Since I'm amazed that a lot of people don't know how to play poker, though I've played since I was like, 10, I figured I'd help y'all learn how to play so you can go to casinos and lose your money. Sounds good, eh? Alright, I'm going to teach you how to play: 5 Card Draw, 5 Card Stud, Texas Hold 'Em, and Blackjack, which some people consider a kind of poker.
Note: I wouldn't try to cheat anyone out of money at betting games like these, they can get mad. Very mad. Don't try it, be truthful and play nice, cheating spoils the game.
Note: Where I say to bet/post blinds/ante, if you aren't betting, don't. Ok? Get ready to learn!
Step 1: What you'll need:
To play most types of poker, you are going to need:
1 Deck of Cards, brand doesn't matter, though I prefer Bicycles. Note: You may need more than one deck if you are playing with a lot of people.
At least 3 friends, if you are playing for money; if not, it is possible to play by yourself, but not very fun. 1 friend should do, but the more, the merrier.
Optional: Card table, but regular tables work, and you need somewhere to put your cards.
Optional: Money, if you are betting.
