How to Play Poker
When playing poker, the most common type of poker you will see is the five-card draw. The five-card draw is one of the oldest forms of poker and can be extremely exciting for those that play it.
Poker was originally known as checkers. If you ever played the game of checkers, you know how much fun it is. Basically, there are five players on a side and they are each dealt four cards, face down.
The first player to act and make their bet has the option of a three-bet or not. They can decide to 3-bet, or they can make a raise. If they make the three-bet, they place one card face up in front of them. This means that the opponent must choose one of these cards.
They must choose between the two to be revealed. If the player does not have any cards left in their hand, then they must fold. In the event of a fold, the next player takes their three-bet and the game continues until there are five players left.
Once the five players have been determined, the player’s hand is placed before them. In the event of a player being dealt the same cards they have been dealt to make a blind fold, they take their bet.
Once all five players have made their bets, the dealer’s turn occurs. In the event of a tie, the dealer must deal a new hand, however in the event of a tie, the turn is dealt by the dealer after the second player in line. The dealer now takes the cards out of their hands and deals three of the face up cards to each player.
A good hand that is passed is dealt face up to the third player in line. The third player then either bets or raises depending on the players’ hands.
