How To Play Texas Hold'em

Step 4: The Betting Process

Picture of The Betting Process
The bet starts with the player after the big blind.  Betting moves clock-wise.  The first player has three options, he/she can call the bet set by the big blind, raise, or fold.  The act  of calling means you put out the equal amount of chips in the pot as the previous bet.  Raising the bet means that you put in more chips in the pot than the previous bet.  The amount of the raise becomes the new stake for the rest of the player that they must match before continuing.  Folding means that you give up your chance of winning and turn in your cards to the dealer.   Once all player have either folded or called the acting bet the play continues.
