Poker Rules

If you are new to Texas Holdem or any poker variation, make sure you read over the rules before plunking down your hard earned cash at the table. The first reason is obvious enough. If you do not have a good grasp of the rules, you are bound to lose some chips learning them the hard way. There is a second, more subtle reason though. Nothing screams fish at a poker table like some player asking a simple rules question. While there are some rules that vary from room to room on tournament formats or blind structures, the basic rules of each poker variation will be universal. Learn the basics by reading our poker rules articles, and feel free to bookmark them to use as a reference in the future.
