The following 3 cards are then revealed face up on the table. These cards are ‘the flop’. Now follows a 2nd round of wagering, after which the croupier tosses out a further card and turns over one more card onto the poker table. Following this, players can use the 6th card to create a 5card poker hand.

Another sequence of wagering follows, and in a good many types of games, here is where the bet size increases. There is a further round of tossing aside a card, and a last deal of a card face-up on the table. This is referred to as the "river". Bettors can now make use of any of the five cards on the board, or the two cards in their pocket, to assemble a 5card poker hand.

To finish it up there is an additional sequence of betting. After that, all the players remaining start to show their hands. This is called the "showdown". Obviously, the competitor who holds the greatest hand is the winner. When gamblers have even hands a splitting of the pot is considered.
