Poker

Online poker is the game of poker played over the Internet. It has been partly responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of poker players worldwide. For the year of 2005, revenues from online poker were estimated at US$200 million per month.

Standard Poker information

There are 52 cards in the pack, and the ranking of the individual cards, from high to low, is ace, king, queen, jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. There is no ranking between the suits - so for example the king of hearts and the king of spades are equal.

A poker hand consists of five cards. The categories of hand, from highest to lowest, are listed below. Any hand in a higher category beats any hand in a lower category (so for example any three of a kind beats any two pairs). Between hands in the same category the rank of the individual cards decides which is better, as described in more detail below.

In games where a player has more than five cards and selects five to form a poker hand, the remaining cards do not play any part in the ranking. Poker ranks are always based on five cards only.

Possible hands:

Royal Flush (highest poker hand ace, king, queen, jack, ten, all in the same suit)
Straight Flush (Five cards of the same suit in sequence: J, 10, 9, 8, 7)
Four of a kind (Four cards of the same rank - such as four kings)
Full House (three cards of one rank and two cards of another rank: 10, 10, 10, 8, 8)
Flush (Five cards of the same suit: example:K-J-7-6-5)
Straight (Five cards of mixed suits in sequence: Q, J, 10, 9, 8)
Three of a Kind (Three cards of the same rank plus two other cards: 7, 7, 7, 5, 3)
Two Pairs (A pair is two cards of equal rank: 9, 9, Q, Q, 4)
Pair (A hand with two cards of equal rank: 10, 10, 5, 8, J)
High Card (Five cards which do not form any of the combinations listed above)
