poker

Poker is a game that may take a day or years to learn, but a lifetime to master. There are many variations of the game. Poker is a game of chance and strategy as wel as close observation. It involves some psychology, such as reading the players around you to decide when to fold or bluff, or knowing when to call an opponent’s bluff. Once you understand the basic rules, hands, and vocabulary of the game, start focusing on strategy in order to master poker.

black-jack

BLACKJACK is a casino banked game, meaning that players compete against the house rather than each other. The objective is to get a hand total of closer to 21 than the dealer without going over 21

hearts

HEARTS is a trick taking game in which the object is to avoid winning tricks containing hearts; the queen of spades is even more to be avoided. The game first appeared at the end of the nineteenth century and is now popular in various forms in many countries

durak

The game DURAK consists of a series of attacks in which one player leads one or more cards and another player (the defender) may try to beat them, in which case they are discarded from the game. If unable or unwilling to beat the attacking cards, the defender has to pick them up. The aim is to get rid of all one's cards, and the last player left holding cards is the fool. One of the punishments for the fool is the duty to deal the next hand, which is considered menial work. Games of this type are played not only in Russia but in many East European countries, and especially in North-East Europe: Poland, Finland, the Baltic states and Belarus

spades

SPADES is a plain-trick game in which spades are always trumps. It is most often played as a partnership game by four players, but there are also versions for three, two or six players.

baccarat

BACCARAT is a banking game available in casinos worldwide. The aim of the player is to form a hand whose point value is nearer to 9 than the hand of the banker. Pip cards count as face value, pictures and tens as zero, and only the last digit of the total counts (so that for example seven plus six is worth 3, not 13)

war

WAR, a relative of Barbu, is played in various parts of the world. It is known in France, Belgium and Italy and is particularly popular in Portugal, Russia, Turkey, Colombia and Brazil. In all these places it is known by the English name King as well as by a variety of local names

bridge

BRIDGE is a partnership game requiring four players. Each player sits opposite his partner at a card table (in this age of computers the concept could be a simulated). Bridge is played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards.
