It goes around the table and goes up usually after a certian amount of time, to keep the game going otherwise you could site there and wait for a hand forever.the big blind is twice the the small blind. And the small blind has the option.

Do you have your own set of poker rules, that you try to follow?

Like, not drink and play poker or never play with more than 5% of your poker account.

I do, and most of my rules center around bankroll management and when to play. Here are my rules, set out in commandment style.

Thou shalt not buy into a MTT for more than 2% of your bankroll.

Thou shalt not buy into a single table s’n’g or ring game for more than 5% of your bankroll.

Thou shalt not buy into a game if you are feeling angry, tired, or depressed.

Thou shalt not drink and play cards, unless it’s a friendly home game where the goal is to socialize instead of win money.

Thou shalt not go all in on a flush draw.

Thou shall divvy up thy profits with thy wife.

Mandy asks…

I have a question about poker rules?

I have a question about poker rules(Texas holdem):
For example: Flop: AKQ(all spades) Turn: J(spades) River: 5(diamonds)
my cards: 2(spades) A(Hearts)
opponents hand: 3(spades) 4(clubs)
We both have a flush draw, but who will win? He, because he has a higher card, or there’ll be split?

admin answers:

In you case, your opponent will win because his flush of AKQJ3 is higher than your flush of AKQJ2. Now, if that river card was a 5(spades) instead, then it would be a split pot because you both would have AKQJ5 as your flush.

The Basics

Poker originated in the saloons of the Wild West and has probably the most game variants. It is played player against players and not just against the dealer as in Blackjack, and there is a lot of psychology involved during play. Poker takes a moment to learn and a lifetime to master.

Poker is played from a standard deck of 52 cards. Some variant games use multiple decks or add Jokers or Wild Cards.

The cards are ranked in descending order starting from the highest; Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace. Ace can be high or low. There are four suits; spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs, but no suit is higher than another.

Each player is dealt five cards and is called a hand. The hand highest in ranks wins. In some games there are Wild Cards or Jokers, which can be labelled whatever suit and rank the possessor wishes to.

Playing Poker

In most games players must ‚ante‘ a nominal amount just to have the cards dealt. Once the cards are dealt, the betting starts. Players bet into the pot in the middle of the table and it is done in turn clockwise.

The player with the highest rank showing, is the first to speak and to bet. He can either bet or check. By saying ‚Check‘, he passes the decision to bet to the next player who can also check. If all players check, then it is the end of the round. Everyone opens his cards and the highest hand wins.

Only after one player places a bet the real betting starts. Each player in turn can either ‚Call‘, ‚Raise‘ or ‚Fold‘. To fold is to pass or drop out of the round and not play. To call means willing to match the bet, and the same amount must be placed on the pot. To raise means to match the bet and add an extra bet.

Say you start with a $5 bet. If someone else raises $10, he puts $15 in the pot. When your turn comes again you need to add $10 difference to the pot to stay in the game, and if you want you can also raise or even say ‚Pot‘. Pot is a raise to the maximum, which means to bet the same amount as the total money available in the pot.

If there are no more raises and all the cards have been dealt, then it is the end of the round. Everyone opens his closed cards and the highest hand wins the pot.
