As funny as this may sound, numerous poker gamblers do not understand the basic object of the game which is to win cash by winning the pot, which has wagers made by many gamblers during the hand. Essentially a player bets in hope that they have the greater hand,or gives the perception(bluffs) that they hold the greater hand and therefore persuades the other opponents to throw (fold)their hand in.
