The game of poker is a gambling card game, and playing poker online is currently undergoing a surge in popularity.
All poker online games variants involve betting as an intrinsic part of play, and determine the winner of each hand according to the combinations of players’ cards, at least some of which remain hidden until the end of the poker hand.
Poker games vary in the number of cards dealt, the number of shared or “community” cards, the number of cards that remain hidden, and the betting procedures.

There are many different variants of the game of poker, some of which seem similar but have specific quirks and different strategy.
By far the most common poker variant is no limit Texas Hold’em
No Limit Or Fixed Limit: In some games – known as fixed limit or pot limit – players are permitted to bet only a very specific amount, determined by the pre-arranged level of the game. But “no limit” means that there are no betting restrictions: no matter how many chips you have in front of you during a no limit game, you are allowed to bet them all whenever it is your turn. Crucially, you are not allowed to bet any more than you have in front of you.
Poker Games Basics
Using the standard 4-suit 52-card deck, there are many variations of the game
A joker or other wild cards may be agreed upon.
At the end of a game at the showdown, those players still remaining compare their hands according to the hand rankings. Suits are not used to break ties, nor are cards beyond the fifth; only the best five cards in each hand are used in the comparison. In the case of a tie, the pot is split equally among the tied/winning hands.
Poker ‘escalates’ as players bet against each other. Because of this, players may be drawn into risking larger and larger amounts of money without appreciating the odds of losing.
Poker games and tournaments have different rules depending on where they are played.
