind because he wants to play.
Let?s move on to the green player. Let?s say
he looks at his cards and he’s not thrilled.
He folds them. In order to fold them, he throws
them to me, and I collect them and muck them.
The red player over here also wants to play,
he puts in two chips. The blue player now
only has half of the big blind in. He must
bet at least another chip if he wants to play.
But let?s say he has excellent cards and he
would like to raise. In order to raise he
must bet at least the big blind plus another
big blind. This means four chips. Now the
betting goes around once again. Now the big
blind if he wants to play, has to put in two
more chips. Let?s imagine everyone else at
the table wants to play, and everybody has
the equivalent of four chips on the table.
I tap the table, pick up all the chips and
put them in the pot. Now each player has their
cards, and I burn the first card underneath
the stack of chips. The burn card again is
to determine and to make sure there?s no cheating
and no funny business.
