Each table can sit up to a maximum of five players. There is a dealer button, and a big blind and a small blind. The big blind has to post a big bet, and the small blind a small bet. There are generally no antes.
Each player is dealt five cards face down. The betting starts from the player to the right of the big blind and moves clockwise around the table. Each player has the option to call, raise or fold. Once this betting round is complete, each player still in the hand has the chance to discard 1-5 of their cards, or to stand pat and discard zero. After the players have discarded and drew new cards, there is one more betting round, and then the cards are turned over, and the best hand wins.
