How the game starts

DEALING THE CARDS

THE DEALER

To identify who the “dealer” would be every player sitting on the table will take a card and that with the highest card will then become the dealer, croupier or button. When playing online poker the program would automatically deal the cards.

GAME DIRECTION

After the “dealer” has been identified the player on his immediate left will begin the round and the game will continue clockwise.
It is important to highlight that every poker hand must have from 2 to 10 players. If there are more than 10 players, more tables have to be opened (which is the case during tournaments), since there can’t be more than 10 players per table.
