Feel to check out my Beginner’s Guide to the Game of Poker, complete with Hand Rankings.

You might also be wondering, as a US Citizen, just how legal it is for an American to engage in online poker. According to Legal Zoom, it’s more or less legal to bet online, as long as the website is not located in the United States (according to Legal Zoom, many US states technically have laws against online betting, but only one case has ever been prosecuted by a State [North Dakota], and that resulted in a $500 fine for $100,000 worth of online sports betting winnings).

I know that in the State of Colorado, at least as of this writing, it’s still illegal to engage in online wager poker, even on a site based in another country, even though online sports betting is about to become legal in the State thanks to a recent referendum.
