Official Poker

Official poker is a game of chance played at a table with a deck of cards. After cards are dealt, players place their bets into a pot and the player who has the best hand after all betting is done wins the pot.

A pack of 52 cards is used to play poker, and the cards are ranked in descending order: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. The highest hand wins.

The cards are dealt face up, and the other players get to see a part of each players’ hands. There are two main forms of Poker: Draw and Stud.

There are many variations of Poker, but all poker games have some common rules. The first is that each player attempts to form the best possible five-card poker hand out of the cards they are dealt.

Players may call, raise or fold. A player may call by placing an amount equal to what another player has bet since the last round of betting, or they can raise by placing an additional amount.

In cash games and tournaments, poker chips are commonly divided into $1, $5, $10, $20 or $25 denominations, with the smallest chips being white. The higher-value chips have different colors to differentiate them from the lower-value chips.

While there are no industry rules regarding poker chip color values, most establishments apply similar values to chips across different cash games and tournaments. The lowest denomination is usually white, followed by red, blue, green, black, purple (or lavender), yellow, and orange.
