Each player antes a fraction of the small bet. Before the cards are dealt. In a $2/$4 limit game, for example, the antes are usually $0.30.

Three cards dealt to each player. Including two face-down “hole cards” and one face-up “door card”.

The player with the lowest Door Card must start the betting with the Bring-In.

Which is usually about half the size of the small bet. Alternatively the player may complete the size of the small bet.
