Some types of poker give the players all the cards in their hands (like 5 card draw or Stud Poker) and other types give a few cards in hand and the rest on the table (like Omaha and Texas Hold’em).
The players are competing to gain the best combination of cards, but it isn’t always that the best hand wins. Players are allowed to “bluff” and a substantial portion of the game is being able to read the other players and their reactions in order to call their bluff or fold the hand.
Poker, more so than blackjack, is a game of probability and likelihood. Due to the fact that there only are 52 cards available one can come to conclusions and make decisions based on facts. Based on the cards that you do see you can deduct the probability of winning the hand.
