Basics of Playing Poker
While learning poker the individual has to learn the following basics:
1) The hand rankings need to be done first. Ace is the highest card followed by the king, queen, jack, ten down up to two.
2) Understand the cards and their values.
3) The suits are all of equal value and no suit has higher value than the other.
4) Each player has 5 cards and the winner is the one who ends up with the highest value hand.
5) From highest to the lowest the hands are valued in the following way:
Royal Flush: This is the highest and the toughest to get. It consists of all the 5 cards from the same suit and of the top five value i.e. ace, king, queen, jack, 10.
Straight Flush: It consists of five cards in the same suit in the numerical order. This is also very difficult to get.
Four of a kind: It implies those four cards of the same numerical rank and another random card.
Full House: Of the five cards 3 have the same numerical value and the other 2 too have the same numerical rank, then ties are broken by first three of a kind and then by the pair.
Flush: A Flush comprises of five cards of the same suit, without the consideration of their numerical rank. In a tie, whoever has the highest ranking card wins.
Straight: There are five cards in numerical order, regardless of their suits. In a tie, whoever's Straight goes to a higher ranking card wins the game.
Three of a kind: There are three cards of the same numerical rank, and two random cards that are not a pair
Two Pair: Two sets of pair and another random card.
One Pair: It consists of a single pair and three random cards. If more than one person has a single pair, then the person with the highest ranking pair wins.
High Card: There can be a situation where none of the players have anything of value. Then the player holding the highest-valued card wins. Here, 2 is the lowest card, and Ace is the highest. In the case of a tie, you move to the next highest card, and continue.
Thus poker can develop the analytical skills of an individual and can be a good exercise for the brain. Playing Poker is a raging fever among the card-lovers and those who play the game well always look forward to playing more of Poker.
