The gamblers place bets once more and the last community card (known as the river) is shown. The last betting round ends by the showdown when all the players that are still in the game show their cards and the winner is chosen by the highest poker hand. As the basic poker card game rules state, every poker gambler is able to use any of his/her face down cards and any number of five exposed cards on the table to create the hand. In case of the ties the pot is split. If all community cards create the highest hand in the game the pot must be divided between all players.
