Publisher's Summary

In this audiobook you will find the history of poker.... Between 1830 and 1845, poker was played more, by an increasing number of players. It was during this time that the draw was then introduced. However, the term draw was already known in poker's English counterpart, Brag. The addition of the draw and the flush combination boosted the pleasure of the game, thus, a second betting interval was made.

It was in 1864 when the combination of straight sequence or rotation was introduced while playing poker. With the addition of the straight, an additional rule was introduced where a straight and a flush combination will undeniably outrank a full combination.

The addition of straight in poker was an exhilarating development because, as experts say, without straights and straight flushes, the only highest possible hand would be four aces or four kings and an ace kicker.

In the poker world, this type of combination at hand is not just unbeatable, but cannot be matched or tied.

In this audio you will find the meaning and essence of poker.... The poker game is a game everybody loves. It is played in every card room across the world. With its growing popularity it even invaded the Internet.

Basically, a poker game is the most popular in a class of games known as the vying game where players who fully conceal or partially conceal their cards then make bets into a central pot. Poker games end when the player with the best combination of cards wins.

Like any typical vying game, one or more players are asked to put a primary amount of money into the pot before the cards are dealt. And like most card games, the cards are shuffled, and then cut. The correct numbers of cards are dealt face down to the players.

In this audio you will find strategy for poker.... Poker strategy is a decisive move basically because playing poker involves more psychological activities. A player should know how to read the cards of other players and must be well adept in reading the actions and reactions of his playmates. The best poker strategy is to know how to interpret body language, actions, and talk of the players. Both of these things can divulge a lot of the strengths and weaknesses of the hands.

A good poker strategy also requires a player to vary his poker approach. This means that there should be times that you know how to tactically bluff a game. This, in turn, will make other players have a hard time reading your cards or predicting your next move.

In this audiobook you will find all you need to know, from the history of poker to online poker, and of course strip poker!
