Poker - Hand Ranking
Poker's most famous hand, a royal flush, cannot be beaten. It consists of the ace, king, queen, jack and ten of a single suit.
Five cards in sequence, of the same suit. In the event of a tie, the highest rank at the top of the sequence wins.
Four of a Kind
Four cards of the same rank, and one side card or ‘kicker’. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest side card (‘kicker’) wins.
Five cards of the same suit, not in sequence. In the event of a tie, the player holding the highest ranked card wins.
Three cards of the same rank, and two cards of a different, matching rank. In the event of a tie, the highest three matching cards wins.
Five non-suited cards in sequence. In the event of a tie, the highest ranking card at the top of the sequence wins.
Three of a Kind
Three cards of the same rank, and two unrelated side cards. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest, and if necessary, second-highest side card (‘kicker’) wins.
Two cards of matching rank, two cards of different matching rank, and one kicker. If both players have an identical Two Pair, the highest kicker wins.
Two cards of matching rank, and three unrelated side cards. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest, and if necessary, second or third-highest side card wins.
Any hand that does not qualify under the categories listed. In the event of a tie, the highest card wins, such as ‘ace-high’.

- The only difference is all the cards from deuce (2) to five (5) are taken out from the deck, leaving 36 cards instead of 52.

- Players make wagers on the confidence of their hand's strength in a bid to win the pot. There is no limit to the betting in this game.
The poker game begins with a round of betting after players are dealt with 2 hole cards. Player to the left of big blind will start first.
Players can call the button ante, raise or fold. Players who called the button ante or raises will proceed to the flop.
Three community cards called the 'Flop' are dealt faced up in the middle of the table followed by a second round of betting.
The fourth community card called the 'Turn' is dealt, followed by a third round of betting.
The fifth community card called the 'River' is dealt, followed by the final round of betting.
After the final round of betting, players who are still in the hand will reveal their hands. The player with the best five-cards hand wins the pot.
