Poker is a PVP casino game. This article does not intend to break new ground with Poker theory or strategy, but instead will inform on the nuances of Torn's Poker engine and provide a little bit of helpful guidance.


Poker is a Player vs Player (PVP) Casino game that does not require casino tokens. There are currently 27 permanent tables in operation - each with different stakes, numbers of seats available and time controls.

General Information

This is a player versus player casino game, and does not require casino tokens. You cannot join a poker table while in jail or hospital. You cannot travel while playing, or be traveling when trying to join a game.

How To Play

Each player is dealt two down (or hole) cards that only they can see. A round of betting occurs (sometimes this round of betting cannot include "raises" if "No Pre-flop" has been turned on. This means that there cannot be any raises before the Flop. Three community cards (known as the "flop") are dealt face up in the middle of the table. Another round of betting occurs. A fourth community card (known as the "turn") is dealt face up on the table. Another round of betting occurs. A fifth and final community card (known as the "river") is dealt face up on the table. A final round of betting occurs. The player's hole cards are revealed and the player with the best five-card poker hand wins the pot. Your five card hand can consist of none, one, or both of your hole cards along with five, four, or three of the community cards. If two or more players share the same best hand, the pot is divided equally among the winners.
