There are many different rules that govern poker. One of these is the “kitty,” which is the fund that is built by a player who voluntarily puts money into the pot after a few raises. The kitty belongs to all players equally, and it is used to buy food and decks of cards. The kitty is divided among those who remain in the game at the end of the game, so that all players are equally represented in the money.
The lowest possible hand is a pair of five cards, or five of a kind, with an ace. If there are more than two players with pairs, the higher one wins. In some games, the ace is also the lowest card. In these situations, the highest hand is the high pair. If there are more than two players with a pair, the highest pair wins. If a player has a pair of aces, he/she wins the pot.
After a round of betting, the remaining players must choose a winning hand. If the remaining players have the same hand, they may choose to fold or raise. A player who folds is considered to have “dropped” from the game. As a result, he or she may no longer compete for the pot. The winning hand will be revealed at the end of the game, and the winner is crowned. This hand is called “all in.”
