The Rules of Poker

You don't have to be a high-stakes gambler to enjoy the game of poker. I myself took part in a low-stakes game (five dollars total to get in and play till the end) of Texas Hold 'Em this summer, and lost gloriously. But if you're going to play, you'll need to check out this site on poker rules. You'll find rules for the variant game of Omaha, as well as the basic poker hand values.

If I were telling you to go and bet lots of money on online poker, I'd feel ashamed. I can't tell you to do that. The sites I'm telling you about do make their money from online betting, but the information you'll find there is free, and can just as easily be used for friendly games around the campfire, playing for marshmallows or s'mores. Remember, gambling in and of itself is not evil. Just like anything else, when you let it overwhelm your life and you start counting on it to change your circumstances for the better, you'd better stop.
