Poker has many variations. For instance, there are variations of the game where there are only two players, but ten players can play simultaneously. The higher-valued card wins. A player is able to get the best hand value by combining the high card with an ace. In addition to the basic rules of poker, there are a number of variants, which are described later in this chapter. The most common game of Poker involves five to seven players.
In some variants, a minimum hand is required to make the first bet, which is sometimes a pair of jacks. Then, the players place their bets into a pot, which is called the pot. This pot contains the winnings of all the rounds. In addition, each player is entitled to bet on each of his opponents’ hands. But in most cases, this requirement does not apply. The minimum hand is a pair of jacks.
In most variations of the game, poker chips are used instead of playing cards. If there are seven or more players, a supply of poker chips should be provided to everyone. Poker chips come in different colors and values. White chips are the lowest, while red chips are the highest. Seven Card Stud Poker is the most popular variation of Stud Poker.
