An iron stick, used to move logs whilst on a fire, in the intent of making them burn more vigorously. Poker is a family of card games that share betting rules and usually… (but not always) hand rankings. Poker games differ in how the cards are dealt, how hands may be formed, whether the high or low hand wins the pot in a showdown (in some games, the pot is split between the high and low hands), limits on bets and how many rounds of betting are allowed.
When the person in the betting position before you places a wager, three options are available: call, raise or fold. When you call, you are matching that wager, raising …means that you increase the bet and a fold means that you yield your cards and wait for a better day.
A straight is a combination of 5 following cards in Poker. For instance 5,6,7,8,9 is a straight.
The origin of the word Poker is also well debated. Most of the dictionaries and game historians say that it comes from an eighteenth-century French game, poque. However, there… are other references to pochspiel, which is a German game. In pochspiel, there is an element of bluffing, where players would indicate whether they wanted to pass or open by rapping on the table and saying, "Ich Poche!" Some say it may even have derived come the Hindu word, pukka. Yet another possible explanation for the word poker, is that it came from a version of an underworld slang word, "poke," a term used by pickpockets. Cardsharps who used the 20-card cheating game to relieve a sucker from his poke may have used that word among themselves, adding an r to make it "poker." The thought was that if the sharps used the word "poker" in front of their victims, those wise to the underworld slang would not surmise the change. Why did he call it Poker? Researchers looked into games of other countries to see if there was any game whose name sounded anything like "poker." They came up with an eighteenth-century French game called poque, a German game that involves a certain amount of bluffing called Pochspiel, and there's even a suggestion that the word derived from a Hindu word: pukka. Well, more realistically, the word "poker" probably finds its origins in the underworld of thieves. Some of the card hustlers may have already been using the expression since "poke" was a slang word used by pickpockets. It is believed that card hustlers, who emerged from that same underworld to cheat unsuspecting opponents, used the word in relation to their card-playing victims. The "r" might have been added to throw off players who were wise to the underworld slang. The reason Poker has such seedy origins has mainly to do with the fact that it is a simple game (sometimes even a quick game, depending on the version you're playing), it involves an element of cheating, and it's played for money.
Chinese is a game is played with four players but can be played three handed or heads up. Each player is dealt 13 cards from a standard 52-card deck. Players must arrange thei…r cards into three poker hands: the front (three cards), the middle (five cards), and the back (five cards). Straights and flushes do not count for the front. The back five cards must be the strongest hand of the three, the middle five must be second strongest, and the front three must be the weakest. Another way to play is to have the middle hand be played with a deuce to seven lowball hand (with the best hand being 7, 5, 4, 3, 2). Once arranged, the cards are then placed face down on the table until all players have set their hands. Players turn the cards face up, and the money is awarded in terms of "points". Points are the stakes at which the game is being played and can be set at any amount. Each player compares their hands to each individual player. The players compare corresponding hands. Players win two points if they win two out of three hands and additional points are often awarded for winning all three hands against your opponents, which is called getting "scooped." When players tie hands there are different ways of scoring. For example if one player wins two hands and ties the third they win 3 points instead of the normal 4 for scooping. Another aspect of the game is royalties, which are automatic rewards for making certain types of hands, such as straight flushes.

Chinese poker - as I play the game with several friends, is not the same. It consists of 13 cards dealt to each player, who then make 3 different hands - a hand of 3 car…ds and 2 hands containing 5 cards. Depending on the exact game - the hands can be "high/low/high", "high/high/high" etc. The game I commonly play is "high/low/high" and the 5 card high hand must have a higher ranked poker hand than the 3 card hand. Typically the middle hand - or lowball hand - is played with a 2-7 low meaning straights, flushes, etc. are bad. The lowest hand is not something like A-2-3-4-5 as it would make a straight, but 2-3-4-5-7 instead. Here would be a typical set of 13 cards I chose at random: 3 card hand: AhAsKd 5 card low hand: 2s-3d-4s-5h-7c 5 card high hand: 6s-6c-6h-Th-Td

In poker the chips have a value, this value indicates how much that particular chip is worth. There are "Live Casino Chips", which value is a reflection of how much money they… are worth. (For instance a $5 chip is worth $5). There are also "Tournament Chips", their value is a reflection of how much a certain "Tournament Chip" is worth. Tournament chips do not have a cash value, their value is only relevant to the tournament that is being played. (For instance a 50,000 points chip is NOT worth $50,000)
An ante in poker is used to force the action on the table, just like the blinds. Only the blinds are higher then the ante. Ante's are frequently used in later stages of tour…naments & SitnGo's to force action. Action is forced this way because the pot is bigger pre-flop, attracting more players to bet or raise to claim the pot without going to the flop and the ante's are also decreasing players' stack when not being in the blinds, making them play more often if they don't want to get short stacked by folding blinds/ante's.
