In Poker, players raise the betting pool when their cards are of equal rank, and the player with the highest card in a suit wins the odd chip. Eventually, the pot is divided as evenly as possible between the players with the same rank. In addition, players can raise their chips to change their position, or fold if they’re at a loss. In either case, the player should turn over their cards to the dealer. Poker terminology includes terms that describe actions such as bluffing, raising, and calling.

In poker, the number of players involved is up to seven or more. In games with more than seven players, poker chips must be provided. Players are given two different kinds of chips, a white chip and a red chip. White chips are the lowest-valued, and red chips are worth five. Blue chips, on the other hand, are worth two, four, or five reds. Players “buy in” to the game by purchasing chips of equal value, and they are called active players.

There are various variations of poker, including Three-Card Monte and Spit-in-the-Ocean. All these variants are described later in this chapter. If more than ten people are playing, two separate games are organized. The winner of the pot must prove they were legal openers. The game ends when the flop, river, and the turn are a tie. If the two players have the same hand, the pot will be split equally.
