There are many variations of poker such as Texas Hold’em, ‘Omaha and Razz, but they all share the same basic rules. All poker games involve bets made on the strength of their hand and they all have a “flat” in which end these episodes. The player with the best, or the only one left when everyone else leave, wins the pot.
In some games, the pot is split between the highest hand and the lowest. These games include Omaha 8 and Stud 8. In Razz, and 2-7 Single Draw and 2-7 Triple Draw the other hand, the pot is awarded to the player at the end of the episodes, it has the lowest hand.
All poker games have a forced bet. Stud and Draw games, it is generally an “ante”, which is paid to each hand. In Hold’em games, we have a “blind”, which is paid by each player when it is your turn. Some Hold’em games, in addition to the blind, also provide the ante.
All poker games involve one or more betting rounds in which the player can choose between the following options:
When no one has bet before it is a player’s turn, he has the option of checking, ie stay in the hand without betting. The action then goes to the person who follows clockwise. If the entire table checks, the betting round is ended.
Another option that the player has when no one before him has bet is to bet himself. Any player who follows who fired a choice of folding, calling or raising. A player may not check after another bet. Folding means giving up any chance of winning the pot, but it also means that the player must not bring into play other chips. A player who folds is excluded from the action until the next hand. To call a bet is to put in the pot the same amount of chips made by those who have bet on. If it is the last round of betting, the person who bet shows their point to what he called. Raise by putting chips into the pot additional, so that those who made the bet should add more chips to stay in the hand. If a player bets and another raises, the first has the opportunity to fold. When the betting rounds are completed, if the plate there are more players, we are witnessing the “showdown” in which the remaining players show their cards. The person with the best point wins the pot. If at the end of a round of betting has been one player in the pot (because everyone else has folded), they automatically win the pot.
The poker games almost always adopt the rule of “chips at the table,” according to which only the chips on the table can be used during a hand. A corollary of the rule of “chips at the table” is the rule of ‘”all-in”: this requires that a player should not be forced to get out of hand if you do not have enough chips to cover the bet or raise by an opponent. If all a player’s chips in the pot, he is considered to be all-in and additional bets and raises must be carried out by others to form a side pot. the all-in player does not participate in this side dish, but it can win the pot when he put the chips.
