Poker Guide for Ladies
Poker, one of the world's most popular card games, is also one of the easiest to learn. Because of it’s entertainment value, competitiveness, and the physical and mental endurance that’s required to play the game, Poker is actually considered a sport. It is one of the most fascinating games ever created combining skill, strategy, and bluffing techniques.
Poker mirrors life and it teaches several valuable life lessons – discipline, how to take risks, manage money, control your emotions, deal with failure, learn from your mistakes, and it improves decision-making abilities and observation skills.
One of the biggest myths about Poker is that it is a man’s game. TV shows and movies typically depict a group of beer drinking, cigar smoking men squaring off over a deck of cards as the doting wife either provides snacks or is forced out of the room. And while for the most part, poker is a male-dominated sport, as it gains more and more mainstream acceptance, women are becoming increasingly interested in taking up the game not only as a fun hobby, but as a livelihood. Women make great poker players – never underestimate the power of female intuition; women know how to read people, are more patient, and they are not ego-driven.
Add Poker to your Bach Bash
While you might not have ever thought about adding poker to the list of activities for your girl’s trip to Vegas, you might want to consider a stop at one of the casino’s before or after a night of clubbing. Since you’re already dressed to the nines and looking hot, you and your girl gang should consider hitting the tables to play a few rounds. Poker is a fun and exciting component to any visit to Vegas and it’s also a great place to meet men!
Poker tables can be found in any hotel casino and are usually filled with a variety of guys – some who are highly skilled at the game and winning lots of money, some trying to prove their machismo, and others who are attempting to win back everything they lost. Take advantage of their weakness for the female gender and their willingness to teach you everything they know and sit in on their game. If you flaunt what you got and accentuate the positive, you and your squad could end up sweeping the table without having to put up much of an effort.
Strip Poker - The Ultimate Sexy Card Game
Playing poker always makes for a fun time, especially if you’re winning but if you want to raise the stakes and increase the fun, why not set up a game in the privacy of your suite. Strip Poker is a popular, daring, and erotically adventurous version of poker that involves consenting adults, embarrassing your friends, and lots of libations. It’s perfect for co-ed bachelorette parties or bachelorette bashes with professional male strippers.
The anticipation of whose going to end up naked is almost unbearable. In strip poker, players wager items of clothing they are wearing (it’s a good idea to make sure everyone has on the same amount of clothing – and before you start, everyone needs to decide if jewelry and accessories are acceptable items to be removed). By the end of the game, several players, who are either bad at poker or just unlucky, will end up in their underwear…or even naked depending on how far you want to take it. Obviously, the winner of the game is the one left with the most clothing on.

Deal Me In - Poker Games Best Suited for Stripping
Technically, any type of poker will work for strip poker but it’s best to go with Five-Card Draw or Texas Hold’em.
Considered the most common and simplest types of poker to learn and the easiest for a casual game of strip poker, Five-Card Draw is where each player is dealt five cards and each gets to exchange one or more of those cards for an equal number off the top of the deck. They bet or fold before and after the exchange and the remaining player with the highest hand wins.
Another popular variant of the game is Texas Hold’em. Each player is dealt two cards face-down and tries to combine them with a pool of five gradually revealed community cards. There are several rounds of betting and the remaining player who can make the best five-card hand wins.
A Friendly Game of Strip Poker with Professional Strippers
We all know male strippers are a popular addition to any bachelorette party but now you can put a spin on the game by hiring a professional male stripper(s) to help you play. Set up the rules so that whenever a bachelorette wins a hand, the stripper peels off an article of his clothing and provides an erotic lap dance to the winner. It may end up being more of a distraction than a lesson in strip poker, but it would certainly be a nice one.
Drink or Strip Poker
Drink or Strip Poker is another sure-fire way to spice up the party. It’s a simple drinking game where a player can either remove a piece of clothing or do a shot. This game is fast and fun and a great alternative to the standard strip poker. With Drink or Strip Poker, players have the option of getting naked or getting drunk or both!
The twist to this game is that it is played with coins not cards. A player tosses a coin into the air, catches it, and then predicts whether it’s heads or tails. If the player guesses correctly, he/she can pass the coin to the player on the right or play again. If the player guesses correctly twice in a row, the coin can be passed to any person in the round or he/she can try for a third win. If three times a charm, the player is allowed to put on a piece of clothing and choose who to hand the coin over to but if the guess is wrong, the player must remove a piece of clothing or take a drink and the coin is passed to the player on the left.
Worldwide there are more than 100 million people who play poker and the latest trend for women who want to change things up a bit from the proverbial bachelorette party. It’s intriguingly diverse with enough variants to keep any player happy; it’s fun, exciting, and a great element to any celebration. When it comes to Strip Poker and Drink or Strip Poker, remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless you take pictures and post them on your social media platforms!!
