Dave's Guide to Poker Night
Greetings, all, and welcome to
Dave's Guide to Poker Night! First, a quick look at what
this place is all about - there's a lot of
poker out there these
days, and Dave's Guide only covers some aspects of it - this isn't
for hardcore tournament players, it's not about TV or celebrity
poker, and we definitely cover a lot more than just no-limit Texas Hold'em! Instead, this is about poker with friends - poker
as a pastime, not a profession, to be enjoyed over the course of a
night as entertainment. Don't come here to learn how to win
big by fleecing your opponents - hopefully what you learn here
will be how to play with the same group of friends, family, or
coworkers for years, having fun and not turning them into
This guide presents the
way that I've found are the easiest to learn and most enduringly
entertaining styles of poker play. From the house rules and
betting systems to the games, the material here is designed to
keep poker night accessible to beginners and remain entertaining
for experienced players. It's not THE way to do things; it's
just the way I've found that works best! I hope it can work
for you, too.
In Dave's Guide, you'll
find the following sections:

- These are the overall rules for how poker night works, in
general. All the games work underneath the house rules,
which cover things like betting, order of hands, how the
dealership changes, and so on.
- A solid variety of interesting games, some more akin to bingo than traditional poker, that'll keep the
players on their toes! Nonstop Hold'em does get
boring after a while, ya know...
