General information about poker rules for beginners
Basic equipment, start:
To start an online poker game, that is, between friends, in a casino or gaming circle, or in an amateur playing club, you need a deck of 52 cards (plastic if possible, because these cards are more sliding Good) and can be distorted without folding), or you can use several different tokens for betting (I recommend you to use tokens with a value because they are more practical, but they don’t have a face value). For more comfort, you can also use the poker mats that define the playing area and the "Trader" or "Donor" buttons, which can be symbolized by large objects that move from one place to another. On the left, one after another.
When you are new to poker, you can start to make the rules while playing the game. Poker is a very standardized game in which the rules are important because the rules allow you to play in a defined framework and be accepted by everyone, whether you are an experienced player or a beginner.
Before starting the game, it is necessary to specify who will be the first dealer. Usually, this place is allocated randomly. Then directly to the left of the dealer is the player in the small blind position (must place the game unit on the table), and then start the game; then the player in the big blind position (usually the game position of two units must be Placement) Before the cards are dealt, you can also play in the ordinary pot. The blinds posted by these players can even be placed before the stroke begins. When the player decides to play in the cash game mode, the number of blinds remains the same during the game. On the other hand, if the player decides to play the game in the sitting mode or the tournament mode, the number of blinds per time period increases in a predetermined manner. For example, in the first 20 minutes, the blind is 10/20, then, after 20 minutes, the blind is 20/40, and so on. In sitting games or tournaments, as time goes by, the pressure of the blinds increases. Players still in the game are becoming more and more important on the mat (or chips: the sum of chips of each participant).
In poker, the game refers to the entire game or game, and strokes are used to define a series of confrontations, which are interrupted by betting rounds. After the move is completed, another move will start immediately via the button (designated the dealer) and the blinds, opening a notch to the left and assigning a new card to everyone (after reshuffling).
The rules of poker for beginners start with the following combination:
The purpose of poker is to win the opponent's chips. For this, you can use the technique of bluffing, but you can also try to achieve a combination that is superior to your opponent. In this game, the chips you save or not lose are as important as the chips you get from your opponent. Therefore, when you think that you are defeated and your opponent will not fold (fold), you must grow on your favorite pot and know how to fold or control the size of the pot.
There are 10 combinations in poker, and they are classified according to each other's strengths (the less a combination is and the stronger, and vice versa, the more a combination is, the more common and the less power it has). The strongest combination is a Royal Flush, and the weakest combination is a low separation card (with a weak kicker (by value, the kicker is the second card)).
In poker, the single winner is the one who is left alone after being folded by others in the game, or the one who has the best combination of cards after the showdown (also known as the showdown). If there are several players participating in the duel, in the event of a tie, several players can share the pot. Therefore, there may be several winners.
Beginners should know that in Texas Hold'em, the combination is always 5 cards. Even if the combination does not include 5 cards like a pair, the other high cards of the board should be considered (this pair uses 2 cards and the other 3 high cards are common to all players).
Poker card games are different from Belote or Tarot card games. In poker, the king uses the letter K to represent the king. The queen is represented by the queen's Q, Jack corresponds to Jack's J, and sometimes 10 is represented as T for ten.
. A single or high card is the highest card among players who fail to form a stronger combination. If several opponents have the same high card, their second card (called kicker) can decide between them. Example: Q♡ . The order of playing cards from low to high is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A.
