How to play poker hands
There are a lot of poker hands and most newbie players get a little bit confused on how they work. Although this is a common problem, you should be cleared up as soon as possible – knowing what hand beats what is fundamental when it comes to playing, and you can’t bet if you don’t know how your current hand fits in the big picture. So, throughout this small article we will go over how to play poker hands.
- Royal Flush
The Royal Flush beats everything and it is made of five straight cards from 10 to Ace of the same suit – A, K, Q, J, 10. If you have this hand, then try to squeeze as much money as you can from your opponents.
- Straight Flush
A straight flush keeps on being a sequence of 5 cards of the same suit, but the sequence isn’t the same as in the Royal Flush. It can be 3,4,5,6,7.
- Four of kind
The four of kind is the same card repeated for four times, or a four-of-a-kind. The kicker, the other card that remains of the 5 card combination, is called the kicker and decides the winner in case of a draw.
- Full House
Full House is 3 of a kind and a plus. For example = 3,3,3,8,8
The flush consists of 5 suited cards.
A Straight Flush or Royal Flush that isn’t suited.
Just as the name tells it: Three cards of the same rank.
- Two Pairs
When you have two pairs (2,2,5,5,)
A simple Pair!
- High Card
When you have nothing!
The cards are organized by rank, so pair beats high card, two pairs beats pair, three of a kind beats two pairs and so on.
