    Dear Everyone.

    OK, I just joined because I love watching cards online but I can't afford to play it much. I saw a game called Tempest being played, didn't understand the terminology and was wondering if someone could explain it to me (I bet it's the same as other card games but I prob. don't understand the terminology in those either!)

    What's a blind and what's a big blind?

    What's 'The River' and does Tempest have one?

    I presume 'The Showdown' is everyone putting their hands on the table and seeing who wins, is that right? Is that when 'The River' comes into play, if there is one?

    Sorry I'm so ignorant. But like I say, I'm not really a player - too broke and it looks dodgy - but I love watching streamers playing it. It looks great fun if you've got the dough!

    Yours respectfully
