Poker is one of the most popular card games in the world, and its rules are based on international rules. The rules of the game are published by the International Poker Federation (FIDPA), which was founded by Dutch poker professional Marcel Luske. The official poker rules are posted on the FIDPA website. The poker chapter of the administrative rules provides guidance for completing poker forms. Examples of forms include the Ideal Cash Bank Master Record, Reconciliation of Ideal Cash Banks, and Prize Register.
The game has long been an international one, originating with a bluffing game played by a Chinese emperor in the 10th century. The game was later translated into French as “poque,” and is believed to be related to the Persian card game As Nas, which dates back to the 16th century. Its European ancestor, the French version of poque, began catching on in Europe around the 17th century. In that decade, Queen Victoria, a fan of poker, asked the French government for rules for the game. The game finally gained acceptance in Europe after World War I.
The first DVD of the series is entitled “Official Poker Shuffles and Cuts.” It teaches how to perform a range of shuffles and cuts. In addition to the standard shuffles and cuts, it also teaches showy multi-packet cuts. The Crazy Cut is a cut similar to that of Chris Kenner’s “Sybil” trick. It consists of fifty moves in total, making it an extremely useful tool for poker magicians of all skill levels.
