In Texas Hold’em, each player has two cards dealt to them, and then share five community cards. These five community cards, however, do not all get dealt at the same time. There are rounds of betting at certain intervals during the deal. After the first two cards are dealt to each player, there is a round of betting. Then, three of the five community cards are dealt at one time on the board. This is what’s known as the "flop" – the first three cards being dealt on the board. The fourth card is called the "turn", and the final, fifth card is known as the "river".


Preflop, it folds to the small blind who raises to $10 and we call in the big blind with QJ. Since all of the preflop action is complete, the flop is then dealt, QQ9.
