In a typical game of poker, the lowest hand is called a low hand. This is a hand that contains four of the same card suits and no tens or aces. In some games, the ace may be treated as the lowest card. When determining a low hand, all players look at their cards.
In most games of poker, players can only bet a certain amount. Usually, this limit is doubled after a draw and at the end of the betting interval in stud. The player who has the highest hand wins the pot. This is true for both pot-limit and no-limit poker. This is also true for seven-card stud and five-card draw.
The player who first deals the hand will be called the “dealer.” In casual play, the dealer button is a white plastic disk that marks the nominal dealer. Usually, the dealer is rotated amongst the players in the table. As the game progresses, the dealer will deal the cards in a clockwise motion around the table.
The first player to bet is called the “first bettor”. In every betting interval, a player with the highest poker combination is called the first bettor. In the first betting interval, the first bettor must bet a minimum amount that is equal to the amount of chips contributed by the players before him. After this bet, the first player may check or raise and may continue the bet in subsequent betting intervals.
