How to place the flop, turn, and river

  1. Tap the poker table with your hand* and burn a card by placing the top card face down under the poker chips on the table. The purpose of tapping the table is to alert players that you are about to continue dealing the hand - any player who has not had an opportunity to act is expected to notify the dealer before the hand continues.
  2. Count off three cards from the top of the deck and place them face up a couple inches in front of you (or in front of the dealer's rack) on the table. There should be a space of 1/4 to 1/2 inch between each card.
  3. Tap the poker table with your hand and burn a second card by placing the top card face down under the previous burn card.
  4. Take one card off the top of the deck and place it face up to the right of the three flop cards.
  5. Tap the poker table with your hand and burn a third card by placing the top card face down under the previous burn card.
  6. Take one card off the top of the deck and place it face up to the right of the fourth card.

Things to avoid

Make sure you avoid placing the board cards in the wrong order. Players want to reconstruct hands and it is important to know the order that the cards appeared on the table. The fourth card (Turn) must be placed to the right of the board cards and the fifth card (River) must be placed to the right of the fourth card.

Avoid placing the flop cards one at a time - instead, reveal all three cards at the same time. If you reveal the flop cards one at a time, certain players might give off tells. Even though you might feel that this is the players own fault and should be allowed, it should not be allowed.

Avoid this!
