Overview

Besides being the most popular card game in the world (you can get up a game in most any country), poker is also one of the easiest to learn. With step-by-step instructions you will quickly master the basics (rules, terminology, ranking of hands), and then go on to the finer points, the finessing, which is really the name of the game.

Sit in on a sample game and learn when to "open," when to "fold," and when to "pass," "raise," and "call." Know in advance the odds of making different kinds of hands -- drawing to an inside straight, the chances for a straight flush, and so on. Become adept at the art of "bluffing." Fortunes have been made without as much as a pair of deuces in the hand.

In addition to the standard rules for stud and draw poker, there are those for dozens of variations of the game, such as Spit in the Ocean, Screwy Louie, and One-Card Poker.

A solid handbook for the beginning player or for those who want to put a finer edge on their skills
