Poker is a card game where players place bets according to their hand’s value. A hand consists of five cards and the higher the number, the higher the value. Players may also make a bet that they think they have the highest hand and if other players match it, they win. These bets are called “raises”.

IDNPoker is the largest poker network in Asia and third in the world, by traffic volume. The website was first launched in Cambodia in 2010, but didn’t gain much traction until last year, when it jumped up to the second position in the PokerScout rankings.
