Best Games to Learn How to Play: Texas Hold’Em

Poker is one of the most popular games in the world, as according to a recent article there are over 100 million poker players worldwide.

Texas Hold’em is one of the most popular forms of poker, and it is the one that everyone should learn how to play. Texas Hold’em is one of the best games to learn because it is so simple, but so complex (and you can never truly master it).

I think that Texas Hold’em is a great teacher of life skills such as bluffing, probability, and human psychology. The best players in the world are the ones who can best combine all of these skills into one cohesive strategy. Texas Hold’em is also a great game to learn how to play because it is very popular at home games, and it is easy to play with family and friends.

For those who have never played Texas Hold’em before, I would recommend looking at this chart to begin. The chart does a great job of explaining which hands are the strongest, and it is important to know the hand rankings before you begin playing. After you have mastered the basics, you can then move onto learning more about strategy and how to optimize profit. There is a great Masterclass by Daniel Negreanu on poker, and I would highly recommend you check it out if you enjoy Texas Hold’em.

The two games I have been playing consistently throughout quarantine have been Catan and Texas Hold’em, and they are both great games to play on a regular basis! I would highly recommend learning how to play both if you have time!
