In poker, when the remaining players do not call the all-in bet, the hands are turned face-up and are called “showdowns.” A showdown takes place only when there are callers in the last round of betting and if someone goes “all-in” before the last round of betting. Poker has a side pot in addition to the main pot. The side pot is created from additional money that is bet by remaining players. If one of the players goes “all-in,” they are only eligible to win the pot that he contributed to.
To start the game, players must place mandatory bets, called blinds and ante. Each player receives two starting cards from the dealer, and each player is required to place a forced bet, called the “small blind,” or “big blind.” In most forms of poker, the first player to post a blind (small bet) must also post a big blind (big blind), and one should call the “big blind” after the small bet is made.
The best hand is the “nuts,” which is a pair of 7s. In this scenario, the player with the best hand wins the pot. In poker, a player’s hand can include an overcard or a pair of nines. The “nut” is a high card, but this can change throughout the game. In addition, there are many kinds of poker hands. If the player has an overcard or two, the nut is the highest hand.
