To begin a hand, three hole cards are dealt to each player. Players examine their cards, and then take part in a round of betting. Following the betting, a card is burned and three community cards are dealt. This is known as the flop. Another round of betting occurs, after which the players discard one of their three hole cards. Another card is burned and the fourth community card, the turn, is dealt. A third round of betting takes place, another card is burned, and then the final community card, the river, is dealt. The players bet one last time, the hands are revealed, and the winning hand takes the pot. If a Hi/Lo split is being played, and if there is a qualifying low hand is present, the low hand takes half of the pot and the best hand takes the other half of the pot.
