What Are The Rules For Poker?
Poker Rules – The specific rules of poker vary from game to game. But most games follow the same structure: dealing and rounds of betting. Each hand begins with a blind bet: either a blind or an ante. Cards are dealt one at a time, starting with the player to the left of the dealer, moving in a circle clockwise, and ending with the dealer.
In hold’em games, cards are dealt to individuals face down; these are their hole cards, and only the player holding them can use them.In stud games, cards are dealt to individuals; some are face up and some are face down, but only the player holding them can use them.In draw games, players are dealt a full hand of cards. Only the players holding them can use them.
After cards are dealt, there is a round of betting: a player (usually the one to the left of the dealer) can check or bet.
If a player checks, the action goes to the next player on the left, who can also check or bet.If a player bets, the next player can respond: calling the bet, raising, or folding.Action continues in a circle until every player has checked, called, or folded.
Depending on the poker variant, more cards are dealt:
In stud games, cards are dealt to individual players. Some are face up and some are face down, but only the player holding them can use them.In flop games, community cards are dealt face up, and all players can use them to make their best handIn draw hands, players can exchange their cards for others from the deck. Only the player holding them can use them.
Depending on the game, there can be multiple rounds of betting. But the outcomes are always the same:
A player bets, and everyone folds: this player wins the pot.A player bets, and one or more players call: the players show their hands, beginning with the last player to bet or raise.
The player with the best hand wins. The hands are ranked as follows, from lowest to highest:
High CardOne PairTwo Pairs Three of a Kind Straight Flush Full House Four of a Kind Straight Flush
If two players have the same exact hand, they split the pot.

Do you know the real rules of Poker?
Betting Limits – Betting limits refer to the amount players may open and raise. Typically, poker games are of the following types; no limit, pot limit or fixed limit.
- No Limit – in poker games with a no limit betting structure, each player can bet or raise by any amount up to and including their full stack (the total number of chips they possess at any given time) in any betting round, whenever it is their turn to act.
- Pot Limit – in poker games with a pot limit betting structure, each player can bet or raise by any amount up to and including the size of the total pot at that time.
- Fixed Limit – in poker games with a fixed limit betting structure, each player can choose to call, bet or raise, but only by a fixed amount. The fixed amount for any given betting round is set in advance.
For No Limit and Pot Limit games, the ‘Stakes’ column in the PokerStars lobby indicates the Small Blind and Big Blind in that game, while for Mixed Games, the Stakes listed in the lobby are the betting amounts for Limit games; in Pot Limit and No Limit rounds, the blinds are usually half of the blinds in limit games.
