When all ten seats are occupied, the game will start and you will be assigned a seat. The game begins with a hand (marked ‘D’) when two players place a blind, a small and a big blind.
Each player is assigned two cards. The player who is first for the big blind is first in line. When it’s your turn, you can equalize, raise, or resign. If you are in the small blind position, you have already contributed half of the required bet to look at the following cards.
If you are in the big blind position, you have already placed the bet required to watch the flop if no player in front of you has raised. If you have a raised bet in front of you, you have a choice between raising again, equalizing and resigning.
Flop: The three community cards are face up. Any player at the table who has not resigned before the flop can now use these cards in drawing their hand, followed by the first phase of betting. If no one is betting, you can simply check in and look at the next card without placing bets. The bet must be called or raised to see the next card, otherwise you must withdraw.
Turn: The fourth community card is face up. Again, any player still in the game can check, bet, call, raise or resign, depending on the moves of the others. River: Fifth, the last card turns up. Here is the last stage of betting. If someone bets and the other player calls, both players turn over their cards, the winner of the game is determined like at Linksbo.
If at any stage of the bet the player’s bet has not been called, that player gets the bet. This player has the choice to show his cards or simply give them back to the dealer (in muck).
Once the winner is determined, a new game begins and the dealer moves one place clockwise. Blind bets usually increase over a period of time.
When the last player is eliminated, the prize pool is divided and the tournament is over.
