How to Beat the Dealer at Poker
Poker is a card game where players bet into a central pot of chips. Traditionally, the first round of betting occurs before the cards are dealt. This initial stage consists of three betting rounds: The flop, the turn and the river.
Flop is where the dealer deals three face-up community cards, giving everyone in the hand a chance to raise or fold. The next round, the turn, reveals an additional community card, which again gives all players in the hand a chance to raise or call.
The turn is an important betting round, since it reveals the fourth community card. This card can give someone a great hand or can kill their chances of winning the hand.
It is also a good idea to bet as aggressively as possible during the turn and river, especially if you have a strong value hand. This will make other players think twice about going head-to-head against you and they may cough up to stay in the hand.
