Instruction will also include the history of poker, the rules and terminology of the game, the hierarchy of poker hands, and the strategy of betting and raising. Instruction will be conducted at special poker tables with casino-type poker chips and regular 52-card decks. After the “Introduction to Strategies of Poker” classes, beginners will be invited to play with more seasoned players in the “Strategy of Poker” course, which follows.  All players, seasoned and beginners, continue to hone their skills each week and become better players.
