As the game is more popular in online mode, 2 to 9 players can play this game but mostly the game is set for 6 players, for simplicity and understanding of the basics we will discuss the rules of the game based on 6 players on board.
The player with the dealer button is considered as the ‘button’.
Two players on the left side of the button are considered the ‘big blind’ and ‘small blind’. These players are required to put a blind bet before any card is dealt. The big blinds have 2x stakes compared to the small blind.
The player next to the big blind is called ‘under-the-gun’, they are the first ones to decide whether to fold, call or raise the bet placed by the big blind. Now, all players must place the same bets as the big blind in the pot after the decision of the under-the-gun player.
The flop is a set of three cards, now the first player to play next must be the left-hand side player from the dealer, they can be either BB or SB. if both, BB and SB pre-fold the cards then UTG can bet or check.
Now the game will begin anti-clockwise with the next player to the UTG will decide to raise or check the cards.
