Poker is a card game in which players try to make the best hand by betting chips into the pot. Each player is dealt five cards. The highest hand wins the pot.
Poker can be played with any number of players. The minimum ante is normally set to a certain amount. Each round of betting takes place between the cards being dealt. Once all the cards are dealt, the betting continues until all the players fold.
The best natural hand is a straight flush. A straight flush is all cards of the same suit. The ace can be high or low. The Royal Flush is a straight flush with a high ace.
Some variants of poker have specific wild cards. These cards can take any suit.
The lowest possible hand is seven five four three two. These hands are sometimes known as 6-4-3-2-A. The best natural hand is a straight flush with a high or low ace. If a hand has more than one five of a kind, the higher card will win the pot.
A hand with a pair of kings is not bad off the deal. A looser player is more likely to bluff. A bluff is a bet that a player believes is his or her best hand.
If a player folds, the player will receive no more cards. A player will then be discarded from the hand. He or she may have been trying to draw.
