Community cards

These are the cards that every player at the table can use to make the best five card hand possible, in combination with their hole-cards.

There are three stages in which the community cards are dealt, with each stage being followed by a round of betting. In order, these are known as 'the flop', 'the turn' and 'the river'.

If the pot is won by a player at any particular juncture, the community cards cease being dealt, the hand ends, and a new one ensues.
