How to Play Poker Introduction
The hierarchy of hands is: best hand royal flush, straight flush, 4-of-a-kind, full house, flush, straight, 3-of-a-kind, two pair, one pair to the lowly no pair.
Players bet against each other and not against the house.
Check the table postings for betting limits, and ask what the rake is (the percentage the house takes for providing a dealer and tables), usually 5% or a maximum dollar amount that is a flat fee or hourly rate.
Most players prefer the comfort of online poker because you can play for free and the forums provide valuable information.
Generally, your buy-in should be 10-20 times the top bet; set a stop-losshow to play poker taught by the pros at gambling teachers limit and a win goal.
If you run out of chips, you'll be allowed to continue to play out your cards; however, you are excluded from betting in the remaining rounds.
A side pot is started and goes to the highest-ranking hand between the other players who donated.
I would recommend that novice players look for the low limit tables.
Contact the room manager, and if a seat is not available for your requested game, you can be placed on a waiting list and paged.

How to Play Poker betting options:
1) bet 2) pass, check, no bet made, you stay in the game
3) call, bet - the same as the previous bet or
4) raise the bet, often a limit of 3 raise bets in any round.
Checking, then raising, is likely allowed.
A 'button' moves around the table clockwise indicating dealer position.
Bluffing - Pick your times and players.
It's easier to bluff against one player and easier against good players who respect the art as opposed to weak players who stay in the pot forever.
