What is ‘Round of Betting’?
A round of betting is the process that occurs in a game of poker in which the participating players are able to raise, call, fold or bet. The decision of which of these options to play is based on personal tactics and decision-making. The first round of betting starts after the flop has been dealt. There will then be two subsequent rounds of betting: one after the turn and another after the river. After this there will be no subsequent rounds and all remaining players will reveal their cards to see who has won that hand.
‘Round of Betting’ Explained
The dealer has dealt you and your opponents two cards each. They have then also laid out the flop (the first three community cards). You see that you have pocket Kings which is a strong start. The first round of betting occurs and you decide to call your opponents and see how the other cards unfold.
All other players call and that round comes to an end. Once the dealer has laid down the turn, the small blind decides to raise the stakes, the big blind folds, but you and player three decide to call and remain in the round. After this, the dealer lays down the fifth community card (the river). At this stage only you, the small blind and player three remain in the game. A king has gone down so you now have three of a kind. The small blind and player three both call, but you decide to raise. The small blind folds and player three calls your bet. Thus the final round of betting comes to an end and you and player three simply now reveal your cards to see who has won this hand.
