Common poker words in the chat box

When I started to play poker, I had big problems to understand what people wrote in the chat. My native language is not English and the first time I ever played online poker, I was a bit confused when player started to use poker words  in the chat box.

I will try to explain the most common words that poker room use on the chat

  • n1- nice one                                   
  • ty- thank you

  • nh- nice hand                                  
  • gg- good game

  • g1- good one                                  
  • gl/gla- good luck/all

  • gb- good bet                                    
  • tnx/tx- thanks

  • np- no problem/nice play                
  • yw- you are welcome

  • omg- oh my god                              
  • brb- be right back

  • pp- pocket par                              
  • lol- laugh out loud

  • nb- nice bet                                      
  • m8- mate/friend

  • str8- a straight                                  
  • yw- you wish

  • vnh- very nice hand                          
  • nc- nice call

  • nh- nice hand                                    
  • gp- god play

  • wp- well played                                 

  • u2- you too

  • bbl- be back later

And three words that I don't like and believe shouldn't be use in a community poker room is: stuf - Shut The F*** Up, ffs- For F***’s Sake and fu- f*** you. I presenting this words for you because it's very common words at the poker rooms. I never use this  words and players that use the f-words is they that starting to losing money at the tables.
And remember if you can not afford to lose money at poker, you shouldn't play with real money. All poker sites can offer you to play free poker.
Have fun and see you at the poker tables.

Texas Hold em Rules

I'm going to explain how to play and the rules in Texas holdem.

Texas holdem have simple rules and beginners can easily learn and starting to play immediatly. Texas Holdem is very popular game and it's the most growing card game on the web.

The cards dealt to the table are split into three rounds of betting, together they are called community cards.Each player begins with two cards, face down, they are called Hole cards. And then they starting the betting, and the beginning with the two player to the left of the blinds, called big blind and small blind, and continuing clockwise around the table. Now can all players choose if the want to call, fold or raise the blinds.

After that the dealer face up three cards in the center of the table and the betting round starting again, this cards is called The flop, and the betting round beginning with the two player to the left of the dealer button.
