As with most card games, in poker, players hold cards and try to assimilate a winning combination out of them. Each player has the opportunity to fold, check, bet, call, or raise to an opponent’s bet. Chips are usually placed in a pot that is either won or split by active players in each round. Poker is the most popular card game in the world with millions of active players.
Most people play the most popular variant, Texas Hold’em, however, there are plenty of variations that can be split into categories.
