Poker is a gambling game where players use a standard pack of cards to make the best hand possible. The player with the best hand wins the pot.

Players can choose to bet, match the bet or fold. If a player folds, he or she loses the pot. However, if the player who folded is still in the game, they can continue to play.

Cards are dealt to each player one at a time. A player who has a pair or better will receive two cards. This may be done face up or down.

After the draw, a player can either call or raise. Each bet is limited to the number of chips in the pot. For example, if the limit is five in the first four betting intervals, then a player can only bet a total of five chips in the final betting interval.

In poker, the high card breaks ties. For example, when two people have a pair, and a third person has a high card, the high card wins. Likewise, when two four of a kind are tied, a high card outside the fourth winning combination breaks the tie.

Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. These cards are ranked from Ace to Ten. Chips are generally white or blue, but they can be black.

Some poker games include a wild card. A wild card is a card that can take any suit. They can also be used to replace a card that has been used.