.The pair consists of two identical cards. If several players have a pair in common, other high cards can decide between them. Example: Q♡ Q♢
.The double pair consists of two pairs. When several players have double pairs of the same value, the fifth highest card can decide between them. Example: Q♡ Q♢ + 9♤ 9♧
.Three of the first category consist of three cards of the same value. When several players have a set of common ground, the other two high cards can be effective. Example:
Q♡ Q♢ Q♤
.A straight or straight consists of 5 consecutive cards (not all cards must have the same suit). Higher rows always have an advantage. When several players have the same straight, the pot may be divided equally. For example: 2♡ 3♢ 4♤ 5♧ 6♡
. A flush or flush means that 5 cards of the same suit are not consecutive. Through the suit, we must understand the spade, heart, diamond or cue. If there are several straight flushes, the one with the most wins wins. Example: Q♡ 4♡ 9♡ 2♡ 6♡
.The full amount consists of a set of three cards of the same value and another set of two cards of similar value. In order for beginners to remember the combination, they were also told that it was a set + a pair. Example: Q♡ Q♢ Q♤ + 6♧ 6♡
.The square contains 4 cards of the same value. If necessary, the highest card can be combined to make a decision between several players with the same square on the board. Example: Q♡ Q♢ Q♤ Q♧
. A straight flush is a straight flush of the same deck, and the highest card cannot exceed the king. For example: 8♡ 9♡ T♡ J♡ Q♡
. Royal flush is also the same suit, but different from other suits, the lower hand is 10 and the higher hand is Ace. This is an unparalleled combination, but very rare. Example:
T♡ J♡ Q♡ ♡ ♡
Rules for poker beginners regarding the stroke process:
When the players place their positions around the table, and the players in the small blind position and the big blind position place their blinds in front of them, the dealer starts to deal the cards, and from the opponent in the small blind position Start to deal one card for each card and clockwise. When the first round of trading is over, the dealer will start operations again, always starting with the player in the small blind and ending with himself. In the game of Texas Hold'em, after each player receives his two private cards, everyone has the right to announce their actions in turn. The first is the player who landed under the UTG (under the gun), that is to say in the big blind. Note the left side of the position. In the pre-flop betting round, players take turns to speak, and the player in the big blind speaks last.
The player who speaks first after the cards are dealt can use three options. he can :
-Folding (folding), that is, if he feels that his hand is too weak to participate in the expansion action, he gives up his hand and gives up the move.
-Pay or call the big blind (calling), that is, he deposits the chips corresponding to the number of big blinds in front of him, which allows him to stay in the game at a lower cost. -Raising means that the player must deposit at least twice the amount of the big blind. Raising to squeeze or increase the pot, or show strength to opponents to impress them (for the rest of the trip) or get them off the trip.
After the first player speaks, it is the second player's turn, then the third player, and so on. Every player who follows the first player can perform the same actions as the first player.
In the case of a raise or re-raise, to keep the game state, other players must line up at the highest raise, or double the raise.
Sometimes it happens until all the players in the small blind feel that their hands are not good enough to make and fold. In this case, the player in the small blind can choose to match the number of big blinds, continue the game, or fold in turn and give up the small blind to the only opponent. In the game, the big blind player. If the player in the small blind decides to replenish the big blind, the player in the big blind can raise or say "check", which means he can continue the game without "adding chips to the pot". The two players still in the game can also raise.
From the flop to the river, all players can perform the same operations as before the flop, and increase the possibility of checking (words) if no fees were paid to the pot in the previous betting round. .
Street (or betting round):
In poker, we refer to the different moments when players are allowed to place bets as "streets". The first is the pre-flop stage, then the flop, turn and river. Therefore, there are 4 streets in Texas Hold'em.
-The first stage of betting is called pre-flop. During this betting stage, no cards will be displayed on the table, and players only need to use the pocket cards received from the dealer.
-After the pre-flop bet is completed, the dealer burns the first card (that is, he puts a card face down on the table. This is a poker tradition that aims to avoid playing the first card Cards to reduce the risk of cheating. Then, he placed the next three cards face up in a Texas Hold'em game (mostly the same as the Omaha game). The display of these three cards and the subsequent down A round of betting is called a flop. Once the flop is on the table, the players who are still in the game will participate in the betting round.
-The turn is the next stage, in which the dealer burns a new card and places the fourth card face up on the table. There will be a new round of betting between players still in the game. -By the river, the dealer burns the last card, and then turns the 5th card on it (also called the "table". The bard puts all the community cards face up), face up . Once the river cards are known, the players still in the game will make the final round of betting.
At the end of the last round of betting, if there are still several players in the game, they will show pocket cards to determine if there is a winner or if the pot is evenly divided. This stage of the game is called a showdown. In the duel, the player with the strongest combination wins. When the game at this stage is over, the next dealer will shuffle and re-deal. Since then, this is a new move.
