The Official Poker Site

Poker is a game of chance but also requires a good deal of skill and psychology. It can be a great social game with friends or even a competitive one. Players bet chips into a middle pile (known as the pot) after each round of betting. The highest hand wins the pot. Players can check, call the bet of another player, raise (or re-raise), or fold their cards. The first active player to the left of the dealer starts the betting on each hand.

The most common form of poker is Texas hold ’em. It has become the main event of many televised tournaments and is widely played in casinos and card rooms around the world. Other poker games include Omaha, 7-card stud, and razz.

Tournament Players

Tournament play differs from cash games because players pay a fixed entry fee into a prize pool and compete for a share of that sum. Players begin with a certain amount of chips and blind levels increase regularly during the course of a tournament.

Players are responsible for protecting the privacy of others and may not discuss hands that have been discarded or possible hand possibilities. Discussing a hand before it is shown at showdown will result in a penalty. Players may not use a cell phone at the table and should inform a floor person when leaving the tournament.
