Poker Betting and Game-Play

In most poker games you begin by placing an ante bet of some relatively small amount. All of the money is placed collectively in the middle, creating what is called the pot. The player holding the best hand at the end of the betting wins the pot

Poker betting terminology

Check - a bet of zero that does not forfeit interest in the pot Bet (or Raise) - a non-zero bet greater than the preceding bet that all later players must at least match to not forfeit interest in the pot Call - a non-zero bet equal to the preceding bet that maintains a player's interest in the pot Fold - a surrender of interest in the pot in response to another player's bet, ante and all bets are immediately lost and player is out of the hand

Betting usually proceeds in a circle until each player has either called all bets or folded. Different poker games have various numbers of betting rounds interspersed with the receipt or replacement of cards.

The above explanation has excluded talk of wild cards for the most part because they are rarely used in casinos or online casinos. Wild cards are often used in home poker games though, and they impart an extra hand to the game: the five of a kind. Most games rank five of a kind above a straight flush, others choose to place it between four of a kind and a straight flush. Of course the wild cards also carry confusion when two players hold the same hand made up of different wild cards. The standard rules of poker do not distinguish between these hands, its up to you. Most players feel it rightful to rank whichever hand is closest to the natural version, or uses less wild cards.
