Easy Instructions On How To Play Poker

Latest Casino News 16 Sep , 2019 0

It only takes a few minutes to pick up the basics of poker and start your career learning the finer elements of the great card game. In this article, I'll get you started straight away.

Poker is a fascinating game. Did you know that it is the card game where skill plays the greatest part? Even better than Blackjack. Anyway, here are the basics of the game.

The most common type of poker is Texas Holdem. There are other less popular ones like Omaha, but most people when they say "poker" mean Texas Holdem.

The aim of the game is to have the best hand at the end. I'll come to the types of hands later but you have probably heard of things like "two pairs" or "full house" already.

First, everybody gets two of their own cards. Then the dealer will put five "community" cards in the center of the table that are shared by everyone. So from a total of seven cards you can make your own hand.

But the best bit about poker is that the community cards are slowly revealed and betting rounds take place. So the longer you want to stay in the game, the more money people will challenge you to put up. If someone raises and places a lot of money down for everyone else to match to stay in - are they holding good cards or just bluffing? This is the beauty of poker!

You don't win every game of poker. Every time you fold, you lose a little money but at least you live to fight another day and if you play well, then your winning pots should far exceed the small cost of participating and folding.
