Poker Games – A Pot-Limit Game

Poker is an evergreen family of casino-type card games where players place wagers over on which hand they think is best based on the rules of that particular game. There are basically two different types of poker, seven-card stud, and holdem, and you can choose one or the other or even mix and match the two. Seven-card stud is the most basic poker variant, and holdem is the most popular version.


In seven-card stud, players start out with a specific number of chips (called starting chips) and may acquire more chips as the game progresses. Once all the players have passed the pre-flop, each player has a “pot”, also called the “wild card”. The goal in poker is to create the strongest hand possible, since the wild card may be used for any combination of any number of cards from the five of a kind, face up, straight up, flush, and either high or low. If a player bets and gets a “low” or a “high” card, they lose the bet and must replace it with another bet of the same value.

If a player finishes the betting round with a “high” or a “low”, they get to keep their chips. If a player finishes the betting round with “a” or “a – ” they get to switch places and the pot is split among them. No-limit is a variant of seven-card stud that allows the player to begin the betting with any number of chips, and ends after that with any combination of a high, low, and a no-limit card. No-limit is usually played with a minimum betting interval of around four to six chips.
