         GENERAL INFO
    o---------------------o
    Here are some terminology that you'll hear during poker games
    
    Flop, Turn, and River - There are 5 cards that are put onto the table.
    The first three cards are referred to as the Flop, the 4th card is referred to
    as the Turn and the last final card is referred to as the River.
    
    Showdown - when all five cards on the board are turned over, they are compared
    to the card in the players hand to determine the winner of the pot.
    
    Blinds - there are small blinds and big blinds. What this mean is that left of
    the dealer puts money on the table equal to half the minimum bet then the
    player to the left of that person puts up a big blind which is equal to the
    minimum bet. The role of dealer and blinders rotate around the table.
    
    Opening Bet - After the Big Blind, players ante up and if the players raise the
    bet, they continue until a player checks which occurs if no one else raises.
    
    Pot - this is the amount of money that is available to win. The more money bet
    into the pot, the more the winnings are.
