Poker is a French card game in which several cards are dealt to each player (the number of cards depends on the game type) Keeping all them hidden or part of them, each player must make the best possible combination of cards and bet according to the hand. There is an initial bid that players are increasing as the game progresses. Finally, the cards are shown in the "showdown" and this one who has the best hand wins all money bet.
There is a big variety of poker games, with very different rules and ways to play. Let's review the main types of game:
In this game, also known just as Holdem, 2 hole cards are dealt to each player and 5 cards are discovered ("board") in the center of the table. Each player combines the best hand using the available cards on the table.
This game is very similar to Holdem but instead of 2 cards each player receives 4. Having more cards is easier to make better hands. However, it is obligatory that each player plays with at least 2 of the 4 cards he has received in the beginning.
In this game 5 cards are distributed covertly per player and a round of betting is done. After these bets, you can discard a maximum of 4 of initial 5 cards and make changes. As always, it wins the best combination of cards. This is the classic type of all poker forms.
