Poker is a card game U.S., although its origins seem to be in France. This game has become one of the most practiced throughout the world thanks to its simple mechanics. It involves prominently the mental faculties, but without giving rise to complicated calculations. It is a game for two or more persons, in which each player plays for himself without a partner.
2. Goal Getting to collect five cards forming a move to higher value of opposites.
It is not necessary that the play is actually better than the enemy, shall be sufficient to induce opponents with the attitude displayed: appearance, gestures, betting that is to believe, to withdraw before they see the letters.
3. Any player, from a maximum of 7 players and a minimum of two, but the most interesting parts are the 5 or 6 players.
4. Deck Type In poker you use the 52-card English deck (deck of poker), which may include one or two jokers, in the opinion of the players, although it is more advisable to play with no wild card. It is customary to use two cards with the back of a different color, so while one is in play, the other is shuffled along to be given to the next hand.
5. Joker’s Wild, also called Joker, is a letter used to replace or represent any other card that is necessary to compose a play.
For example, a wild card with three tens makes this trio in a poker. Another example: a joker with a seven, nine, ten and a jack do you have a ladder (seven-eight-[joker] nine-ten-jack).
The use of wildcards is not recommended because it upsets all the possible estimates of odds and makes the chance to have greater involvement in the game, to the detriment of the skill or strategy.
It should be noted that in poker you can only use one wildcard play. For example, the repoquer, the move higher when using wild cards can only be done with four identical cards and a joker. In the extraordinary case of receiving two wild cards in the first distribution, you must discard one of them. If the player already has a wildcard qua get another after discarding, may benefit from the use of one of them, leaving the second as a letter without reboot . Finally, if you have two plays quite the same, it is better the play clean or formed without wildcards.
6. Baraja Discarded To make a more interesting game of poker and compete is appropriate to adapt the number of cards from the deck into play qua number of players involved in the game.
An incomplete deck serves mainly to increase the frequency of linking moves higher when there are few players in the game.
Therefore, a good poker player always plays with the complete deck without jokers. With seven players must use the full deck, that is, the 52 cards in the deck.
With six players should be discounted because the twos and threes, leaving 44 cards in the deck.
With five players may discard the twos, threes and fours, leaving 40 cards in the deck. You can also discard the five, and left with 36 cards deck.
With four players or less should be discounted because the twos, threes, four, five and six. That would leave only 32 cards in the deck.
When playing with a deck of cards discarded or incomplete, stairs aces linked at one end to the king (K) and the other with the lowest card of which have been in the deck. (In poker, the ace can never be a middle letter of a ladder.)
Another way to estimate discards of the pack should be based on the number of players is the so-called rule of 11: the number of the lowest card added to the number of players must give 11. Thus, with six players, the lowest card will be a five, as the result of add five and six is eleven.
7.Valor of Cards The cards have no intrinsic value, have only a relative value in relation to others in accordance with the following order, from highest to lowest:
As King (K), Queen (Q) Jack or Jack (J) Ten Nine Eight Seven Two Three Four Five Six
That is, a move with matching number eight for example, makes the same move with any lower relative value cards (twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes or sevens).
The suits are all equal, without any preference in any of the plays.
So when we speak of identical cards, these cards with the same index, ie the same number (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) or letter (J, Q , K, A).
8. Specific Vocabulary Cards change a number of letters to improve the initial move. Raise: Bet an amount on the actual move. No go: Indication that the player does not equal the odds of the other players and withdraws from that round of betting, losing what had bet. Step: Voice with which the player gives up its turn to bet the next player, but not removed from the game. Served: Statement by player stating that does not change any of his letters. I climb: tacit acceptance of another player’s stake increase in the amount indicated. I can also say, I climb. I see: Acceptance of stake of another player matching his bet.

9.The Moves Each player can do with your five cards of the plays that followed, from highest to lowest:
1. Repoquer: four identical cards and a joker. This move, the most valuable poker, can only be achieved when playing with wild cards added to the deck.
2. Straight Flush: Five cards of same suit correlative. It is the highest hand that can be obtained playing without wildcards. There may be a tie, in which case the players split the bets.
3. Poker: four identical cards. If more than one link poker player, who has won the highest card. In no case may a tie.
4. Full House: Three cards of the same combined with two other equally among them. Earn the one with the highest three cards.
5. Color: any five cards of the same suit. If you have two players with this move, wins the one with the highest card if this tie, the next card determines the winner, and so on. If all five cards of the two players were equal, would push and be spread bets.
6. Flush: Five cards of different styles correlated. If more than one player completes a ladder, that gene starting with the highest card. If the cards of both players are equal, there will be a draw and divided the stakes.
7. Kind: three cards of the same and not combine any two together. Wins over three cards.
8. Five figures (or simply FIGURES): five figures, that is, all index cards with letters J, Q, K or A, since it is considered as a figure for this move.

9. Two pairs (or double- couple ): two pairs of cards of different value. If more than one player has two pair, wins the couple having the highest cards, in case of a tie, the one with the second pair of more value, if still a tie, the one with the highest fifth card, if Finally, it also matches the players have tied and split their bets.
