If you want to play texas hold'em. Players put in the ante. Then you deal 2 cards to each player deal 3 cards in the middle face up for everyone bet, deal one more card bet, then deal the last card and bet.
It's been a year since I learned poker. At first I just reviewed the Hand Ranks from High Card to Royal Flush and memorized them so I can't be lost on the game. I read Poker Books like: Harrington on Holdem and Mike Caro's Poker Tells.
