The river, actually, is the last card inverted up. The allowed actions are the same as the mentioned above. The players’ actions always depend on the rivals’ decisions. The river is practically the last bet cycle. At this moment if a player bet and someone else pay for it (i.e. set the poker chips in the middle of the table), there is a real culmination. Both players turn their cards on the table. The gamer with the hardest cards win the game.

If a player bet concrete amount during the game and no one pay for it, so he/she wins the whole amount by the moment. This situation is so-called “pot”. This player is able to turn his/her cards on the table or to muck (i.e. hide) them.

When the last player drops out, the game ends and the prize will be divided between the winners.

Its position is called “under the gun”. When it is your turn, you can choose what to do: to call, raise or fold. If you are at the small blind, you already have bet half of the needed amount to see the cards. If you are at the big blind, you have bet the whole amount you need, with the exception of cases in which the poker gamer before your turn has raised the bet.
