Poker

Poker is a card game that is played by betting on the cards. The player who has the best hand wins the pot.

Basics

The first step in playing poker is to deal the cards. The dealer deals the cards to each player one at a time, starting with the player on the left of the dealer.

Next, each player may bet, raise or fold his hand. When all players have bet or folded, the last betting round is over and all of the bets are gathered into a central pot.

Once the final betting round is over, the highest hand that does not have a pair wins the pot. If there are multiple high hands, the highest card is used to break ties.

A good poker strategy is to bet aggressively with your strong hands. This will allow the pot to grow larger and increase your chances of winning. However, make sure that you are being aggressive when it makes sense and not when it can hurt your game.
