Poker is a family of card games where players wager over their hand to win a pot. There are many different variations of the game, each with its own rules and deck configuration. In the most common form of poker, the winner is the player with the best hand.
One or more rounds of betting are involved in every poker game. A forced bet (also called the ante) is a part of most modern poker games. The bet is made to ensure that all players will be involved in the betting phase. Sometimes, the bet is blind, in which case all players must make a bet without seeing their cards. If the bet matches, the raiser may increase the bet.
In some poker variations, the pot is split between the hands with the highest and lowest cards. Some games, such as seven-card stud, require each player to have the best five-card hand. Others, such as draw poker, award the pot to the hand with the lowest cards.
Poker is played all over the world. It has become especially popular in Asia and South America. This is in part due to the use of televised poker shows during the turn of the millennium. However, most poker players prefer to play on their own. They place their bets in one round of play, and they then develop their hands throughout the next few rounds.
The first known form of poker was a game of twenty cards. Today, most of the games are played with a standard deck. Players are allowed to discard up to three cards. All but one player folds at the end of each round, and the remaining player collects the pot.
Several poker structures exist, including pot-limit, no-limit, and fixed-limit. Fixed-limit is a form of poker in which the amount bet is standardized. For example, if a player bets $2, the other players must match it. No-limit is similar, except that it allows the player to bet as much as he or she wants.
