In poker, players place bets using chips. For games with seven or more players, poker chips should be provided. Poker chips are divided into five different colors. White chips are the lowest value, and red chips are worth five whites. Blue chips are worth two, four, or five reds, respectively. Players “buy in” to the game by purchasing chips. Usually, each player buys into the game for the same amount. When the pot is filled, the winner is determined.
The IDNPoker network opened its doors in 2010 in Cambodia. Though the network was initially slow to gain traction, it eventually surpassed the largest networks in the world, reaching the second spot in the PokerScout ranking in June 2019. The company, which has over 20,000 daily connections, focuses primarily on the Asian market, and does not advertise to an international audience. The IDNPoker website is fully translated into English, and there are many games available round the clock. Multi-tabling is not allowed.
The maximum amount of chips that can be bet is the pot limit. This limit should be high enough to prevent players from accumulating too many chips. A player who raises may count his or her raise as part of the pot. However, a player may raise by up to 14 chips, if the player calls the raise. Once the pot limit is high enough, the betting can be very profitable. But players must make sure they know the limits and can afford to lose more than they bet.
