Poker – what is poker?

Poker is a gambling game played with cards. Well known from the most common Western and especially old American gangster films.

The game can be played with five or seven cards per player, with several types and variations. Depending on the game, you play with or without the knowledge of the cards of one or the other opponent. The goal is to win the bet of all players. Usually this is about money, but it is also played as a substitute for matches or other placeholders. Virtually every online poker player has the opportunity to play for fun until you feel it’s enough for the real money tables.

The most famous variant is Texas Hold’em Poker, in which you hold 2 cards in your hand without knowing the cards of the opponents. Win the cards with the highest value. There are several card combinations. The value of the combinations is calculated from the probability to get that combination from a deck of 52 cards.

As with any game where there is something to win or lose, you can hit tricksters. Good con artists can mix a hand so that they always know which card is at which point in the pile. So you not only know who has which cards, but you can also decide exactly who gets which cards when placing the cards. In today’s age of online poker, however, this is virtually eliminated and the risk of being pulled over the table when playing poker is usually only in private rounds, except in old Westerns.
