Large Folding Poker Table Top. Most games these days are played with a standard 52 card deck. The Ace ranks high except that it can also be used low in a "straight" or run of cards i. Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5. Some kind of tokens to bet with are required and conventionally these are round chips - sets of Poker chips are easily obtainable these days and vary from very cheap to extremely high quality sets of great value. A dealer chip called a "blind" is also usually used to indicate the current dealer or at Casino tables, to indicate who plays first.
Poker Objective Poker is totally a gambling game and unlike some other gambling games cannot really be played without stakes. The stakes do not need to be money - peanuts, sweets or matchsticks will work fine, although seasoned gamblers will sneer at anything other than serious stakes. The aim for a hand is to win by having the highest ranked hand of cards or else by continuing to bet that your hand is the highest until all the other players drop out.
The player who is left when all the others have dropped out or the player who has the highest ranked hand when the hands are shown wins the "pot" - all the money that has been bet during that hand. In the event of a draw, the pot is divided equally amongst players. Poker Scoring Hands There are nine ranking Poker hands. We list them below in ascending order: One Pair - 2 cards of the same value The hand with the higher value pair wins.
If they are the same, then the highest value card in the remaining 3 cards determines who wins. If they are also the same, the highest value card in the remaining 2 cards determines who wins and so on. Two Pairs - 2 different value pairs The hand with the highest value pair wins. If they are the same, then the value of the second pair determines who wins. If they are also the same, then the value of the remaining card determines who wins.
Three of a kind - 3 cards of the same value The hand with the higher matching 3 cards wins. The Straight - A run of 5 cards, regardless of suit The Straight that starts with the highest value card wins. The Flush - 5 cards of the same suit The hand with the highest value card wins or if the highest cards are the same, the value of the second highest cards determines the winner and so on. The Full House - 3 cards of the same value and 2 cards of the same different value The hand with the higher matching 3 cards wins.
Four of a kind - 4 cards of the same value The hand with the higher matching 4 cards wins. The Straight Flush - A run of 5 cards of the same suit The Straight Flush that starts with the highest value card wins. The Royal Flush A run of 5 cards of the same suit starting with a ten If a hand contains none of the ranking combinations above, then the highest card gives the value of the hand. General Poker Rules The dealer changes to the left each hand. The person to the right of the dealer cuts the cards after they are shuffled.
Ideally Poker is played with 5, 6 or 7 players. Bets are placed in front of the player. Crucially, in this case, the winning player's hand is not revealed so that the other players do not know if the player was bluffing or not. Poker Stakes The stakes played for in any Poker game are agreed at the beginning and vary widely. The following rules do not give any guidelines for the stakes but there are some common conventions regarding raising the stake.
General Poker Betting Limitation Strategies In a completely theoretical game, the stake might be doubled each time and usually the house rules permit this for a short number of raises. However, after the stake has doubled 3 or 4 times, it tends to be so large that doubling it further means many of the players will be forced out due to a lack of funds rather than anything to do with their hand.
So a historical way of avoiding this problem has been to say that after the stake has been raised 3 or 4 times, thereafter it is only allowed to raise it by the amount it was previously raised by. So for instance, the ante or first blind forced bet might be 1 chip, the straddle or second blind or Big Blind forced second bet is usually double - in our example 2 chips. The first raise would then be 4 chips, the second raise 8 chips but thereafter each raise would be 8 chips.
Texas Hold'em Betting Limitation Strategies There are a multitude of other betting regimes and limitations which can be confusing. To give some topical examples, following are the 2 main betting rules from the currently most popular variety of Poker - Texas Hold'em: Limit Hold'em Second forced bet big blind must be double the first forced bet small blind. Raises in the first two rounds of betting must equal the big blind Raises in the last 2 rounds of betting must be double the big blind No Limit Hold'em - Second forced bet big blind must be double the first forced bet small blind.
A Raise may be of any amount limited by the following constraints: It must be the same or greater than the big blind It must be the same or greater than the previous raise It must be the same or less than the number of chips the player has already bet.
Basic Draw Poker Preliminaries The player to the dealer's left bets a starting amount by putting down some chips. This is called "the Ante". The next players puts down a further initial bet - traditionally, double the ante. This is called "the Straddle". The value of the stake traditionally starts at 4 X the ante but this may vary according to the house rules.
Each player is dealt 5 cards. First Round of Betting The player to the left of the player who bet the Second Blind starts the first round of betting. Each player in succession can do one of 3 things: "Fold" - Throw in their cards and take no further part in the hand "Call" - Increase the bet in front of them to match the level of the player who last raised it.
After a player raises, if all the subsequent players either fold or call but do not raise the stake further, then no further raises may be made. At this point, some of the players may have dropped out and the remaining players will all have the current value of the stake in front of them.
