Poker Betting

The basic history of poker has been written time and time again. Although poker became a game of the 21st century, it really dates back hundreds of years. During this time the game that has been re-invented in so many different ways and forms with each game having its very own set of rules no matter how small the difference in the rules.

There are three dimensions to poker betting in that it is a card game, all hands have a ranking of some description and betting takes place on each and every game in some way or the other in that cards are dealt, betting takes place and there is a result at the end of each game.

All Casinos have an age restriction to allowing players, this restriction applies to gambling of every description, and presently there are a huge number of Countries that no longer allow gambling within their jurisdiction. The onus is on the player to make sure that they reside in a Country or State that allows gambling prior to registering with any Casino, Poker Room or Bingo Hall.

Although some games may not be played with a full deck of cards, these cards are all taken from a full 52 card deck which consist of four suits namely Diamond, Clubs, Hearts and Spades, and there are thirteen ranks per suit.

Hard cash is not accepted at any poker table unless this is played in a home environment – Chips will be given to players for the equivalent of their cash, and each game may only permit certain value chips, so again it is up to the players to check the table.

Forced bets (Ante) are usually required prior to the start of any game which ultimately means the the player voluntarily and knowingly accepted the rules of that game.

Experienced players take things a step further by putting into play their knowledge of the game by often calling a bluff. This player may not actually have a good hand, but playing the bluff he gets to know what his opponent are about and how to get them into thinking that he has a good hand and therefore folds.

There are three basic rules that are set for for different tables games and how they are played. Firstly you have a Limit table where the round of betting is restricted to a pre-determined amount, secondly you have the Pot Limit where the maximum amount any player is able to bet is equal to the amount in the pot. Thirdly, and this one may say is for the experienced player is the No Limit table where the player is at liberty to bet an equal amount that they have on the table.
