Poker for Beginners
See the flop
After the first round of betting has been settled, the dealer reveals the first 3 cards of the hand, called the flop. The dealer places the top card on the deck facedown. This is referred to as a Burn card. The next three cards from the deck are displayed faceup. Each player now has 2 cards in their personal hand and 3 community cards. Another round of betting begins, starting with the player to the left of the dealer.
