Poker is a card game played by players. Each player is dealt a hand of seven cards and the player with the highest hand wins the pot. Some variations of poker allow players to make multiple bets to win the pot. These are called “forced bets” and they may come in three forms: antes, blinds, and bring-ins.
Players begin by setting up their hands on the table, one hand being farthest from the dealer, another hand nearest the dealer and a third hand near the dealer. Players then announce whether they are playing and the number of royalties. Royalties are determined before the game and will be given to the winning player. This game can be played with as many as 8 players.
Poker players often complain about having bad luck, missing flops, and being suckered out.
