Poker is a popular type of card game in which players bet on the value of the card combination ("hand") in their possession, by placing a bet into a central pot. The winner is the one who holds the hand with the highest value according to an established hand rankings hierarchy, or otherwise the player who remains in the hand after all others have folded.
Poker has many variations, all following a similar pattern of play. Depending on the variant, hands may be formed using cards, which are concealed from others, or from a combination of concealed cards and community cards. [Wikipedia]
There are many varieties of Poker, including Draw Poker, Stud Poker, and Community Card Poker.