The Draw Each player in turn, then requests to discard 1, 2 or 3 cards in exchange for replacement cards from the deck, if they wish - the objective being to improve the rank of the hand. Second Round of Betting The betting process then restarts with the first player to the dealer's left who has not yet folded.
In the second round of betting, until someone Raises, players may: "Fold" - Throw in their cards and take no further part in the hand "Check" - Stay in the game at the current stake level "Raise" - a player raises the stake by adding more to the bet in front of him If all players check, then play proceeds straight to the Showdown. Otherwise, as soon as someone raises the stake, subsequent players can only Fold, Call or Raise.
Betting ceases when, after a raise, all subsequent players either Call or Fold. The Showdown Once betting for the second round has ceased, if only one player remains in the game, that player wins the pot. The player's hand is not revealed to the other players.
In each betting interval, one player, as designated by the rules of the variant being played, has the privilege or obligation of making the first bet. This player and each player in turn after him must place in the pot the number of chips representing money , for which poker is almost invariably played to make his total contribution to the pot at least equal to the total contribution of the player before him.
When a player does this, he is said to be in the pot, or an active player. If a player declines to do this, he discards his hand and is said to drop or fold, and he may no longer compete for the pot. Before the deal, each player may be required to make a contribution to the pot, called an ante. In each betting interval, the first player to make a bet is said to bet, a player who exactly meets the previous bet is said to call, and a player who bets more than the previous bettor is said to raise.
In some variants, a player is permitted to check, which is to stay in without betting, provided no other player has made a bet in that betting interval. Since a player cannot raise his own bet, each betting interval ends when the betting turn has returned to the person who made the last raise or when all players have checked.
At the end of each betting interval except the last, dealing is resumed. There are three popular methods. In fixed-limit games, no one may bet or raise by more than the established limit. In draw poker the limit is usually twice as much after the draw as before—for example, two chips before the draw, four chips after. In stud poker the limit is usually twice as much in the final betting interval as in previous betting intervals. These respective forms of the game are described below.
In a fixed-limit game a limit is usually placed on the number of raises that may be made in any betting interval. In pot-limit contests, a player may bet or raise by no more than the amount in the pot at the time the bet or raise is made. When raising, the player may first put in the pot the number of chips required to call the previous bet and then raise by the number of chips in the pot. When pot limit is played, it is customary also to place a maximum limit on any bet or raise, regardless of the size of the pot.
This method most closely approximates the no-limit game. Other players having more chips may continue to bet, but their further bets go into one or more side pots in the manner decided among the players who contributed fully to the side pot. When a player drops out of any side pot, he drops out of the original pot as well, in effect surrendering his rights in the original pot to the player whose later bet he did not call. Thus, there may be different winners of the main pot and various side pots.

This is of course for the players to agree. Five Card Stud is often played as a fixed limit game with the following arrangements. Sometimes Five Card Stud is played with the fifth card dealt face down, so that in the last betting round each player still has only three cards showing. In this case the final betting round will be begun by the same player who began the previous round. Five Card Stud can be played low lowest hand wins. This game is sometimes called Lowball, though this name is also used for Draw Poker played for low.
Any of the low poker ranking systems can be used. In American casinos ace-to-five ranking would be most usual. Many home poker players prefer ace-to-six ranking. Deuce-to-seven ranking would also be possible. In the formal casino version, the player with the highest card showing Ace counting as low starts the first round of betting with a compulsory bring-in bet.
Subsequent betting rounds are begun by the player with the lowest hand showing. Since a pair is not a good hand in this game, a player with a pair showing is not entitled to place a big bet. The remaining rules are the same as in ordinary Five Card Stud, as described above, except that in the showdown the lowest hand wins.
The deal and betting are mostly the same as in ordinary five card stud. Some play that in high-low games, a pair showing does not give players the option of a big bet or raise. In the formal version of this game, at the showdown, the pot is split equally between the highest and lowest hands, the odd chip going to the high hand if the amount cannot be divided exactly by two. Any of the possible low hand ranking methods can be used - see low hand ranking on the poker hand ranking page.
After the final betting round each player has to declare either "high", "low". This can be done either in sequence around the table or simultaneously - see the section on declaration methods on the poker betting page. Even if it were allowed it would be unusual, unless perhaps you were playing ace-to-five ranking uncommon in home games and a player had or pretended to have an A straight which is good for both high and low.
In the showdown, the highest hand among the players who have declared "high" shares the pot with the lowest of the players who have declared "low". See the section on the showdown in split pot games on the poker betting page for further details and variations. This home poker variant is exactly like Five Card Stud High-Low except that after the fifth card is dealt, each player in turn has the opportunity to "buy" a card.
The player discards one card and the dealer deals a replacement card, face up if the discarded card was face up but face down if the discarded card was face down. A player who buys a card must pay an agreed amount to the pot - for example one large bet. After everyone has had a chance to buy, the final betting round, the declaration and the showdown follow.
