How to Play Poker


Poker is a card game where players compete for a pot of money by making the best possible hand. There are a variety of rules that govern poker, but the core concept is that players bet into the pot before being dealt their cards. Then they show their cards and the player with the highest ranked hand wins the pot.

How Poker is Played

To play poker, you must first ‘ante’ a set amount (the amount varies by the game but our games usually start off with a nickel). Then you are dealt five cards and everyone has a chance to bet/check/raise/fold.

A player with a strong hand can bet a lot more aggressively than a new player who is just limping into the hand. This is because they want to build up the pot before they make a decision about their hand.

If you have a strong hand, it is important to read your opponent’s betting patterns. This will help you decide whether or not it’s worth to raise.

Be confident with your decision at the table – you will find that this will improve your overall poker game. This will also help you to win more money because you will have a better understanding of the strength of your own hands and the strength of your opponent’s hands.

Don’t limp into a hand without thinking it through – this is a common mistake among new players. This can send a lot of negative signals to your opponents and they will be less likely to call your bet.
