In poker, there are some rules that are common no matter what poker variant or strategy you use. Here we have created a short introdkusjon the poker rules.

There are many variations of poker. The four most common varieties are:

How to play poker

How you play is of course not only depends on which version you choose, but also what strategy you use. During reproduced the main features of poker games no matter which variant it is about.

Poker is played over several rounds. Each round each player is dealt cards and must bet. Those who have thrown themselves are out of the game for the rest of the round. Those who remain, are now dealt new cards are trading cards, or it is added community cards in the middle, depending on the poker variant being played. This repeats, bets and new cards until the last round, then it's just a bet before the cards are displayed and the player (s) with the best cards wins the pot.

Poker Rules

Bets is rotated. The player immediately clockwise the start, each player can either:
Passe (check) - if it has not been wagered or bet, you have options ; wager (bet), check (fit) or fold (fold). And since no one has bet before you get a " free" game where you have to put money in the pot until someone raises.

Bet (bet) - put money in the pot as the first player.
Raise (raise) - if one has put money into the pot before you, you have options ; Raise (raise) Syne (call) or Throw up (fold). Raise means to put more money into the pot than the bettor recently did.
Syne (call) - put as much money into the pot as it has been raised or bet.
Fold (fold) - fold and not put more money in the pot, thus losing the chance to win it.

Least one round, and when all paid the same amount to the pot (all but one has called or folded), the bet over and the game continues with those who have sight.

Number of rounds of betting can also be determined by the players. If there is wagered, it is reduced to a game of chance as to who draws the best cards. Generally there are several rounds, for example Texas Hold'em 4 bets.

Last round is again a bet before it's time to show (showdown). Whoever put the last bet is the one who must show their cards first, because the potential counterparties then call that person. Then if they like the sight does not have a better hand, they may not show their cards (muck). Whoever has the best hand gets all the money in the pot, unless more players have the best hand and the pot is split. Then start a new game.

What does "all in" mean?

"All in" means you are betting everything. Most people know this of course, but here's something you might not know:

This occurs most often in No -limit version of poker, but can also occur limit version. The player can not bet more (there are usually not allowed to bet more money than you have on the table). If other players call, or raise, the current pot set aside and the remaining players who have not gone all in, continue with a new pot.

Of the above reason, a player goes all in (and also in general) do not win more than what you have invested themselves, from each of the players. In the last round when the hands are shown, getting everyone involved, play -by-side pot. The player who is gone all out has not helped the new pot, and it is the best hand among the other players who win this new pot.

Hands in poker

There are several variations of poker, and it is not insignificant which variation to play in relation to poker hands. However, the ranking of values ​​equal in all poker games.

The best combination of five cards that a player is sitting with is called a hand. It could be the player's own five cards (as in 5 card draw), the top five of the player's seven cards (as in 7- card stud), or the top five of their own cards plus the community cards (like in Texas Hold'em). Hands are ranked from best to worst as follows:

  • Royal Flush - A straight flush ace-high. A ♦ K ♦ Q ♦ J ♦ 10 ♦
  • Straight Flush - all in a row in the same suit, for example. 6 ♠ 5 ♠ 4 ♠ 3 ♠ 2 ♠
  • Four of a Kind - four cards of the same rank, for example. A ♠ A ♥ A ♦ 8 ♣ 3 ♠
  • House - three of a kind plus two as such. 8 ♠ 8 ♦ 8 ♥ K ♠ K ♣
  • Flush - all in the same suit, for example. A ♠ 10 ♠ 8 ♠ 6 ♠ 4 ♠
  • Straight - all cards in a row, for example. 7 ♠ 6 ♥ 5 ♦ 4 ♣ 3 ♠
  • Three of a Kind - three cards of the same rank, for example. 3 ♠ 3 ♥ 3 ♦ 9 ♣ 5 ♠
  • Two pairs - two different couples, for example. K ♠ K ♦ 4 ♥ 4 ♠ 6 ♣
  • One Pair - two cards of the same rank, for example. 10 ♠ 10 ♦ Q ♥ 9 ♠ 7 ♣
  • Top short - none of the aforementioned combinations, eg. Q ♠ 10 ♦ 8 ♥ 5 ♠ 2 ♣

Royal Flush is thus a special case of straight flush is the best hand and beats everything else. A lower Straight Flush will beat all hands that are royal flush, four of a kind will beat all hands that are not straight flush, etc.

If two or more players have hands of the same rank, the hand with the highest top card. A straight with a Top 10 (10 ♠ 9 ♥ 8 ♦ 7 ♣ 6 ♠) beats a straight 7 on top (7 ​​♣ 6 ♠ 5 ♦ 4 ♣ 3 ♠), and a house with 9 of the top (eg. 9 ♠ 9 ♦ 9 ♥ 7 ♠ 7 ♣) turns a house with 7 of the top (eg. 7 ♠ 7 ♣ 7 ♥ K ♠ K ♣).

If there is still a tie, or neither player has at least one pair is comparable to the highest of the remaining cards. A pair of 9s plus a jack (eg. 9 ♠ 9 ♦ J ♥ 7 ♠ 3 ♣) beats a pair of 9s plus a 10 's (eg. 9 ♠ 9 ♦ 10 ♥ 8 ♠ 7 ♣), and a hand with K ♠ 10 ♦ 9 ♥ 7 ♠ 6 ♣ turn a hand with K ♠ 10 ♦ 8 ♥ 7 ♠ 6 ♣, then 9 ♥ 8 ♥ turn.

Different cultivars (spades (♠), hearts (♥), diamonds (♦), clubs (♣)) are valued equally in otherwise identical hands, for example. is a Straight Flush in connection with the Top 10 as much worth as a straight flush in spades with the Top 10.

If the game is a tie, the money or chips in the game is divided between the players with the best hands.
