Texas Holdem Poker usually uses a dealer-button to indicate the theoretical
dealer of each hand. After current hand is completed, the button moves to
the next player clockwise as with standard poker rules. Now this player is
considered as "the dealer" for current hand. As a rule a single
deck of cards is used, consisting of 52 cards excluding the jokers.
If the active pot is $200 and the first player to act in the round bets $150
and the next player calls $150, the third player has a maximum eligible total
bet of $800. The $800 total is made up of the $150 call and $650 raise.
The $650 max raise portion is equal to the pot of $200 + first player's $150
+ second player's $150 + his own call of $150.
