“One of the healthiest ways to gamble is with
a spade and a package of garden seeds.”
— Dan Bennett
“Poker” is not like “chess” where a clear picture appears from just one word. Besides “video poker” and “poker runs”, which hijack the word into unrelated territory, there are many forms of poker. These different games feature some cards face-up, some face-down; sometimes you get more cards all at the same time, sometimes you get one at a time; sometimes you share pots; sometimes you try to make high hands, sometimes you try to make low. Different poker games have many different features.