10. Pair: Two matching cards and any three unattached. Earn the couple formed by the highest cards, in case of a tie, the one with the high-value cards between the three loose letters. There may be a tie, in which case the players split the bets on the table.
11. Letter to a greater or High Card: If neither player has any of the above combinations, winning the one with the highest card, in case of a tie, is considered the next, and so on, may be a draw at the end, which case the players would share the bets were on the table.
Sorted highest to lowest, are: Repoquer: Four identical cards and a joker Straight Flush: Five cards of the same suit Poker: Full Four of a kind: Three cards of the same and two equal Flush: Five cards of same suit not row. Playing with 40 letters or less, the color is worth more than full. Straight: Five consecutive cards of any suit. Some give more value to the stairs as (royal flush, straight minimum) color. Kind: Three cards of the same Figures: Five index cards A, K, Q, J Two pair: Two cards of the same and another pair of identical cards Pair: Two matching cards Cards: Five cards of any
10. The staircase is usually designated by its highest card, seven, eight, nine, ten, J (stairs to the jack). It is called royal flush or straight to as the one formed by the five highest cards: ten, J, Q, K, A. If you are of the same suit, the color will be royal flush. The minimum stairway is formed by the ace and the four lowest cards: A, two, three, four, five (with full pack), A, six, seven, eight, nine (with a deck of 36 cards discarded), etc. .
The ace on the stairs. In a stairway, the ace can be either the highest card of the series: 10, J, Q, K, A (real or as straight) as the lowest (minimum ladder), but only goes after the king ( K) or before the lowest card in the deck (the two with the full pack).
The relative value of full and color. The full color is better than when played with one or more complete deck of 40 cards. If playing with only 40 letters or less, the color is worth more than full.
The joker. When the plays that matched a wildcard and the other has not made without a wild card wins.
Figures. Not all players support this move, or the assessment above. Others support it, but playing with more than 40 letters believe is worth more than the trio, while if it is played with 40 or less, worth less than a trio. In any case, it is an issue which will need to agree all the players at the start of the game.
The relative value of color and the staircase. Another variation on the order of the scale of the plays is between the different types of stairs and color. Thus, some players find a ladder as (though the royal flush, while the minimum steps) is superior to color, while not as any ladder (ladder lowest) value is lower than the color. At the beginning of the game must also be agreed that assessment.
11. The dead hand of poker games are very familiar to everyone because it is one of the environmental characteristics of westerns.
A classic scene from these movies is that which takes place in a saloon swing doors. In one or more tables to play cards, presumably to poker. Suddenly, a player knocks a table and gets up with gun in hand accusing another player of cheating.
The next depends on who is the protagonist. Probably, this is real and figurative poker was one of the games most popular in the west of the Mississippi, north of the Rio Grande, Pecos right … The result of this popularity is the move known as “the dead hand.” Wild Bill Hickok was one of the legendary Old West gunslingers. Companion and friend of Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane, lived in the halls between whiskey and cards.
One night in 1876 was playing poker at a saloon in Deadwood Gulch, where a villain known as Frank ‘Crooked Nose “McCall slipped behind him and shot him in the back in the neck. Wild Bill fell silently to the ground while keeping his fingers gripped letters: two pair of aces and eights, to be known ever since as “the hand of the dead.”
12. A poker game begins, first, with the agreement of the players about the rules governing the game: the moves are valid, its relative valuation, the use of wildcards, the amount of rest and of the issues, the number card to be used, etc.
Especially important is the clarification of all questions optional when a new player is added to a split between regular players, as they may have taken some special rules.
Afterwards, the place of each player at the table and determine the first player to give the letters.
13. Before the cards are dealt, the player must do the deck and gives the player cut on his right. The young player may not take five or fewer cards, or leave five or fewer letters.
Five cards are dealt to each player, starting with the one on the right (as usual casino games). Each dealer can do it their way To stay in the moment: one by one, first three on each player and then two, etc.. Unable to change the mode within a single round of division (the letters must be given equally to all players) and should be done in any order, without irregularities. Once distributed the cards, each player is considered yours to explore the possibilities of your hand, and in turn, beginning with the player left from that which gave the cards to indicate whether they want to play (fours) or pass.
After a player has opened the betting, other players can no longer move, they can only call or raise the stakes.
When all players have had this option and have called all the bets (the players that do not match must be removed), which gives the letters shall distribute the players to request in exchange for their discards (which can be up to total of five cards), in order to improve their initial move, while not mandatory and changes discards card (it is said that the player would not rule it is served).
With the new game starts the final round of stakes, each player can spend or raise until you open the game. After balancing the stakes, the moves are displayed, and which has the most wins. If all pass and no one opened the game, would show the letters and win the person having the highest hand.
If a player makes a stake, and no one matches him, this player wins the rally without having to show their cards because they do not match at least one stake amounts to retire.
