The players are in a fixed seating order around the table (even in a virtual environment the set of players is referred to as the table). The dealer button rotates around in a clockwise fashion, as do betting actions. Betting always begins with the first to act, which in most games is the first active player following the button (in stud games, which have face-up cards, it is usually the player with the highest ranked cards showing). Betting proceeds around the table, involving all active players, but does not end at the last active player.
