I never played before and I got invited to play this weekend at my friend's cousin's house. I said I knew how to play but here I am trying to learn online haha I should have just said I didn't know. I don't even know how to play spades! I think they might be doing multiple games too, not just the standard hold em everyone plays.

Poker is simple once you understand the suits and what beats what. If you didn't go already, just peep this video:


The games are all different though so I don't know what kinds of poker games you all will be playing but aside from wilds, everything stays the same.

I am well over a month late to this but I just wanted to say I played for the first time last week and once you get the suits down and the hands, it is easy. I knew how to play spades since I was 13 and this was a lot easier to learn.

I ended up figuring it out. They got a few laughs out me though which wasn't that bad. I laughed too. Was all good. I at least know how to play the basics. I still don't understand the odds.

The odds is the hardest part. It is knowing the math on the fly and I am no good at that either. You have to consider the people playing, the number of cards being used, and what is being shown. All too much for me!
