Poker is a family of popular card games where players place wagers over which card is most likely to be right according to the rules of the game. It can be played with a group of people sitting at a table, or it can be played by all alone at a computer station. The object of the game is for the player, to remove the highest card (the “queen”), while everyone else that didn’t bet on that card is left at that position. If anyone removes a card that the other players wanted (because they guessed it was the highest card), the game ends and another round begins. It is usually a race to be the first player to seven or eight cards, with the others being eliminated when the game ends.
A standard poker game consists of two twenty-four hour shifts for each round, a four person blinds deal, and a four person pot. The players start with a downcard, called the ” ante”, and a high card, called the flop, also called the “low card”. After the ante and the flop are used, the dealer then deals out seven cards, called the flop, face down, to each player.
After the first round of betting, called the “action” the dealer then reveals the top card on his flop, called the ” exposed card”. In some Texas Hold’em games, this is called the “high card”. After revealing the top card, if there is still a round left before the flop, called the “turn”, then the dealer will have to call out, “You’ve had your turn”. If there is still a round left before the turn, called the “turn”, then the dealer will have to reveal the second card on his flop, called the “low card”. This is called the “flush”.
