Poker Rules

Poker Rules

Poker as a game can be quite a handful. Before learning the minute details of the game, it is essential to learn the rules of the game to play it perfectly. Like the game itself, the rules of poker too are a bit tricky but not very difficult to understand. Thus before playing the game itself, it is necessary to be thorough with the rules of the game.

A bit about Poker

Poker is a game of chance and when poker becomes gambling there is a lot of skill and intellect involved on the part of the player. The gambling part makes poker that much more competitive, interesting and challenging.

Rules of the Game:

The rules of poker are as follows:

1) The Basic Rules: First the cards are ranked from the highest to the lowest. Ace is the highest followed by king, queen, jack, ten, nine up to two. There are four suits- spade, club, heart and diamond. However none of the suits are higher than one another and all have the same value. The game is played with each player getting 5 cards and the winner is the player who has the highest value hand. Sometimes there is a wild card which can take the form of any suit or value the player desires. Generally, jokers are used as wild cards.

2) The Rankings of the hands: The hands are ranked from the highest to the lowest according to the value of the cards. It is further described as follows:

  a) Five of a kind: This is the highest possible hand which can be got only with the use of a wild card.
  b) Straight Flush:
  c) This means that the hand consists of all the 5 cards in an order from the same suit. An ace high straight flush is called royal flush and is the best natural hand.
  d) Four of a kind: This simply implies four cards of the same rank. If there is a tie then the hand with highest value cards wins.
  e) Full House: It means a hand which consists of 3 cards of a kind and a pair.
  f) Flush: When all the cards are from the same suit.
  g) Straight: A straight refers to 5 cards in order like 2, 3,4,5,6.
  h) Three of a kind: This means three cards of any rank with two random cards.
  i) Two Pair: This refers to the hand consisting of two distinct pairs along with a single random card.
  j) Pair: It means that there is one pair and three different cards.
  k) High Card: If nobody has any of the above hands then the player with the highest cards wins.


For mastering and learning the intricacies of Poker, it is vital to learn the rules of the game and understand their implications. This is the only way a player can “rule” the game.
