Some standard rules
A maximum of four bets, which includes one bet and three raises, are allowed for each betting round
per player. The term cap is used to describe the final raise in a round since betting is then capped and no one can
make another raise. Once capped, players will have the option of calling or folding only. Folding can be done at
any stage of the game. The action of folding basically pushes the player cards to the dealer. The player would not

Apart from the fold option, a player could also get the option of “Check”, in which the player can
pass by his/her turn without placing a bet. This option would not always be available to the player, and depends on
the actions taken by the previous player in the hand. The player HAS TO equal the amount of the bet placed by any
other players for each round in the hand in order to maintain a stake in the pot.
Pocker is typically played "table stakes", meaning only the chips in play at the beginning of each
hand may be used throughout the hand. This means that a player cannot get additional funds from the cashier while
he is in the midst of a game. The table stakes rule has an application called the "All-In" rule, which states that
a player cannot be forced to forfeit a hand because the player does not have enough chips to call a bet.
- Exceptions to the value of betting
Exceptions to the value of betting in each round:player who does not have enough chips to call a bet, but still wishes to be involved in the hand, is declared All-In. The player is eligible for the portion of the pot to the point of his final wager. All further action involving other players takes place in a "side pot", which is unavailable to the player who has gone All-In.
