Press the # key at any time to bring up the Pause Menu for help topics. Press the * key for settings in the Options menu. Gameplay in each round proceeds as follows: blinds are placed at the start of each game; two cards are dealt to each player face down; players may call, raise or fold; three community cards (useable by all players) are dealt face up in the middle of the table (The Flop); a second betting round takes place; a fourth community card is dealt face up (The Turn); a third betting round takes place; a fifth and final community card is dealt face up (The River); the final betting round takes place; and, finally, remaining players compare hands to determine the winner for that round.
