All About Poker Hands
Poker is a family of complex card games where players bet over which hand is most appropriate according to the rules of that game. In poker, there are two types of playing: pure poker and variant poker. Pure poker is the same as bridge, no bluffing, and all other rules of poker apply to this type. The second kind is called variant poker. In this type of poker, you can use any poker strategy you like, including betting, but you must reveal your hand before the other players do.
In draw poker, the first two players are dealt five cards face down. Then, the player who has the most chips at the end is the “buyer” and the player who has the fewest chips is the “seller.” There are certain protocol rules in draw poker, such as when a player has to reveal his hand, the dealer will go through the cards and look for any of the following: an ace, a king, a queen, a jack, or a royal card. If any of these cards are present, the player with the most chips will get to keep his poker chips. If no cards are drawn, the chips are awarded to the seller.
In Texas Holdem poker, it is customary to finish the pot in the last betting round. A player finishes when he has sent all of his poker chips to the pot. He can stay there and wait for the person who has the fewest chips to leave. After the last betting round, the person with the most chips wins. If two players finish with the same number of chips, then the pot is split between them.
