Poker is a game that become engrained in the persona of Americans. Many millions of people play this game every day at casinos across the country and around the world. There are quite a few different variants of the game, but they all hold true to the same premise: betting on who has the better hand.
The most popular forms of this game today are the Texas Hold 'em and 5 or 7-card Stud variants of it. In Texas Hold 'em, each player is dealt two cards face down followed by a round of betting. Then the dealer will deal three cards face-up in the center of the table -- these are community cards that can be used by everyone. This first round of community cards are called the "flop".
After the flop, there is another round of betting, followed by a fourth community card being dealt. This is called "the turn" or "fourth street". Then another round of betting, followed by the final community card being dealt, and finally... the last round of betting. After this, all players show their hands, and a winner is determined.
