Basic Poker Rules

What is Poker?

As with most games, poker's aim is to win. Poker is testing your craftsmanship and strategic skills, whether you are playing to have fun or to make money.
There are many variations in poker games, but they all follow the same basic set:
· Players contribute to a central pot that contains virtual chips or chips that represent real money.
· The cards are dealt to the players (one "hand"), all or some of which are hidden.
· Bets are placed during betting rounds based on the value of the bets.
· After completing betting rounds, the player with the strongest hand wins - or the last remaining player to play, while the rest of them folded!
Regardless of the kind of poker you want to play, it is crucial to understand the deck and learn the ranking of the hands.

The Deck

The deck consists of 52 cards. The leaves are divided into four "colors", each with a 13 value.
The Four Colors

All colors have the same value. This means that no color overrides any other color.

The classification of 13 values

In poker, the highest value card is Ace and the lowest value card is 2 (Duplex). However, Ace can also be used as a weak sheet to form the 5-4-3-2-Ace.

Ranking of the hands

The ranking of the hands remains constant irrespective of the type of poker game you are playing.
In short, a poker hand consists of five cards. Poker hands belong to some class, such as the straight, the flush or the double pair. The player with the highest ranking hand wins.

Royal Flush (Royal Flush)

Flushing is a flush in Ace.

Straight Flush

The straight flush is a five-pointed straight in color.

Four of a Kind - Quads

Four or four cards are four cards of equal value.

Full House or Full Boat

The plume contains three cards of one value and a pair of another value.


The flush is five cards in color.


Five cards of successive value. Each possible combination of a straight contains either a five or a tenth.

Three of a Kind - Set

Three cards of equal value.

Two Pair (Double Pair)

The double pair is two cards of the same value and two other cards of equal value but different from the other pair.

Pair (Couple)

The pair are two cards of equal value.

High Card:

The hand with the highest paper wins.

Some games are called Hi / Lo games (such as Seven Card Stud Hi / Lo and Omaha Hi / Lo), because in order to win the pot, you should not only take into account the above mentioned hand rankings Hi), but also the lowest hand (Lo). In this case, the pot is dealt to the two hands that they win: high and low.
Explanations for the high hands were given above. Low is a hand that contains five different cards of lower or equal value with 8. Example: Ace-2-4-7-8. offers two games in which the pot is shared between the best high and the best low hand: Omaha Hi / Lo and the 7 Card Stud Hi / Lo variant. Hi / Lo games are played with a "8 qualifier" for the weak hand where a player must have five single cards less than eight to win the pot's low share.
Straights and flops do not count for the low hand, while Asians are considered smaller cards. Hands with five cards of equal value in their combination equally share the pot, regardless of the color.
In Hi / Lo games, as played at, the best possible low hand is the straight at the pedal, also known as a wheel or bicycle. In case two or more players have wheels / bikes, then they share the low pot odds. All wheels and bikes are of the same value regardless of color.

Wheel - Bicycle

In the event that a goal does not succeed in combining five different cards of less than or equal to eight, then there is no low hand and only the strongest hand is taken into account to determine the winner. There will be only one winner and will not share the pot.

Betting Rules

Poker with Limit

In poker games with a limit, the amount you are allowed to bet is limited to a certain amount. This limit refers to the name of the poker game ($ 3 / 6, $ 20 / 40, etc.).
Therefore, if you play, for example, in a game "with a limit of $ 1 / 2", this means that the minimum bet will be:

  • Pre-flop (before the flop): $ 1
  • On the flop (after having shared the first three cards): $ 1
  • On the turn (after the fourth community card is opened): $ 2
  • In the river (after the fifth and final community card is opened): $ 2
Note that you are not allowed to bet a smaller amount than the big blind amount. In addition, all raises must be made by raising bet amounts.
For example, in a game with a limit of $ 1 / 2, raises, the allowed number of which is four of the first bet, will be as follows:

  • At pre-flop: $ 1, $ 2, $ 3 up to $ 4
  • On the flop: $ 1, $ 2, $ 3 up to $ 4
  • On the turn: $ 2, $ 4, $ 6 up to $ 8
  • On the river: $ 2, $ 4, $ 6 up to $ 8

Poker No Limit

In this type of game there is no limit to the maximum bet amount you can make on any betting round. However, there is a minimum stake that is equal to the value of the big blind.
The minimum amount of raise must be at least equal to the previous bet or the previous raise in the same round. For example, if the first player who buys a bet wins $ 10 then the second player must raise a minimum of $ 10 (total bet amount of $ 20). There is no maximum raise limit: you can raise as much as you like. However, if you want to "see" a bet but you do not have chips to cover it, then you will play "your turn". In this case you can only win the share of the pot covered by your chips.

Pot Limit Poker

Pot Limit Poker is the most popular variation of poker in Europe. It looks quite like poker without limits, but it has some basic differences.
In poker with a pot limit, players can bet any amount they want between the amount corresponding to the blind and the amount corresponding to the pot. The pot includes the total amount of all bets and raises made during the current round.
For example: The pot at the center of the table contains $ 100. In a round that follows, a player bets $ 20 and each of the next two players "sees" the bet of $ 20. The fourth player could say "in" for the $ 20 bet and then raise a maximum of $ 180. This raise is equivalent to the pot's $ 100, the first bet of $ 20, the next two instances of $ 20 each, and the player's $ 20 "in", the total sum of which raises $ highs 180. Play some games for practice and you'll soon get acquainted with the calculations!

Bets and Bets per Table

Definition of pre-purchase

A buy-in is the amount of money a player pays to participate in a poker game. All real money games require the player to pay a minimum pre-pay amount before joining a table.

Minimum and maximum pre-purchase amount

Poker with a limit

In limit games, the minimum buy-in amount is equal to ten times the big blind. There is no maximum pre-purchase amount.
For example: In a game with a limit of $ 5 / 10 the value of the big blind is $ 5, so the minimum pre-purchase amount will be 10x5, that is $ 50.

Pot Limit and No Limit Poker

In poker games with a pot limit (PL) and no limit (NL), there is a minimum and maximum pre-purchase amount.
The maximum amount a player can place in the NL / PL games is described in the game name. For example, in a NL $ 100 game, the maximum pre-purchase amount will be $ 100.
The minimum amount a player can put in the table is 20% of the maximum pre-pay amount. For example, in a NL $ 100 game, the minimum pre-purchase amount will be $ 20.

Bets per table

Toys and tournaments are usually governed by the following betting protocols per table:

It is forbidden to add chips to a player's stack when the hand is in progress.

In real money games, players have the right to add chips to their stack only between hands. In some tournaments, however, there is the option of repurchases and additions, which are only allowed after a hand has been completed and before the start of the next. However, players who do not participate in a hand can add chips or re-buy and add when that hand is in progress.

It is forbidden for players to remove chips from the table.

In real money games, it is forbidden for players to remove chips from the table while the game is in progress until they leave the game. This rule applies regardless of the number of chips placed by a player on the table.
Note: Protocols governing bets per table are designed to protect the game. Otherwise, if a player is allowed to put a few chips in his pocket each time the game is played, then the number of chips in the game is reduced and no table moves.
