There are many varieties of poker. In each variety comes some variation of betting. Here are some general things true of most all poker games:

* When it’s your turn to play, if nobody else has made a bet, then you only have 2 choices: Bet or Check.

* When it’s your turn to play, if someone ahead of you has bet, then you have 3 choices: Call, Raise, or Fold.

* Almost all variations of poker require some sort of bet before the game even starts. “Stud” varieties of poker, (like 7-card stud), usually have every player put in a small amount into the pot called an “Ante”. Other variations, (like Texas Hold ’em), require 2 players only putting up a bet called “Blinds”. 1 player to the dealer’s left puts in a 1/2-sized bet called the “Small Blind”, and the player to his left puts a full-sized bet called the “Big Blind”.

Beyond that, just type, “How do you play poker” into Google. There are tons of sites that will walk you through the specifics.


I tell you what, ANYONE who tells you that learning the betting part of poker is the, “hardest part of poker to learn”, doesn’t know the first thing about playing poker. Anyone who would say such a thing has the sole purpose of answering questions just to SPAM us with what certainly must be a TOTAL CRAP website based on the garbage they spewed here.
