Poker is a popular family of card games. Typically, a poker game does not involve manipulation of the cards by the players, only wagering on the relative strength of their hand compared to their opponents' concealed hands. (An exception is draw poker, such as five card draw or lowball.) At the end, the best five-card hand wins the pot.
Poker is usually played with two to ten players, although the practical maximum number of players can vary with each game, with draw usually seating up to six players and hold'em usually seating up to ten. The game is often played in public brick-and-mortar casinos, on the Internet, or in private home games.
