Draw Poker Rules

This is the most popular poker game in Europe although quite rare in casino and tournament play. At the beginning of each hand every player pays into the pot. Play begins with each player being dealt five cards, one at a time. The first betting round occurs at this point, starting with the player to the dealer's left. The first player can choose to pass or bet. If the first player choose to pass the second player must choose between to pass or to bet. If no players bet the hand is over, and the cards will be dealt again. Players must ante up again so the pot will be larger next hand. If first player choose to bet the second player can "check", "fold", "call" or "raise". Checking means passing this betting round without placing a bet. Calling means betting the same as what the previous player has bet. Raising means raising whatever the call amount of the previous player was. If more than one player remains after this round, the "draw" phase begins. Each player replaces as many cards as he wants. A second betting round occurs after the draw phase, followed by a showdown if more than one player remains. After the second round of betting, all remaining players turn over their cards and the best hand wins. The winning player collects the pot.
