Draw Poker is the rawest form of poker. Usually a new poker player learns it first. The original form of Draw poker has lost its former popularity and it can be seldom seen in today’s casinos. However, as a poker player, one should learn all the important rules of this game. The new poker players should, at least for few days, play draw poker games. In fact, Draw poker has all the fundamentals of poker games that anyone should know before entering into the poker world.
Because it is the intention of the management to maintain a spirit of fairness, the house reserves the right to make decisions to that end, even when a strict adherence to the poker rules would dictate a different outcome.
The main thing that a poker player must do during the Draw poker game is to build the best five card hand from just two dealings of the poker deck. The players may discard or throw away the cards after the first deal and after the first betting round. They may throw away all the cards or some few of the cards that they have got at the first round. After that they can also replace their hands with new cards. No cards are dealt face in Draw Poker games. The other players can only see the cards during the showdown.
Here are Some Few Other Rules of Draw Poker
- In Draw Poker the dealer is generally designated.
- During the Draw Poker, all the players must pay the ante. They will be qualified by this.
- After that the dealer takes care of the cards and face down them to each of the players. Usually the deal begins from the left of the dealer. It continues until all the players have got five cards.
- After the card distribution the players are given a chance to pick their cards. The player on the dealer’s then starts the betting round and places a bet. He can also pass of fold.
- Now the game goes to the next player and he is given the chance to make a bet or fold. If the previous player passes then he can also choose to pass or to place a bet. In case when the previous player makes a bet and the next player tries to stay in the round, then they should place any outstanding bets. The players then may raise the bet if they wish.
After that the betting continues to the left
The players can now throw away any or all their cards if they wish. All the cards that are thrown away by the players are placed as face down and they are collected by the dealer. After that the dealer moves to the left dealing out replacement cards that are face down to all the players. After that betting takes place once again as like before.
