There are 11 poker variants, and BetGoals offers some of them.
Below we are going to explain one of the most practiced versions in the world: Texas Hold'em.
In a game of Texas Hold'em is used 52-card deck which is shuffled after each game round and each player is dealt two cards face down (the 'hole cards')
Over several betting rounds, five more cards are (eventually) dealt face-up in the middle of the table, these face-up cards are called 'community cards.' Each player is free to use the community cards in combination with their hole cards to build a five-card poker hand.
Your mission is to construct your five-card poker hands using the best available five cards out of the seven total cards (your two hole cards and the five community cards).
You can do that by using both your hole cards in combination with three community cards, one hole card in combination with four community cards, or no hole cards.
If the cards on the table lead to a better combination, you can also play all five community cards and forget about yours.
In a game of Texas Hold'em, you can do whatever works to make the best five-card hand.
