Official Poker

Official Poker is a series of DVDs on card games. The first volume teaches basic moves and advanced cuts. It is now available in a Special Players Edition Box Set.

Poker is a game that involves several betting rounds. When the round begins, a player to the left of the big blind is the first to act. They can call or fold. If no other player has bet, the player can also raise.

Another variation of poker is called draw poker. In this form, players are given five cards to form their hand. The player with the strongest hand wins the pot if they fold or the other player bets. This type of game is also known as five-card draw.

A variant of poker known as lowball is often played at home. In this form, there is no requirement for suited cards. Instead, an unsuited broken straight wins the low.

Poker rules prohibit ‘ghosting’. This is when a player acts out of turn by ‘cheating’, and may include playing the game on their own laptop with their girlfriend.

There are also rules against ‘angle shooting’. This is when a player uses their chips to try to confuse an opponent. While this has become a grey area, it is still considered unethical.

Other rules against ghosting are that a player cannot change their seat after the hand has started. Additionally, it is not allowed to make exaggerated celebrations.

Finally, the World Federation of Poker has rules against cheating and cell phone use at the table. These are enforced by a dealer or floor manager.
