  1. Action that takes place after hole cards have been dealt but before the communal flop is dealt.

Where to Find Preflop Action

In games of Texas Hold 'em and Omaha.


In a community card game, the round of betting following the deal but preceding the flop is called the 'preflop action'. When you hold two cards, or four cards if you're playing Omaha, and there isn't a communal board yet, you are still in the preflop phase.
