Poker is a card game where players place bets on their own or other players’ cards. It is a skill based game but luck does play a role in the short term. Ultimately, it is the player who can master the art of bluffing and folding who will win.

The game is played with one or more packs of cards dealt face up to the players in turn, beginning with the person to their left. The cards are then discarded and replaced by new ones from the draw stack. A player can choose to raise, call or fold depending on their hand strength and the actions of other players.

After the betting rounds, players show their hands and the player with the best hand wins the pot. This hand can be made up of a Straight, Flush, Full House or two pair.
