How to play Poker

Poker is one of the most popular card games in the world, how you play it will depend on what type of poker you choose to play. The most commonly played poker game, both in land-based casinos and online ones, is Texas Hold'em. Any casino tips site will tell you to familiarise yourself with the rules of Texas Hold'em before you sit down at the table, if you don't it could prove to be a very costly trip to the casino.

Texas Hold'em starts with every player being dealt two cards face down. This is followed by a round of betting, known as the 'pre-flop'. During the pre-flop players can check, bet or fold depending on the strength of their starting hand. Once the betting has come to a close, three cards, called the flop, are dealt face up on the table. Then there's another round of betting before the fourth community card, known as the river, is dealt. Another round of betting takes place before the fifth and final community card is dealt. Once again, the remaining players either check, bet, fold or raise before a winner is determined.
