Terms You Should Know

Before you play you should look through all the rules and special game terms. There are some of them bellow:

Ante – the minimum amount you must gamble to get into the action of the game.

Blinds – money (generally in chip form) put on the table before the cards are dealt; there are typically two blinds (called the “small” and the “big”) and ensure money is being wagered with each hand; blinds rotate from player to player with each new deal.

Call – when a new wager has been placed, a “call” indicates that player’s willingness to match the raised amount.

Check – if no new wager has been made and the player doesn’t wish to raise, they may “check”.

Raise – the player wishes to increase the table bet.
