The basic of the game

The game is played between two players at least and it is the dealer has to serve one card by one card by following the direction of the clock. Before you start the game, a forced bet, a amount of chips is fixed in advance, called Ante, this one is paid by all players, but there are also other blinds for some poker variations such as “blind” or ” bring in “.The number of cards to each player also varies depending on the variant and it may be five, seven or nine depending on the type of game depends of the games and the goal is to have the best combination of cards to win the bet all players, called pot.

Everyone has their turn to talk where the player can raise the bet, follow the previous or fold that means that you are abandoning what you have already bet, which occurs when the player has a bad combination contributing to reduce its losses.

Combinations that you can have in poker

Come in descending order of value combinations of five cards possible. First, there is the straight flush is a sequence of five cards of the same colour. It is called royal flush if the sequence contains an ace, a king, queen, jack and a 10, it is the combination which has the highest poker value.

After the flush, there is the four of the kind which is a combination of four cards of equal value, for example, four queens or another card of some sort. It is important to know that in poker, the ace is the card that has the highest value and the two is the lowest card.
Then we have the full house, three cards of equal value also called three of the kind, associated with two cards of equal value or pair. For the full house, the classification depends of the value of the three of the kind.

After that, you have the flush, it is a combination of 5 cards of the same suit but that does not follow each other, we decide between two colours by the highest value card. Then there’s the straight, which contains 5 cards in sequence but not the same suit but be careful because in this case the Ace is the lowest card if the sequence consists of an Ace -2-3-4-5.

After you have the three of a kind: three cards of same rank and two cards of any kind. Finally, there may be two or a pair with five cards. If no player ever succeeded in forming these combinations, the winner is determined by the highest card, beginning with the aces and we decide to make a difference between two games with the kicker which is the highest card.
