The game of poker is a card game in which each player is dealt a hand of five cards. The highest hand wins the pot. Players can use their cards to try to win the pot by making a bet, but they can also win by bluffing.
The game of poker is played in casinos, poker clubs, private homes, and online. Players use a standard 52-card deck, which is ranked from Ace to Ace. Some games have Wild Cards.
A high card breaks ties, while a pair or a straight wins if two players have the same hand. The highest possible poker hand is a Straight Flush, which is made up of five consecutive cards from the same suit.
Four of a kind is when a player has four cards of a particular rank. When there are two four of a kind with the same rank, the higher-ranking card wins.
A pair is formed when two cards of the same rank and value are placed in a hand. A pair can be a low or a high card. The lowest pair is a pair of aces.
A full house is when a player has three of a kind and a pair. A full house is sometimes called a trip set. The highest possible hand is a 7-5-4-3-2 in two or more suits.
When a flop contains three different suits, no flush is possible. The two players with the same straight will split the pot.
