Introduction: Learn How to Play Poker! Since I’how to play poker amazed that a lot of people don’t know how to play poker, though I’ve played since I was like, 10, I figured I’d help y’all learn how to play so you can go to casinos and lose your money.
Alright, I’m going to teach you how to play: 5 Card Draw, 5 Card Stud, Texas Hold ‘Em, and Blackjack, which some people consider a kind of poker. Note: I wouldn’t try to cheat anyone out of money at betting games like these, they can get mad. Don’t try it, be truthful and play nice, cheating spoils the game. 1 Deck of Cards, brand doesn’t matter, though I prefer Bicycles. Note: You may need more than one deck if you are playing with a lot of people. 1 friend should do, but the more, the merrier.
Optional: Card table, but regular tables work, and you need somewhere to put your cards. Optional: Money, if you are betting. Ante – the first, usually small, amount of money put up in a game, all players must put it up if they wish to be dealt in. Fold – to get out of a hand. You just throw your cards away, and that’s it. You can do this at any point in the game.
Call – if someone bets, you can say call to put up the same amount as him and go to the next round. Raise – If someone bets an amount, and you think you have an outstanding hand, you can put up as much as he did, and then some. Capped betting – This means you can’t bet anymore, you can only call. This happens after about 4 raises, or when the limit is met.
