Poker Rules

In poker, all participants according to the order of turns make bets that fall into a common bank. The game is divided into several consecutive rounds in which new community cards appear on the table and trades occur between players who have not folded their cards. The goal of the game is to win the maximum number of chips. Prior to the start of the first round of betting in poker, there is a compulsory betting on the two players sitting to the left of the dealer, which is respectively the small and big blinds. After that players following the players in the small and big blinds (starting with the player sitting to the left of the big blind), clockwise, make their bets. Players in the blinds can also participate in subsequent trades and raise already made bets.

In one round, all players must equalize the maximum bet made, or fold their cards and not participate in subsequent rounds of bidding. If there were no bets in the round, then it is not necessary to raise the bet, you can simply transfer the move to the next player (check). The game may end before the last round, in the case of folding cards by all players except one who becomes the winner and takes the entire pot. In the last round, the cards are opened by the remaining players in the game. When the cards are opened, the player sitting to the left of the dealer, or who made the last raise, must display his cards. All subsequent players can either open their cards if they are higher than already open (the system does this automatically), or choose from two options (show, muck) – reset or show their cards.

After the opening, the player is picked up by the best combination of cards from all the cards on the table. The combination of cards can be made up only of their two cards, which were given out in the dark on the first round and out of any three cards from five open on the table and being common cards for all players. The seniority of the collected combinations is determined according to the generally accepted list of poker five-card combinations. The game system in the case of online poker or dealer will determine the seniority of the player cards and the distribution of the winnings.
