When it comes to betting, the minimum amount of chips is two. The maximum is nine. The number of players per table depends on the game type and the amount of chips in the pot. There are a few variations of this, but the basic rule is that any bet must be at least equal to the number of chips in the pot. The limit is higher for more complicated games, such as draw poker. However, even if you’re a beginner, you can still learn the rules of poker by observing the game.
IDNPoker started its operations in Cambodia in 2010 but failed to gain much traction. In 2016, it jumped to the second position in the global poker networks ranking. The site focuses primarily on the Asian market and does not promote itself internationally. However, IDNPoker’s rooms are fully translated into English. The success of IDNPoker can be attributed to a significant promotional campaign conducted in Asia. Besides playing poker on the sites, IDNPoker is also active in charity events and gaming conferences in the area.
