Rules of Texas Holdem

Holdem poker is played with small and big blind bets forced bets by two players. Antes are contributions to the pot by all players, and may be used also in addition to blinds. A dealer button represents the player in the dealer position; the dealer button rotates clockwise after each hand, changing the position of the dealer and blinds. The small blind is posted by the player to the left of the dealer and is usually equal to half of the big blind. The big blind, posted by the player to the left of the small blind, is equal to the minimum bet. In a poker tournament , the blind-ante structure gets larger as the tournament progresses. more on rules of texas holdem poker
