The rules of poker

The game is designed to be played by anywhere between two and 10 players. The dealer distributes face-down cards to each player. Following the completion of the distribution, the betting rounds commence. Two players (often seated on the dealer’s left) must make forced bets (often called blinds). This is done to stimulate more energetic and vigorous play. After the blinds are posted, the first betting round commences. Typically, betting rounds conclude when all players have either called (the act of matching the wager) or discarded their hands.
If more than one player remains after the initial betting round, three face-up cards are delivered (this event is known as the flop). These cards are required to form hands and can be utilized by all players (they are known as “community cards”). If more than one player remains, a new card is dealt, and this is referred to as the turn. After the turn, another round of betting commences. The last community card, known as the river, is dealt if required. The river is followed by another betting round, and if two or more players are seeking the bank, the reveal happens. Poker hands (or combinations) are comprised of five community cards and two face-down cards held by the player. When the final wager is announced, all players holding cards begin to disclose them.
There are two winning strategies in poker. To acquire the strongest hand or to place a wager that cannot be matched, forcing opponents to discard their hands.
