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.
