Hence, the draw poker rules became the initial basis for other poker game rules. In the five-card draw poker, players are dealt 5 cards at first, and may put aside any of them in an attempt to get a better hand. In spite of the fact that such rules have originally been used in poker game, and draw poker is considered to be the forefather of all other poker games, these rules are not often applied in casinos nowadays. Today, a draw poker players' main aim is to build a hand of five cards. That is why it is also called the 'five card draw poker.'
Draw poker rules provide that a player's cards should not be revealed before the concluding showdown is made. Moreover, they are revealed only when it is an utterly necessary procedure required by the situation, or there are extra cards. In the poker game, each card is dealt features down. There are two important things to remember when you enter the world of draw poker and start to follow the draw poker rules. The first one is the five card draw poker hands and their positions. The second is the passing of the game with recommendations when and in what way to bet.
A hand in poker is completed of five cards, and a player's success depends on the cards combination, which he or she gets. There are different possible combinations, all of which have different ranking (from the highest to the lowest): 1)regal blush- A&K&Q&J&10 of all suits; 2)instantly blush- any 5 successive draw poker cards, all of the same suit; 3)4-of-a-kind - 4 cards, similar value (e.g. four-sevens); 4) house-full - 3 cards of a kind and one pair; 5)blush- any five cards of the same suit; 6) straight means one five uninterrupted cards; 7) 3-of-a-kind: three cards of the same value; 8) two pairs; 9) pair; 10)no pair: five cards of different values and suits.

According to draw poker rules, the overview of the poker rules begins with the definition of a "dealer." The dealing process typically begins from the right side of the poker table. You are dealt after a person on the right from you and, after you have gotten your cards, a player on the left side is dealt.
The dealer, once he/she is assigned, shuffles the cards and knocks down. Each player, according to the draw poker rules, makes a bet, which amount depends on a certain game he or she is going to play. If a player does not make a bet, he or she is considered to "pass." The sums of money gathered from bets made by all players in the draw poker game are put into the center of poker table into a special bag called "the vessel."
When all bets are inside the bag, a dealer deals one card for a certain period, value downward, to every participant around the draw poker game table, starting on the left from the dealer. After that, the second cards are dealt to every player, and the procedure continues until every player has 5 cards, all values downward. Then all players pick up their cards and look at their hands. Then first of the players starts the gambling round placing a bet or representing a pass by making no bet, or falling down by removing their hand. Then, the next player on the left has the occasion to gamble now, and the game begins.
