Poker is a card game of chance and skill where players try to build the strongest hand with their two personal cards plus the five community cards that everyone can use. It is a very addictive game that can also give you an insight into human nature and how people react under pressure. It is a great social game and you can play it with friends or online.

When you start playing poker you will need to understand the rules and the betting. Each player has to place chips (representing money) in the pot before their turn to bet on their cards. This is to encourage competition and help raise the total amount of money in the pot.

After everyone has placed their chips in the pot the dealer will deal a second set of cards to all the players. This is called the flop. After this the players will start to make their final decisions about whether they want to call, raise or fold their hands.

Observe experienced players to learn from their mistakes and successful moves. Identify the reasons behind their actions and apply these principles to your own gameplay to develop quick instincts.
