Our poker rules section breaks down the ins and outs of every popular form of poker. The rules for these games should not be confused with casino (house) games such as Pai Gow, Caribbean Stud and Three Card Poker. While these games are technically poker variations, there are not the type of tables that you would find in a poker room or on a poker site (unless you were in the casino section).
We have written these articles in an attempt to make them as clear, simple, and easy to understand as possible. The most widely recognized game on this list is, without a doubt, Texas Hold’em. First coming to large, mainstream popularity in 2003 when Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker Main Event while being broadcast on ESPN, the game only continued to grow from there. Today you will find this particular game available in virtually every casino that offers a poker room.
Learning how to play several different types of poker will enable you to win with many different skill sets. Beyond simply understanding how a game works, you may end up realizing that you are better at and are even more interested in a game that you hadn’t previously considered playing at all. Become familiar with a variety of different strategies and rules and you will be able to play in mixed games, more tournaments, and will become a more well rounded and skilled poker player as a whole.
