The next round of play comes when there is one card dealt face up. Now the player that has the highest up card makes the opening bet for the game, if this is not your card then you have to make a decision whether to call or raise to stay in the game or to fold if you want out of the game. After all of the bets are made the dealer deals another upcard to the players that are left at the table, and is followed by the second round of betting. This starts with the player with the highest upcard hand, now the player that has the highest hand has three choices they can either fold, check or bet. The rest of the players at the table can either Stay, Play, Fold or Raise. Next up the dealer again deals one card up to each remaining player, now there are three upcards and two hole cards.
The third round of betting goes exactly like the second round, and then the are two ore rounds of dealing and betting that follow. The seventh and final card will then be dealt face down. The final round of betting also works like the other except players can also choose to call instead of playing or staying. After all of the betting is completed the player with the highest hand with the upcards start to turn over their hole cards.
