If you have never played this game, you might want to take a step back to actually learn the ways of poker before jumping in head first into a game putting your money on the line. There’s a few rules to it. There’s numerous types of poker, however the most popular one is Texas-style, where each player is dealt two cards, and 5 cards are gradually placed in the center of the table.

The aim of the game is to combine the two cards you have at hand with the 5 cards placed at the center of the table. The 5 cards are placed on the table over a span of 4 rounds, first round with everyone seeing their initial two cards at the start, and placing the starting bets, where each player gets to choose whether they call the starting bet with chips, (which are placed at the center of the table and are called the pot), raise (by betting even more money) or fold, (meaning they throw out their cards and wait for the next game).

Once starting bets are settled, three cards from the deck are placed on the table (this is called the flop), then another round of bets comes in, here, if no one raises before you, you have the option to check, meaning you leave the pot as it is and carry on to the next round. If someone bets after you however, another rotation is required to balance out the pot before the next round starts. Once bets are settled, another card is placed in the middle of the table, this is called the turn. Next comes another rotation of check / raise / fold, and then comes the river, where the fifth card is placed on the table and the final rotation occurs.

Once the rotation is finished and the pot is balanced out by all the players who remain in the game, called all bets and have not folded, everyone’s cards are shown, and the player with the best hand wins. The best hand is determined by a list of card combinations ranked from worst to best, as shown in the image below.
