Do you want to learn how to play poker? If you have been playing the game of poker. For some time then you would probably understand the challenges involved and would be well equipped to understand the game that much better.
You might think that you know what poker is, but most players feel that they do not. To be able to make you understand more, let us first look at the main concepts of poker.
Poker refers to a betting game which has become extremely popular since its first inception. It is a variation on the ‘hands’table’ game, as it is also referred to. In this game there are four players that are seated around a table and there is a set number of chips on the table which is called the deck. This is where the ‘stakes’ of the game is being determined. The stakes is the amount of money that one player has to throw away in order to win the game. The idea is to throw away a certain number of chips each time they lose a game. There are certain rules that govern the amount of chips a player can have and the number of hands they can play.
Depending on the kind of game you want to play, you will have different rules with which you have to abide. For instance, in Omaha, the chips that one throws away cannot be more than two-thirds of the total amount of chips on the table. The number of hands that a player has determined the ‘strength’ of the player and the other aspects of the game. The most basic form of poker is the Texas Holdem. This is a ‘no limit’ poker game where all players start with twenty chips and the goal is for the player with the most chips to win. This game is played by using the same strategy as in Omaha except that there are three separate ‘lanes’.
In the no limit holdem, players are dealt seven cards in a row and it is up to them to select from them according to their hand size. The starting hands in the no limit holdem include Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks and Deuces. Once the player has selected the right hand they are dealt the remaining cards in the same sequence. After the last card is dealt out, the player now needs to choose the best hand among the remaining cards in the sequence to win the pot.
In Texas holdem there is another variation called the Omaha Hi/Lo where a player will have to face off against an opponent in a series of games. The rules of this game are the same as the Texas Holdem except that players will now be dealt a total of twelve cards in a row instead of seven. The objective of the game is for the player with the best hand to win a predetermined number of chips in each game. The player that wins the pot at the end of the series wins the pot.
The next variation is the Texas Hold em where the stakes are raised slightly. In this game, the players are dealt a whole deck of cards in this game the goal is to eliminate your opponents from the table before the end of the game. The starting hand in this version is still the same as in the Omaha game. The amount of chips is now twenty and it is up to the player to choose from one to seven cards of their deck. The players now need to discard as many cards from their deck as they can before getting to the starting position.
