After the player makes the “call” bet the Player is then afforded another card dealt face up in a designated area in front of that player. This now gives the player a Five (5) card poker hand.

After the player makes the “River” bet, One (1) card will be dealt face up in the center of the gaming table, this card is called the River card and is used by all players still remaining in the game by making all appropriate bets in the game.
