There are four betting rounds in a game of poker. In the first round called the preflop round the player acting next to the big blind position begins.

There are three different options this player can take he can call which means putting in the big blind or he can raise which means putting in more money than the big blind.

The last option is folding which means you throw your cards away. The next player will also have similar options. To all fold or raise once every player has contributed the same amount of money the chips are moved to the middle of the table.

And the second round, the flop round begins. In the second round three community cards are dealt face-up on the poker table every player can use his to private cards and the three community cards to form a five-card poker hand the small blind player is the first to act he can check which means not betting anything or he can bet by putting some money in the middle which other player will have to match if they want to stay in the game.

The final option is to fold which means throw your cards away. Just like in the preflop round once someone has finished acting the player to his left will act.