In summary, the poker is composed of the following phases:
1. Initiation of the game according to the modality. 2. Distribution of five cards to each player. 3. Stakes before discarding to take part in the game. 4. Descartes to improve the play. 5. Stakes after discard. 6. Show the cards to see who wins.
14. Openings There are several ways to start the game. The most common is with jack pot or pot, which is that each player puts a number to receive the initial five cards of the game.
Some players require that the amount owed to the dealer has to be twofold. Once distributed the cards, players can only open if they have at least one pair of jacks, without being required to open even taking this minimum.
15. Stakes In turn, starting with the player to the left of the given (the giver has the final voice), each player has the option of entering the game stakes (as I said, indicating his bet) and place the stake in the center of the table or passing (he says happened).
When a player bets has started, the following players and can not pass, so can only accept the invitation, by depositing the same amount in the center of the table, increasing the stake by placing more or retire. Never has a stake may be lower than the previous player or players.
The following players agree the stakes (see) or increased (up) until they are all matched or stakes is that of a player who’s accepted by any of the other players, in which case the player who has done this stake is not is automatically accepted the winner of the game and collect all your winnings, without teaching the hand.
16. Descartes players left in the game after the first round of implications can be ruled out of one, several or all five cards to improve your game, receiving in return the same number of letters.
The player who gave the cards is what makes this new distribution with the cards left in the deck, asking those who play, in order, from the left hand, how many?
If there were enough cards in the deck to complete the hand of the players who were discarded, discards are shuffled all those missing players to complete their cards, except that only one player is the remainder, in which case their discard stands apart, completing their game with other players discards. In some cases, especially when played with a deck incomplete but this must be established early in the game, you can limit the maximum number of discards four cards or even three.
You can not give the last card in the deck, having mixed with discards.
Discards will be left on the table, face down, so you do not see what letters are. It is forbidden to look at the cards of the discard, and those of other players leaving the game.
Discarding is not mandatory, whether or not a move linked. When her turn comes, the player who does not want discarded says: served.
All players must clearly request that distributes the number of cards you wish to change. When giving the letters is changed theirs, must also aloud to say how many cards will take. No player will be ruled out before their turn.
17. The winner wins the game:
1. the player who envy or re-raise if none of the other players to accept or match his stake. Earn without the showdown;
2. If two or more players balancing their stakes or reenvites must show his hand, spreading on the table. The player who made the final stake will be the first to show their cards and wins the one with the best move.
If all players pass, the stakes that are on the table remain the boat for the next play.
18. Other aspects or Draw Place at the Table: The recount previously overcome each player will take place around the table and make new drawings after a certain time (one hour, for example). Place can be bypassed by removing the deck and placing, at the value of your letter, as follows: take the deck as many cards as players have correlated, are shuffled and distributed a letter on the table in front of each site, is Duplicate cards take the same value as the previous ones and, after shuffling, there is one to each player, who will sit in the place indicated by the letter of equal value to which it has returned.
or dealer. You can choose one of the players to make a banker noting the changes of chips or debris which will take each player to carry out more clearly the final.
or Rest. It is the amount that each player can have for the game. The players have to agree at the beginning of the game on the value of the rest.
At the beginning of the game, each player starts with the same remainder to gamble, to be placed in front of him during the course of the game. When you win or lose, this remnant will increase or decrease according to their gains and losses, but in no event shall withdraw any part until the end of the game or until you stop playing. Yes you can reset your rest, but not much lower than that prescribed at the beginning of the game, or in excess of the player that most have.
After starting the game, no player may remove any quantity of your rest, and may not leave gained prior to the scheduled time to finish the game and can be removed from the game, however, lost more than a rest. The new remains will only be asked between games, and before he had seen the letters.
If a new player to occupy a vacant position, you must start with a remainder equal to the average of the remains of the other players.
Stakes. In the game of poker is betting on the actual play-this is superior to those of other players. These bets are made by successive stakes, the other players must match or exceed to oppose his move to the first player who has sent. The stake is the amount that every moment of the game bet and is placed in the center of the table. At the beginning of the game will set the minimum and maximum value of the stakes.
Irregularities. Any player can demand to be given back the cards if:
1. not offered to cut the deck, 2. discover a letter to the cut, 3. appears a letter discovered in the deck before the stakes, 4. we see that the deck is defective, 5. one player out of turn, before warning him to finish (if finished to the irregularity noted before the game would be valid); 6. provide two letters are discovered. If we discover a single card, the player who was destined to be accepting it.
If letters should give more or less to a player and had already looked at some of his letters before claiming, you must withdraw from the game, losing what has so far fours. If you look at their cards before claiming that is less than 5, you can complete the game with the deck, and if you claim that is over 5, you can ask him who gives you remove one of the letters, which, without being seen, pass to be placed under the deck of cards. If a player has six letters and another four may be requested of that was to deliver one of the six cards to the player who has only four, provided to do so before having looked at the letters with or without having made any stake.
However, in most cases, if the irregularities have been warned before the players look at their cards, it is preferable to collect them all and return to give.
