Texas Holdem Poker Lingo

With any type of card game poker 88, there are many words that signal the dealer to perform different actions. Many of the same words and signals transfer over to Texas Holdem, but it’s a good idea to go over the basic phrases in case you’re new to game dewa poker online and Texas Holdem.

  • Ante – Before the game begins, two players place a small amount of money in the game. There’s a big blind and a small blind. The big blind is slightly more money than the small blind. Each player takes a turn putting in a big and small blind, and the responsibility for the blind changes after each round. In some variations, each player antes up at the beginning of each round and there is no big or small blind
  • Fold – Folding is when the player declines to continue and forfeits any money that they’ve bet. The player can fold at any point during a round. If you know that you’ve lost the round, and you don’t want to lose any more money, then folding is a good idea
  • Check – Checking is when you declare that you don’t want to make a bet at the beginning of the round. It’s not always possible to check, and if another player makes a bet you’ll have to call his bet to continue, or fold
  • Call – If a player makes a bet, you can bet the same amount in order to go on to the next round by calling his bet
  • Raise – If another player bets a certain amount, you can bet more, which will cause the other player to either call the amount you bet, or fold

Bluff – A bluff is when a player doesn’t have a winning hand, but tricks the other players into folding by betting a great deal of money, or through other means
