.. the key to success in poker is in your hands.

Firstly, all players put in an ante (see Betting Basics for more on this). Next, starting with the player on the dealer’s immediate left, the dealer gives each player five face-down cards. After each player inspects their cards privately, betting occurs, starting with the player to the left of the dealer. Once all betting is done, all remaining players are able to trade up to three cards in their hand for the same number of new cards from the deck. Players with aces in their hands may trade four cards, but will be required to show their ace to the dealer. It’s OK not to trade at all – this may be the best option if you already have a great hand. Once everybody has their new hand, betting occurs yet again, starting with the player on the dealer’s left. Once betting finishes, players display their hands to the table and the player with the best five-card hand wins the game!
