What are betting & bluffing games?

Players wager money or resources to increase the chance of winning anyone's bet. Based on a random outcome, such as getting a higher number of cards or rolling a higher number of dice. Players usually have partial information about the general state of the game and can "bluff" by showing through their actions in the game that they are in a stronger position than they are.
