The word “official poker” means that it is a game that is played in a card room rather than a casino. It does not imply that the rules in these card rooms are necessarily the same as those in a casino. The word “official” means that the rules and guidelines of the game are recognized by a governing body.
There is a poker rules book available online. It is free to download. It contains the rules of most major poker tournaments around the world. These rules have been developed by the professional Tournament Directors Association, or Poker TDA. It was founded by professional poker players Matt Savage, Linda Johnson, and Jan Fisher in 2001 and now has more than 2,500 members in 63 countries. The rules in these poker books are the first comprehensive set of poker rules available to the general public.
These books are designed to be user-friendly and educational, and contain everything newcomers need to know to enjoy the game. There are also several instructional DVDs to help players learn all the ins and outs of the game. Official Poker, Inc. has also published a series of DVDs about card games, which teaches ordinary people everything they need to know about the game using cards and chips. A Special Players Edition Box Set is also available.
There are three types of cards in a game of poker. One player is the dealer, while the other two players are the small blind and the big blind. Each player has two cards and can either fold or call. If another player has already bet, they can raise the bet.
