Poker is on Fire
Industry estimates are that 50 million to 80 million Americans play the game. Popular card games are played in almost every house. Poker is booming in Casinos, Card rooms and online.

Identifying the cards and Ranking of hands

Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards (except for Ross Perot Poker, which is played with less than a full deck). The cards are ranked from high to low in the following order: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. House rules often allow aces to double as low cards. The cards are also separated into four suits. Clubs, Spades, Hearts and Diamonds.
High Card
High Card: In a poker hand with no winning combinations of cards, the high card wins. That card is determined by the ranking above.
One Pair: Two cards of the same value, with three extra cards that do not combine in any desirable way.
Two Pair: Two pairs of cards with the same value, each pair having a different value. One extra card is present.
Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same value, with the remaining two cards not combining in any desirable way.
Straight: Five cards of sequential value, and differing "suits" (spades, clubs, hearts or diamonds).
Flush: Five cards of the same suit, that are not all sequential.
Full House: Three cards of one value, and two cards of another value.
Four of a Kind: Four cards of the same value, with one extra card present.
Straight Flush: Five sequential cards of the same suit.
Royal Flush: A Straight Flush that consists of the five highest value cards, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.
