Basic Rules

Poker "At The Turn" Is played by Montana Rules. Montan rules limits each pot to $800. For a complete guide on Montana Rules for Poker - please search on the Internet.

The Lingo

The best way to learn Poker Lingo is to look it up on the Internet and learn the "Poker Terms." For example the first (1st) three (3) cards that are laid face up on the table is called "The Flop" - the next card that is delt from the top is a "Burn Card" - which nobody sees. The next card that is delt is called "The Turn" and it is the forth card that is turned face up on the table. The next card that is delt from the top of the deck, is another "Burn Card" and the last card that is delt and laid face up on the table is called "The River." 

Betting

When playing TEXAS HOLD'EM -"At The Turn" - The first (1st) betting takes place before the cards are delt. The first (1st) player to the left of the floating dealer marker places a small blind bet ($1), the second (2nd) player to the left of the marker places a big blind bet ($3). These are forced bets (ante), then two (2) cards are delt to each player and the player to the left of the big blind can either Call ($3), raise (increase their bet) or fold. After all the bets are placed, then "The Flop" is laid sown and another round of betting is made. Then the "Turn Card" is placed face up followed by another round of betting, last the "River Card" is placed face up amd the last round of betting is made.
