Poker is a family of comparing card games, with variations ranging from simple to very complex. All games include a round of betting and the winner is the player with the best hand, according to the rules.
There are three main structures for poker: fixed limit, no limit, and pot-limit. Fixed-limit requires players to make standardized raises and bets. Pot-limit allows players to bet as much or as little as they want, up to a set amount.
Some poker games may award the pot to the player with the lowest hand, while others split the pot between the highest and the lowest hands. Other variations do not consider flushes or straights.
The earliest known forms of poker were played with 20 cards. Today, most games of poker use a standard deck.
A typical poker game consists of several rounds of betting. Cards are dealt face down and face up, with the dealer handling each hand. Players are allowed to discard a number of cards, which they can replace with new cards drawn from the top of the deck.
Each player in the hand can then match or raise the previous bet, or fold. The bets are then gathered into a central pot.
If a player makes a forced bet, he is obligated to show his cards. This type of bet is also called a blind bet, and is a part of most modern poker games.
