Definition of Dealer's choice
If you are in a Dealer's Choice game, the player on the button (the dealer) will choose the poker variant that will be played. Obviously, the player will have to announce loudly the variant of his choice before dealing the cards. Once the hand is finished, the button will move in its usual direction and the next player to be dealer will choose the variant.
