A person who is absent from a hand is dealt that hand. If he or she is not in the game, they are still obligated to pay the blinds and antes, which will be forfeited if the player leaves the table before the first card is dealt. The rules stipulate that an absent player cannot leave his or her seat during the hand. The book contains important information about the game of poker. Here are some of the most important rules that govern its play.

The cards are dealt face-down. Ace-to-five lowball and high draw poker use the same hand rankings. A low-ball game, on the other hand, uses a joker as the lowest unmatched card. This is a variant of draw poker where straights count against you. In stud games, kings, queens, and jacks are not dealt face-down. A flush is five cards of the same suit.
