My name is Rick, and I’m not a professional poker player. I’m just a guy who fell in love with the game and decided to dive into poker strategy and mechanics. And you get to come with me.
I’ve spent countless hours collecting insights and researching poker strategy on overly complicated poker blogs and forums, so you don’t have to. Just follow these videos.

Poker isn’t just one game, but a whole genre of card games played against one or more opponents. Whether you’re here after watching Kakegurui or playing Red Dead Redemption, the things mentioned in this series will be applicable to all styles of poker. The most common style of poker is Texas Hold’em and that’s also the style we’ll use throughout this course.

So, you and your friends all sit down at a table to play. One of you is chosen as the dealer for the round and after shuffling the cards every player is dealt two cards.
Players then bet on whether their hand is the best.

When you have weak cards, the goal is to convince your opponents that you have a strong hand, and have them fold an otherwise winning hand.
When you have a strong hand, the goal is to have them think they can beat you, so they bet a large sum of chips for you to win in a showdown. Meaning you make the most of your good hand.
Read that again. It’s the absolute essence of poker strategy.

Now, a round of poker is divided into four parts.
First is the ‘Pre-flop’, when all you know is the two cards in your hand. ‘Flop’, when an additional 3 cards are drawn from the deck and placed on the table for all to see. ‘Turn’ when another card is drawn and placed in the middle. And lastly ‘the River’, which is when the last card is drawn and placed in front of you all.

This means that by the end of the round you will have a total of 7 cards at your disposal. The 2 cards in your hand and the 5 on the table, which all players can use.
Your ultimate hand is going to be the best possible 5 card combination of these 7 cards.

When it’s your turn to act, you can choose to either fold, call or bet:

Folding means you don’t wish to take further part in the round. You give up your cards and the round continues with any remaining players. Usually done when you’re dealt a bad hand and don’t think you can convince the other players to give up their hand without seeing yours.

Calling means you put down the money required to stay in the round. This means you match the highest ‘bet’ of the round before you. If no one has made a bet yet, calling would mean you match the amount of the big blind. This is usually done when you think you might have something, and wish to see if the three cards of the flop will give you anything to combine your hand with.

Raising/betting means you go even further, and raise the cost of staying in the round.
If no one has made a bet before you, this is called a bet. If someone has already made a bet before you and increased the amount from the big blind, your new bet is called a ‘raise’. This is usually done when you have great cards and wish to build up a big pot for you to win.

It’s important to note, that all of these actions may be used to lie to your opponent and trick them into thinking they can read the strength of your hand from your actions.
Trying to deceive your opponents like that is called ‘bluffing’ – something we will cover later in this series.

Now remember – This is a series and so in the next video we’re going to talk ‘hand rankings’. What beats what? I’ll tell you.
