Poker Dictionary – Boardcards

Have you ever wondered how vast the poker vocabulary is? Let us tell you, it’s huge. There is always something new to learn every day. And knowing and understanding these poker terms will not only help you ace your game but also help you show off your expertise while having a poker conversation. 

In our poker glossary section, we equip you with the meaning, usage, and significance of each poker term. In this article, we will discuss the term ‘boardcards.’ 

What are boardcards?

The cards that are dealt face-up at the center of the table are known as boardcards. The boardcards are shared by all players on the table, unlike hole cards that are private to every player. Players can make their best hand using a combination of hole cards and boardcards. Boardcards are also commonly known as ‘community cards,’ or simply ‘the board.’

In Texas Hold’em games, five boardcards are dealt, while in seven-card stud games, four boardcards are dealt. Boardcards are an important aspect of a poker game, however, not all variants of poker make use of these cards. Boardcards are most commonly used in Hold’em, Omaha games, and certain types of stud games.

In a Texas Hold’em game, all the players are dealt with two hole cards each. After a pre-flop round of betting, AJ5 opens up on the flop. A post-flop round of betting takes place and the dealer reveals 9 on the turn. Another round of betting takes place and the river opens to a K. The flop, turn and river together, i.e., AJ59K are called boardcards.
