Poker - Types of Poker
There are 2 different types of Poker games: Draw Poker and Stud Poker.
In Draw Poker you can draw new cards from the deck after the initial cards are dealt, your cards are usually dealt face down, and you bet after receiving your initial cards and after you draw new cards.
In Stud Poker games, you play with your initially dealt cards, some cards are face down and some are face up, and you bet after each new face up card is dealt and after the last face down card is dealt.
Both of these types of games can involve either 5 cards or 7 and can be played in 1 of 2 ways: high or high/low. When a Poker game is played high, the highest hand wins the pot. When a poker game is played high/low, the pot is split between the person with the highest hand and the person with the lowest hand.
