Poker is a chance game. However, when you introduce the concept of betting, poker gains a lot of skill and psychology. (This is not to say that there is no risk when poker is tricky, but not so much). This is a very basic starting point for poker rules. To learn more, get a book about the game (or start playing with a group of people who know how), which is more expensive than reading a book, do not mind. * Snicker *).
This list is divided into several sections:
Poker is packaged from a standard 52 card. (Some variant games use multiple packages or add some cards called jokers). Cards Ranking (High-Low) Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3, 2, Ace. (Ace can be high or low, but usually high). There are four suits (spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs); however, no suit is higher than the other one. All poker hands contain five cards, the highest card.
Some games have wildcards that can take any suit and arrange their possessive desires. Occasionally, the player will be used as a wildcard and at other times the game will specify which cards are crazy (reason, one-eyed jack, or whatever).
How to rank
Hand ranking is as follows (high to low):
The same four
Hand Ranking Description
Five (this is only possible when using wildcards) is the highest card. If there are more than one hand with five cards, then the higher cards win (five A defeat five kings, defeat five queens, etc.).
Flush is the best of natural hand. Flush straight (5 cards, such as 5-6-7-8-9), are the same suit. As in the regular season, you can choose from A-K-Q-J-T or 5-4-3-2-1. However, a straight line can not "surround". (Such as K-A-2-3-4, this is not straight). A high direct flush is called royal flush and is the highest natural hand.
The same four
The four types are only four cards of the same rank. If two or more hands pass, then the four taller hands will win. If in some singular games with multiple wildcard characters, there are four players of the same rank, the highest cards other than four will win. General rule: When your hands are put together, three cards, etc., and the outer card breaks the rope according to the high card rule.
Full house is a K-K-K-5-5 type, but also a pair. The tie was first broken by three and then paired. So K-K-K-2-2 defeated Q-Q-Q-A-A and beat Q-Q-Q-J-J. (Obviously, these three methods can only be similar if you use wildcards.)
All cards are the same card, such as J-8-5-3-2, are all spades. When washing your tie, please follow the high card rules.
A straight line is 5 cards, such as 4-5-6-7-8. The ace may be high (A-K-Q-J-T) or low (5-4-3-2-1). However, a straight line can not "surround". (Such as Q-K-A-2-3, this is not straight). When the straight straight, the highest straight wins. (AKQJT defeated KQJT9 to 5432A). If two straights have the same value (AKQJT vs. AKQJT) they split the pot.
Three cards of any level, matched with two cards that are not a pair (otherwise a full house, again, the highest three cards win, and if both are the same, then a higher card.
This is two different cards and the fifth card. The top pair won the relationship. If both hands have the same high pair, the second wins. If both hands have the same duo, the high card wins.
One pair with three different cards. High card to break the relationship.
This is any hand that does not meet either of the above. If there is no pair or better then the highest card wins. If multiple people hit the highest card, they see the second highest, and then the third highest card is also used to break the tie, when the master has the same type of hand (right, flush, straight, etc.).
