EXAMPLE THE BETTING INTERVAL
A betting interval among seven players 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, might proceed as follows.
Betting round 1
BETTING ROUND 1 The state of play after the first round of betting. Only player 3 has such a poor poker hands that he folds. The seven chips in the centre is the ante.
Betting round 2
The turn bet now returns to player 1.
Betting round 3
Here the betting interval ends, as all three players who retain an interest in the pot have equalized their stakes. The betting interval cannot end until all players in the pot have had an opportunity to bet.
The betting interval described might also be set out as follows, where the figures indicate the number of chips the player put in on each round and (in brackets) the running total of his contribution.
Three players – 1, 5, and 7 – retain an interest in the pot, having contributed six chips each, while the pot totals 25 chips.
BETTING ROUND 3 The three players remaining have all contributed six chips, so their stakes are equalized.
As mentioned on page, in some forms of poker, there is another option in addition to betting, calling, raising or folding- checking.
