Poker is undoubtedly one of the most widely played games in the world. There is fun involved, along with some hard tricks and misses. Everybody wants to master this game since it requires skill, tactics, and knowledge of the rules. Players prefer experimenting with new methods and moves to turn luck in their favour. Not only that, but they also try to use their best hand at the time when they feel the opponent is weak. The player with the largest hand wins the pot and takes all the collections home.

Every game requires a strategy, trick, and last but not least, luck. Winning is important but winning grandly is what players seek. There are websites for people to download poker game or even play them online. The most popular ones are:

  1. Texas Hold’em: The game involves a deck of 52 cards. Each player gets two cards face down from the dealer. There are five community cards placed at the centre of the table. The best five-card poker hand combination wins.

  2. Pot Limit Omaha: This is quite like Texas Hold’em. The prime difference is that players of Omaha start with four cards instead of two to form the best five-card combination.

  3. Seven Card Stud: This is played with two to eight players. There are no community cards. Players start with three cards: two face down and one face up. Eventually, each player receives seven cards throughout the course – three face down and four face up. Make use of five cards that are available for the poker hand.
