Everything You Need to Know About Poker
Poker has become one of the most popular games around the world. Poker is essentially a family of card games where players put wagers over which hand they think will win in a number of ways similar to the rankings where they see a number of hands ranking from ace to king. Players will play a variety of hands at different times, but at the end of the game all hands are totaled and the player with the most hands at the end wins. The first player to finish all their cards at once is called the winner. The best part about Poker is that you don’t have to know how to play Poker in order to enjoy it.
Poker games are played across several tables with two or more people. When a person begins a game they will choose a table where they will lay down at least one card to deal with the poker, such as Jack or Ace, to start the game. Then another person will lay down another card to act as the ‘low card’ to begin the betting. Once that person has a sufficient amount of money in the pot to start the betting they will draw poker from the pot and the first person to have the most chips at the end of the game is the winner.
Poker is played with a variety of decks ranging from regular decks of cards to a special playing card deck. A standard deck of cards consists of fifty two cards. There are no jokers in a poker deck, nor do the suits on the cards change over time as in the case of a joker. Standard decks are usually used as the base for Draw Poker, where there is an additional betting deck where the player can place their bets, whether to stay in or to fold, and add the ‘extra’ to their bankroll. In Draw Poker, each player starts off with ten round chips and can later add to their bankroll by betting, folding, or drawing from the deck.
