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.

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
No limit Texas hold'em, probably the most played poker game on the world.

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)
A buy-in is the amount of money you use to buy poker chips with.
A Jack, also Knave, is a playing card with a picture of a young man on it. The usual rank of a jack, within its suit, is as if it were an 11 (that is, between the queen and th…e 10). As early as the mid-1500s the card was known in English decks as the Knave (meaning a male servant of royalty). It became Jack in 1864, when Samuel Hart, an English cardmaker, published a deck using J instead of Kn for the lowest court card. In poker a jack is counted as face value, meaning it does not have a numerical value. Play or learn about poker by visiting the related link:

There are 6 Types of Poker games: 1. Texas Hold 'Em Played in the World Series of Poker, Texas Hold 'Em is easily the most popular poker game in America today. In Texa…s Hold 'Em, players are dealt two "pocket" or "hole cards" then wait for 5 community cards to be revealed. Betting takes place in four rounds: once after the hole cards are dealt, once after the first three community cards are revealed (referred to as "the flop"), once after the fourth community card is revealed ("the turn") and lastly after the fifth community card is flipped ("the river"). Players must make their best hands with any combination of 5 cards (their hole cards and the communal). 2. Omaha Omaha is another type of Hold 'Em that can be played by 2-10 players at a time. Like Texas Hold 'Em, there are four rounds of betting, but unlike that version, each player is dealt four hole cards and the five community cards are immediately revealed. Players must make their best 5-card hands from two of their hole cards and three of the common. 3. 7-Card Stud In 7-Card Stud, each player is dealt 7 cards, three down and four up. Players must make best possible 5-card hand from their 7. 4. 5-Card Draw Each player is dealt 5 cards, but on the initial go around, the player may choose to trade in up to 3 of them. 5. High / Low Chicago This stud game can be played for the highest hand or the lowest. In High Chicago, the player with the highest spade face-down wins half the pot. In Low Chicago, the player with the lowest spade face-down wins half the pot. The other half of the pot is won by the player with the best hand. If someone, however, has the best hand and the winning spade (high or low, depending on version), that player will win the entire pot. This game can be added to, and played simultaneously with, many other poker variations. 6. Follow the Queen This is a 7-card stud poker game in which the wild card is designated to be the next exposed card after a queen is flipped. If no queens are flipped, there are no wild cards that hand. Source: by playing on dreamcasinosportsbook.com
