Poker is an online family of games where players put their money (called “wins” or “rewards”) and try to beat the other players (called “opponents”). Poker is closely related to other card games like blackjack, which are also played online. Poker was created by William J. Deveraux in 1974. Today, it is one of the most popular games online, with an estimated total prize of over $60 billion worldwide.
In a game of poker, each player is dealt a hand consisting of three cards – one card for yourself, one card for your opponent and another card that you may not know and which will be a called “low card”. Poker basically is a set of tactics used to exchange these three cards in order to exchange a high card for a low card or vice versa. Poker is played with the same basic rule, except that the object is to “play the card you need to play, and not the card you don’t need to play”.
During a poker game, each player is dealt a hand and is then allowed to make pre-game negotiations, which may include raising or lowering the betting amount, or bluffing. After the negotiations are complete, the players then deal a single, regular poker hand and move on to another pre-planned table. In a poker game, all of the cards are laid out from the start into position, face down, from the top of the table to the bottom.
