Flop games are poker variations played with community cards all players can use to make the best possible hand.
Flop games are one of the three main types of poker games, with the other two being draw and stud games. The most popular variations of flop games are Texas Hold’em and Omaha.
In flop games, every player receives their private hole hands at the start of every game. These cards are face down, and only the receiving player can know what they are.
For example, in Texas Hold’em, every player receives two hole cards. After the first betting round, the dealer puts three community cards on the table.
After another betting round, the dealer puts up an additional card, and after one more betting round, another community card. So, in this particular flop game example, there are five community cards.
