The Basics Of Poker

In most Poker games, each player is betting that their hand is higher than everyone else’s. In these standard games, a “forced bet” is placed by one of the players to get the ball rolling and then the betting continues around the table in a clockwise direction. Each player gets a turn to match or raise the current bet or fold entirely, until everyone has placed their bets on the table. If there is only one player who doesn’t fold then they collect all the chips or bets and may choose to show the table their winning hand.

The fun comes into the mix when people try to fool the other players into thinking they have the most prominent hands, when in actual fact they don’t. This is called bluffing and is a common playing technique amongst many Poker players.

Players are looking for the ultimate hand of cards, with the elusive Royal Flush being the most sought after commodity in poker playing. Other popular hands include a Straight Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Flush, Straight, Three of a Kind, Two of a Kind, Two Pair, One Pair and High Cards. All result in their own level of popularity, depending on what other hands they are matched up against.
