Online Texas Hold’em poker is a very popular card game. It is played using your typical 52 cards deck of 4 suits and 13 cards per suit.

It is played all around the globe in many countries in private homes, in casinos and in private members clubs.It is also played online in probably every country on earth.

This game requires at least 2 players and can include a maximum of 11 players.

The normal ranking of poker hands apply to Texas Hold'em where for instance a straight is beaten by a flush and four of a kind beats a house.

The average Texas hold'em game can be divided into 5 different categories.

1) The Preflop: Each player is dealt 1 card by the dealer who is identified by the position of a button.

Then a 2nd card is dealt to each player around the table, both cards being dealt facing down. The 1st round of bets now take place.

2) The Flop: this is where the dealer deals 3 cards and place them face up in the center of the table.

This is known as the flop and they are available to be used by each player as they see fit hence they are known as community cards. The 2nd round of bets are now taken.

3) The Turn: A 4th card is dealt facing up by the dealer next to the flop. This card is also known as the "turn" card or the "4th street". The 3rd round of bets now takes place.

4) The River: Finally the 5th and last card is now dealt next to the turn card making it 5 community cards. This card is also called the "river" or "5th street". The last round of bets now takes place.

5) The Showdown: By this time some players might have folded their hands and so cannot win.

The players still in the game then show their hands starting with the player who bet first. The best hand of 5 from the 5 community cards and the 2 cards in each players is declared the winner of the pot.

A hand can be made using just 1 card from the 2 cards a player has and 4 of the community cards.

Likewise the best hand of 5 on the table could be the 5 community cards. In a case like this then all remaining players in the game splits the pot evenly.

Apart from these 5 categories, the below describes the hand rankings from the highest to the lowest in online Texas hold'em poker:

- Straight flush: this is when you have 5 same suit cards in consecutive order.

- 4 of a kind: this is when you have 4 exact value cards and a 5th card of any other value.

- Full house: 3 same value cards plus 2 exact value cards but different value from the 3.

- Flush: having 5 same suit cards but not in consecutive order.

- Straight: 5 consecutive cards but with at least 2 suits represented.

- 3 of a kind: having 3 exact value cards plus 2 other cards not the same value as those 3 or of each other.

- 2 pairs: having 2 sets of 2 exact value cards plus a 5th card of different value of the other 4.

- Pair: having 2 exact value cards plus 3 other cards not of the same value as the pair or with each other.

- High: having 5 cards all of different values and not in consective order and at least 2 suits represented.

When there are poker hands with the same ranking value then the height of the individual cards will determine the winner. In the case of a house though it's the hand having the higher 3 card value that wins.
