How to Play Poker
There are many variations of poker games such as 5 Card Draw or Texas Hold’em, but the essence of how to play poker is to have the largest 5 card combination. The winner is the owner of the card with the greatest combination. This card combination is predetermined and has become a basic rule in how to play poker. At the opening stage, the remaining players compare the cards they have in order of the strength of the card combination. If two players have a card combination with the same value or neither has a winning card combination, then the player with the highest value card wins (the highest value ace card).
That way the first way to play poker is to understand the number of card combinations from the highest to the lowest. Here’s the combination from highest to lowest
1. Royal Flush (10 cards, jacks, queens, kings, and aces, all of one suit) – the highest value because it is the most surprising when obtained. A common misconception is that this card combination is the most difficult to get than the other five similar cards.
2. Straight Flush (five cards with consecutive numbers, all of the same suit) – must not have a king card and a two card at the same time (eg Q-K-A-2-3).
3. Four of a Kind (four cards with the same number and one card of any kind).
4. Full House (three cards with the same number and two cards with the same number) for the same combination of cards. Full House, which is stronger is determined by a card with a higher value than three cards with the same number.
5. Flush (five cards of the same suit) – any number doesn’t matter.
6. Straight (five cards with consecutive numbers, different suits) – must not have a king card and two cards at the same time (eg J-Q-K-A-2).
7. Three of a Kind (three cards with the same number, two other cards with different numbers) – if the other two cards have the same number, it will be a Full House.
8. Two Pair (two pairs of cards with the same number plus one card with different numbers).
9. One Pair (two cards with the same number, three other cards with different numbers).
10. High Card (the value of the poker card itself can be a sequence of cards as well as an image of a poker card)
