Stage 1 lessons
What is poker?
If you don’t know anything about it yet, this is probably the page where you should start to find out what poker is in general, particularly the variant of Texas Holdem.
The rules of poker
If you do not know them, this is where your learning begins because it is an essential step, and it is the minimum to be able to play, even for free on our game, and all the more so if you want to bet real money.
Do you know the card combinations (or poker hands) and their order of strength? From the pair to the royal flush, we explain everything to you. Learn or print to have it close to you when you play.
The definitions of the terms are used because it would be a shame not to understand anything and for others to see that you are a beginner and therefore try to pluck you.
Tournaments are often where new players start to learn poker, especially with free tournaments like Freerolls. Let’s see the specifics of this type of game.
Sit & Go
Sit & Go are, in fact, mini-tournaments that are played with a predefined number of players (often 10, sometimes less), and the game starts as soon as the expected number of players is reached.
The Cash Game
The cash game is probably the very essence of poker. Here you lose or win real money with each hand played, which is why this structure is rather not recommended for beginners.
A variant of hold’em with 4 hole cards instead of 2, in which we also distinguish Omaha Hi / Lo, a variation in which we can win with the highest hand or with the lowest.
A variant totally different from the previous ones and just as exciting, although not very widespread and not played in French rooms for lack of legislation.
