So, after you place your bet, the player and the dealer are dealt two cards each but player’s cards are turned face up, while dealer’s cards are face down. There is a special term for these cards, they are known as pocket cards.
Then, three cards, known as the flop, are dealt and the player has to make a decision whether to Raise or Fold. If the player believes dealer’s hand is weaker, they have to Raise but if the cards dealt are of low value, they’d better fold.
