There are so many variations of poker. I have had a little black book of poker for years, inside it gives a total rundown of hands and how poker is played in general. Then it gives about 30 different games to try. Some are really quite easy. It has your typical 5 card stud, 5 card draw, and a game called 6 into 5. Anyways, anyone thinking poker is hard is likely trying to play Texas Hold'em right off the bat. Look into poker, find a simpler game to start, and again, learn your hand rankings. That is so important. Good Luck!
