5 Poker Card Rules
Poker is a game which has undergone many changes over the years, from the basic set of rules to the vastly different rules that are in use today. While each country, each locality may have its own rules and set of rules to govern the game, the common sense of the majority of players has led to the adoption of a set of rules which is now the accepted norm for all players.
These are the five card poker rules that govern the game. They are the basic set of rules that everyone understands, and even though they may not be obvious to the uninitiated, even some players can follow them. Many players, both professional and amateurs, can grasp the rules of poker at least to a certain extent; they simply have to be able to understand the other four important rules. Even the most well-informed players will occasionally make mistakes as a result of the lack of expertise.
First, let us identify the five card poker rules, and see what they are. The first of these is the ‘standard card draw’ rule. This rule stipulates that the player who draws his cards first and then bets, wins. The second of these is the ’tilt’ rule, which states that the player whose hand is weaker than the dealer’s bets, wins.
The third of these is the ‘two pair’ rule, which states that the player with two cards in a row, instead of a straight, wins. The fourth of these is the ‘three card bluff’ rule, which states that, if the player agrees to fold, they lose the bet. The fifth of these is the ‘straight, kings, or flush’ rule, which states that when the dealer shows the two cards which form the straight, the player wins the bet on the basis of the card which forms the kings.
There are also three other rules, but they are seldom used in practice, because they are not as useful as the above three. These rules specify how the bets are to be placed, the value of the bets and the odds. One of these is the ‘six pack’ rule, which specifies that players cannot bet more than six cards. The last of these is the ‘high card’ rule, which states that the player has the right to bet whatever amount they want, regardless of the value of the bet.
The players in any poker game should know how to use these five rules, not just understand them. The ‘six pack’ rule is one of the most important, because the value of any bet depends upon the number of cards drawn by the player. If he draws two, then his bet is made of equal value. If he draws four, then his bet is half as much.
If he draws six, then his bet is two times as much as before. This is so because if he draws four, he can now bet three, if he draws four, then he can now get four times as much as before. So the ‘six pack’ rule, by limiting the number of bets that a player can make, makes the odds better. But the effect is temporary, because as soon as he wins the bet, his bet is again doubled.
