Poker is a game of chance (with some psychology and reading skills thrown in). There are many different poker variants, but they all boil down to being dealt cards and betting over a series of rounds. The highest hand wins the pot.

Players put in an ante (the amount varies by game and stakes) before they get dealt cards. Once everyone’s antes are in, betting begins. When it’s your turn to act, you can either call (match the last bet), raise or fold.

If you’re playing Pot Limit poker, the maximum amount you can raise is the size of the current pot (including any bets made by other players). This is an extra rule that helps prevent players from getting too greedy or going broke.

A player’s position at the table is also an important factor. Usually the later positions have more opportunities to manipulate the pot, so you’re better off playing a wider range of hands from those spots.

Lastly, it’s important to only gamble with money you’re willing to lose. You should always have a bankroll that allows you to play the games you enjoy without risking too much of your hard-earned cash. It’s a good idea to track your wins and losses so you can learn how to better manage your poker bankroll as you become more proficient in the game. Good luck!
