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

The betting limit is the maximum bet amount that is allowed in one single bet in a hand of poker. There are three types of limits in poker for betting in a hand:
  1. No limit: There is no restriction on betting amount, users can choose to bet any amount starting from one BB to his/her total stack size in a single bet.
  2. Pot Limit:The user can choose to bet from a range of amounts starting from one BB to the total pot size in that hand. In pot-limit max bet can be of pot size only.
  3. Fixed Limit:The user can choose to bet from a range of amounts starting from one BB to the fixed size of the bet that is set while playing the game.

Hand Ranking

A player should know his hand strength to determine whether he should continue in the hand or fold. To know the strength, a player has to know the hand's ranks in poker with their order of ranking.

Poker Actions

1.Game action

Game action is the term for all the actions that a player can take while playing the game. Game actions in poker are:-
  1. Call - It means that there is an active bet/raise going on and the player has to match that bet by calling to continue in a hand.
  2. Check - It means that the user can pass the gaming action to another player without putting up any more chips in the pot.
  3. Bet/Raise - Raise means wagering up any amount into the pot to increase the pot value either to start the action or to increase the raise amount above the raise of another player. Bet is the first raise of any betting round.
  4. Fold - Fold means that the player voluntarily doesn’t want to be part of the current hand.
  5. All In -It is a special case of raise or call where a player has committed all his/her stack chips to the pot therefore he will be part of the hand till the showdown and can’t be considered as a folded player.
Game actions are taken up by players in each betting round. These betting rounds or hand phases are:-
  1. Preflop -Betting rounds which happen after the distribution of hole cards and putting up of blinds (Forced bets). In this round, the player has to decide his action based on his hole cards only.
  2. Postflop -Betting rounds that happen after opening up the first three community cards ( Flop). In this round, the player has to decide his action based on his hole cards only.
  3. Turn - Betting round that happens after opening up of the 4th community card (Turn).
  4. River - Betting round that happens after opening up of the 5th community card (River).
  5. Showdown -This is the final stage in a poker hand where the remaining players in the hand have to show their cards to decide who is the winner of the hand.

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

  1. PLO 4
  2. 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 Pot-limit Omaha (PLO). In PLO, players can’t bet more than the pot amount. The goal of PLO is to make the best 5-card combination using exactly 2 of the 4-hole cards and 3 of the 5 community cards.
  3. PLO 5 and 6
  4. PLO 5 and 6 are the variant of Omaha where a user has 5 and 6-hole cards instead of 4 but the goal remains the same. The goal of PLO 5 and 6 is to make the best 5-card combination using exactly 2 of the 5 or 6-hole cards and 3 of the 5 community cards. Both PLO 5 and 6 are considered action-heavy games and require high skills and concentration due to the high number of possibilities of hand combinations.


About Tournaments

Tournaments in poker are the best skill test for a player and probably the most engaging format in the game of poker. They are designed in such a way so that there is a level field of play for all the registered players and no one should get an added advantage due to any factor. The objective is to eliminate other players and reach the highest rank possible by accumulating as many chips as possible.
Tournaments have multiple variants based on factors like entry types, prize structures, blind time intervals and more. In poker, the most famous tournament format is Multi-table tournaments (MTT). MTTs tournaments have variants such as:-
  1. Re-entry - A re-entry tournament gives the option to buy another entry into the same tournament if you're knocked out till late registration time. You need to pay the tournament buy-in again in order to re-enter with the same initial chip stack.
  2. Freezeout - A freezeout tournament doesn't allow re-entry, therefore a player cannot re-enter the tournament if he/she runs out of chips. Once the chips run out for a player, it's over.
  3. Add-On - An add-on is an additional buy-in in a poker tournament. An add-on tournament will offer an 'add-on' option to buy more chips than a player received with his original buy-in. Usually, this option to 'add-on' during a tournament is given at the end of the rebuy period.
  4. Freeroll - In these tournaments, the buying amount is free therefore a player can make his/her bankroll without investing anything in poker.
  5. Satellite - A satellite tournament in poker is a qualifying tournament. Winners of these tournaments usually get a ticket which is the buy-in to a larger, more prestigious target tournament.

Sit N Go

SNG tournaments are the same as MTT tournaments with the difference being in the initiation of the tournaments. SNG tournament does not start at a specific time. These start based on the number of minimum entries required to start the tournament.
As soon as the minimum criteria for filling the seats are achieved, that tournament goes into late registration phase or running phase based on tournament configuration. Most common SNGs are of the single tables only and have fast-paced structures therefore SNGs are of low duration.
