How to Play Poker?
The poker cards are easy to play and the essential part of poker is a well well-chosen strategy. If you are not sure which card to play, the best option is to read the table numbers first. A number at the top indicates the position of the cards.
Player’s hand number has a connection with his future movements. It also allows the player to know if he is playing for a straight or an all-in. The position of the cards is determined from the table numbers. Every hand is followed by a succession of positions.
The cards are dealt in the order from the right to left (left to right in American language). The dealer will now turn over the cards to the player. Sometimes the dealer tells the player how many hands the cards can hold and this is referred to as betting on cards.
There are three types of betting:
Betting on the cards in front of the dealer, betting on the face card of the deck and betting on the top card of the deck. Top card refers to the ace, the queen, the jack and the ten of clubs. The ace is the most important card and it is always played first.
Betting on the cards in front of the dealer is also known as “pair betting”. In this situation the player will place his bet on any card that is face up but the top card is always bet.
Betting on the face card of the deck refers to a player who bets on a given card before the dealer reveals it. In such a situation the card that is revealed is the one that will be played next. This position is also called “set betting”.
The Flop Betting
Betting on the top card of the deck is usually called “the flop betting”. This position is where the player has to bet the highest card of the deck or in the middle of the deck.
The player should never bet on the top card of the deck, unless he knows the rest of the cards before him. Some players tend to bet the high cards and wait for the lower cards to come. Such a strategy often pays off.
There are some rules regarding betting on the cards. First of all, you should not bet all of your money on one card. Second, you should always bet the cards that you feel are more valuable than the ones that are being played in front of you.
