  4. 2.1 One player game

    2.1.1 How do I play ?

    At the beginning of the game you get $100. You draw five cards and decide which ones you want to keep. After doing this you draw new cards for those you did not want to keep. The game now looks if you got any poker hand and gives cash according to the kind of hand you got (see scoring). Now you start over, drawing five cards, deciding which ones you want to keep ... The game ends if you can't pay for another round anymore or if you close the kpoker window.

    2.1 Two player game

    The two player game is very different to the one player game. There are four phases: you begin to draw cards, then you bet some money, after that you exchange your cards, then you raise and finally you will see the cards of the other player and the winner will get all the money.

    2.1.1 Draw

    You will begin the game with $100. After clicking on the main button "draw" you will get five cards. That's all in this phase.

    2.1.2 Bet

    Now you decide if your cards are good or not. If they are you bet some money - at least $5 and maximal $20. Just click on the "+$5" and similar buttons.

    2.1.3 Exchange cards

    Now you have to decide which cards you want to keep. Click on them. Please, if you have a royal flush then don't exchange any cards ;) When you think you are ready then click again on "draw" - you will probably get new cards. Perhaps you do not get new cards - then the computer player has quite good cards (or at least not very bad cards) and he has raised. You have to decide to adjust your bet or to get out of the round. By default you will adjust. click again on "draw" when ready.

    2.1.4 Raise

    After you got your new cards you are allowed to raise a little bit. It is the same as the described bet phase so i don't explain it again. Click on &uot;see" when ready (the same button as the "draw" button).

    2.1.5 See / Draw

    I know i said there are four phases and this is the fifth one, but it is nearly the same as the draw phase. But you will also get all the money in the pot if you're the winner and you see the winning cards blinking as well as you can see the cards of the computer. Note: the blinking cards do not have to be the best cards of the winning player. Theese are the cards which caused the win. So if you have two pairs (e.g. 2 * 2 and 2 * 3) and an ace but only the ace is blinking then does the computer player have the same two pairs (2 * 2 and 2 * 3) but not the ace. Now click on "draw" again as described above to begin a new round.
