The most common game played by poker players is Texas hold ’em (also called hold ’em or simply poker). In this variant of the card game, each player seeks to form the best five-card poker hand from two hole cards and five community cards.

Poker is a game of strategy, skill and chance. It is also a social experience. Having a good knowledge of poker etiquette and unwritten rules can improve the atmosphere and play at the table for you and your opponents, while also helping you win more money.

Keeping your stack in full view:

All players are required to keep their chips visible above the table. Higher denomination chips should be easily visible, and players are not allowed to cover them or hide them with their hands in a way that makes them impossible to see.


Keeping your hand concealed:
When playing poker, players use their hand to try and trick other players into thinking that they have a better hand than they do. One of the most popular ways to bluff is to hide your stack of chips in order to make the rest of the table think you have a weak hand, and then raise with it.

Making bad beats:

When playing poker, players will usually have a few bad beats throughout the course of the game. Having a good sense of humor and being polite will help you stay positive in difficult spots, and can also make the experience more enjoyable for everyone. It’s especially important to avoid complaining or blaming the dealer when you are dealing, as it only causes confusion and disrupts the flow of the game.
