The dealer begins game by dealing two cards to each player; this round is known as ‘Pre-Flop'. The two cards dealt by poker dealer are placed face down on table – these cards are called pocket or hole cards.
A round of betting occurs before second round of cards is dealt. In this round poker dealer places 3 cards face up on poker table. This is known in Texas Hold em Poker games as ‘Flop'. Each player now has an opportunity to bet or check.
By ‘checking' you are choosing not to bet but you still remain in game, checking is only allowed if there have been no bets placed before your turn in that round.
