Poker is a card game where the goal is to win bets by collecting the highest possible poker combination, using 4 (the old classic version), 2, or 5 cards, or forcing all opponents to stop participating in the game. The game is played with fully or partially closed cards. The specific rules may vary depending on the type of poker.
