The player who does this is called an active player, but if a player doesn’t do the same is not able to stay in the game and it terms a drop or fold. There are many betting intervals in each deal, and the first player who bets is called a bet, the player who bets exactly the same as the first one identifies as a call, and the one who bets more than the previous identifies as raise. When each player has completed their betting turn and the turn has returned to the player who made the last raise, then the betting interval ends here.
