Texas Holdem Poker Terms

If you're new to Texas Holdem poker this article will be very useful. It's fairly easy to find online poker articles that offer tips and strategies to improve your game, but often they're filled with confusing Poker Terms. So if ever you get stuck you can simply refer to this list of Texas Holdem Poker Terms.

Fixed Limit Texas Holdem Poker:
In this type of poker game the betting is limited to a predefined amount. Usually you'll be able to see the limit in the description of the poker room, displayed as: $5/10. Meaning all bets are limited to $5 in the pre-flop and flop and $10 in the turn and river.

Pot Limit Texas Holdem Poker:
These types of poker games also have limited betting but it is not predetermined, rather the limit is set to the current size of the pot. As the pot grows so does the betting limit.

No Limit Texas Holdem Poker:
In these games the betting is not limited in any way, although some casinos do place a restriction on how often you're allowed to raise in a single game. These games are mostly played by experienced poker players.

Blind Bet:
Blind bets are forced bets. A blind bet is used to begin the betting before the players are dealt any cards. The first two players to the left of the dealer button are normally required to place blind bets.

Call:
A call is a betting option. To call in poker means to match the bet of another player. So if Player A, bet $5 and you 'call', you're saying that you'll match his $5 bet.

Check:
To 'check' is to not place a bet. You only have the option to check if no other bets have been placed before in the round. By checking you're choosing not to bet, and as opposed to folding, you're still in the game.

Fold:
To 'fold' is to quit the current hand, you're choosing not to place any more bets and end your participation in that hand.

Raise:
To 'raise' means to place a larger bet than the player before. If Player A bets $5, to raise you would then place a bet of $6 or more.

Going 'All In':
Going 'all in' means you're betting everything you have on your hand. If Player A bets $200 and you cannot match that bet, you have the option of going 'all in'. If you win the hand you're paid a portion of the pot ? relative to the amount you've wagered.

Dealer Button:
The Dealer button is a token which is passed around the table in a clockwise direction after every hand. The dealer button is used to determine who the dealer is for that hand. It also determines who needs to place the blind bets, it is common for the first two players to the left of the dealer to place blind bets.

Pre-Flop
The pre-flop is the first round of Texas holdem poker. Players are dealt two cards each, and these are referred to as pocket cards.

Flop
The flop is the second round of poker, and occurs when the first three communal cards are dealt face up on the poker table. These cards can be used by everyone in the Poker Room to create the best 5-card hands.

Turn
The turn is the Third round. In this round a fourth communal card is dealt face up.

River
The river is the final round of Texas Holdem Poker. In this round the firth communal card is placed face up on the poker table.
