About Poker

One of the most interesting and followed games around the world is Poker. It is not just a singular game but is a family of games that consist of many variants and formats like Holdem, Omaha, etc. Poker is played from one single deck consisting of 4 suits which include Spades, Hearts, Diamond and Clubs. The card ranks from Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. The objective of most variants of poker is to make the best hand consisting of 5 cards. To determine the best hand between the players, fixed hand ranks are used.


Poker is played with a standard 52-card pack. The cards are categorized into two (Hole and community cards). The combination of 5 cards from hole and community cards is used to make a complete hand in poker.
  1. Hole cards: These cards are not shared with any player during a game and can range from 6 to 2 in numbers. These cards stay face down during the game and are only revealed during a showdown event.
  2. Community cards: These cards are shared amongst all the players in a game and stay face up. They make up the board in the centre of the table and hence are also known as table cards.


A chip is either a small disk or a brick that is used in place of real money as in-game currency for poker games. Since notes are difficult to maintain or handle, most poker games play with chips because of their durability and their unfirm size and weight. The value of every chip is denoted by the number engraved on it and its colour. Currently, the conversation ratio of chip value into money in pocket 52 is 1: 1.

Blinds and Position

The minimum bet value that a player has to place in a game is known as blinds. Position is an order or arrangement in which the players of a poker game sit around the table. The positions of players in a hand are determined by right-to-deal cards in a clockwise direction. The Right to deal (Dealer) also moves in the clockwise direction from one player to another after every hand, and therefore respective positions also change after each hand from player to player.
  1. Forced Bets
  2. Compulsory bets like a small blind, big blind and ante that have to be made by the players in the game are known as forced bets. For making forced bets, players are required to make an initial stake to contest. Alongside that, the players are also required to pat the initial of being dealt each hand for one or more players. Normally, the size of the big blind is determined by the person hosting the game. The small blind is half the size of the big blind and the ante is 1/10th of the big blind.
  3. Different positions on a table
  4. The arrangement of seating plan on a poker table is categorized into three position categories:-
    1. Early Positions: Early positions are the first four positions on the poker table and out of these positions, the first two are forced bet positions. The small blind, Big blind, Under the Gun (UTG) and UTG + 1 are early positions in a 9-max table.
    2. Mid Positions:Middle position consists of two positions starting to the immediate left of UTG+1.
    3. Late Positions: These are some of the best positions on the table. The players seated in these positions need to act the last. Cutoff, hijack and dealer positions come under this category..
    4. Small Blind: First person to act after post-flop rounds the player needs to bet 1/2 of BB as a forced bet. Seated immediate left to the dealer position.
    5. Big Blinds:This is the second forced bet. Player on the immediate left of the Small Blind and the second left to the Dealer button posts this blind which is always double the Small Blind and hence known as “Big Blind”.
    6. UTG The player seated on the immediate left of the big blind is known as UTG or “Under the Gun”. In pre-Flop rounds, UTG is the first one to act, therefore it is one of the difficult seats in the game to take the correct decisions.
    7. Cut off:The player sitting immediately to the right of the dealer button is known as Cut off in poker. It is the second-best position in the hand of poker. It is called Cut off because this player has the advantage of bluffing, acting with a strong hand or raising the blinds being at a late position.
    8. Hijack: The player sitting to the immediate right of the “cutoff” and second to the right of the dealer button is known as a “Hijack”.

Betting Limits

Variants of Poker

1. Hold'em

Hold’em is the most popular variant of the game worldwide and No-limit Hold’em (NLHE) is the most popular among all the Hold’em variants. Hold'em is played from a single deck between 2 to 9 players. Each player needs to make the best five-card combination (as per the hand ranking) to win the pot. You can use both of your hole cards to make your best hand. You can even use all five cards on the table i.e. “play the board” & use no hole cards at all.
In a Hold'em card game, every player on the table gets two cards (hole cards) that are not visible to other players. Five cards are revealed face-up on the table during the betting rounds which are termed "community cards". As per the strength of his cards, every player takes an action (a bet, raise, call, fold) on his turn to act. After the betting rounds, the players reveal their cards. The player with the best five-card hand as per the hand ranking rules wins the pot (the amount of money all players wager on the table during the betting rounds).

2. Omaha

  • Omaha 4
  • Omaha Poker is a poker game derived from Texas Hold’em poker. It puts skill to the test more than other poker game variants because each player is dealt 4 cards in the game out of which 2 and only 2 have to be used to make your best 5 card combination. The community cards open the same as Hold’em only but a player can use only 3 of them to make his best hand. Omaha’s most popular format is Omaha-4. In Omaha-4, players can’t bet more than the pot amount. The goal of omaha is to make the best 5-card combination using exactly 2 of the 4-hole cards and 3 of the 5 community cards.
