The most popular card game in the world is poker. Specifically a variant known as Texas hold ‘em. Players compete against each other using various betting strategies, wagering that their poker hand will beat the others. The hold ‘em part of the name comes from the fact that you, as a player, don’t have any choice over your hand. You are dealt two cards face down (known as hole cards) and then five community cards face up that are available for every player. The best five-card poker hand from any combination of the seven comprises your hand.
