The dealer will place three cards, faced up, at the middle of the table.

This part is called the Flop and these cards are used by all the players as community cards.

The Flop is followed by a second round of betting, but this time starting with the player to the immediate left of the dealer.

Each player have the choice of folding, calling or raising the pot in every betting round.
