Poker is basically a card game, in poker players have to cover cards and make wagers into a middle pot.  Poker is an indoor game; it is played in the card rooms and in home as well. Poker was started almost in the end of the 19th century. According to the English media Poker is played by four players and 20 cards. Poker game is the crucial part of the culture of America and Britain. Poker became very popular in the Twenty first century. Online Poker tournaments and the conception of hole card camera give Poker game to everlasting life. The live coverage of Poker events and tournaments provide chance to other people to take part in the Poker Game from different regions of the world. The winner in the Poker is the person who holds the hand with the utmost value according to an established hand positions hierarchy, or otherwise the player who leftovers “in the hand” after all others have folded (a player who makes an un-called bet).

Poker has a number of variations, all following a related model of play. Depending on the alternative, hands may be twisted using cards which are hidden from others, or from a mixture of hidden cards and community cards. In casual game, the right to deal a hand generally spins among the players and is marked by a token known as ‘dealer’ button (or “buck”). In a nightclub or casino, a house dealer retains the cards for each hand, but the button (normally a white plastic disk) is turning around clockwise among the players to point out a supposed dealer to settle on the order of gambling. One or more players are required to make compulsory bets to make an early bet for which the players will confront. The dealer shuffles the cards, cuts, and deals the appropriate number of cards to the players one at a time. Cards may be dealt either face-up or face-down, depending on the poker being played. At any time throughout a betting round, if a gambler makes a bet, contestants are required to fold over, call or raise their cards. If one player bets and no opponents want to challenge the bet, the hand ends right away, the bettor is awarded the pot, no cards are needed to be shown, and the next hand starts. This opportunity of winning a pot without showing a hand makes bluffing feasible.

Bluffing is a major element of poker, one that differentiates it from other vying games and from other games that make use of poker hand rankings. At the end of the last betting round, if more than one player leftovers, there is an argument, in which the players show their previously hidden cards and evaluate their hands. The player with the maximum hand according to the poker rules being played wins the pot.
