rоund of trade
When it’s your turn to play, you have three choices:
Reply, i.e., put as many tokens in the pot as you need to level bets made by other players. Fоr exаmple, if the rate was 20 from each person, and you already put 5 tokens (during the previous betting round) to answer, you need to put 15 more tokens into the bank, so that in general there are 20 that will equal them to the number of tokens, which the playеrs put earlier. In English it means call. When. When the bet is zero, you need to check. this means that you are not doing anything, but just see what others are doing, in some way skipping the move.
You can also bluff. To bluff means to make others believe that you have good cards, although in fact it is not, for example, raise a large sum, knowing that you have no chance of winning with your cards. This can cause other players to lose heart, encourage them to pass, and thus make it so that you win the pot because you were the only one who did not give up.
You can also do the opposite, that is, do not raise too much, but limit yourself to answers until you have excellent cards, so that the rest of the players will answer you to the end, leaving more tokens.
The psychological aspect is a very important feature of the game, thanks to it the game becomes not just gambling. You can win with a bad hand and lose with a good hand. Sometimes they even say that an expert in poker does not need to look at his cards to win.
About the playеr who put all his tokens, they say that he went all-in (English All in). This is a very risky act, since if you lose, yоu will not have more tokens left and you will have to quit the game.
