The first round of betting has ended. Two dealers are left. Dennis has three cards, Brad has two, and Charley has one. Dennis has three cards and the two dealers have no aces. After the betting, they see that Dennis has the highest hand, a three-of-a-kind. After assessing each of their hands, they make their bets.
In each round of betting, each player receives two cards face-up and one card face-down. Then, during the betting interval, players reveal their hand and the winner is the player with the best hand. In poker, the best hand is the highest-ranking combination of cards that matches the five cards on the table.
In most games, the highest hand wins the pot. However, some variations may award the pot to the player with the lowest hand. In such cases, the player who bets the least may win the pot. In this case, the player who bets the most may be called a bluff. If he or she is dealt the lowest hand, the player who bets the least may win the pot.
In the event of a tie, the dealer may reshuffle the cards and deal them. The dealer may then pass the button clockwise. In live poker, the button is usually a plastic disk.
