Variations of Poker


Poker is a card game with several variations. For example, there is the Five-card draw, and the Straight flush. The Straight flush is a group of five cards that starts with the highest card in its suit. For more than 10 players, two separate games may be organized. The High card is used to break ties.

Five-card draw

Five-card draw poker is an extremely popular form of poker. The object of the game is to create the best five-card hand possible out of seven cards. The dealer (Alice) deals out the five cards face down, and the player with the best five-card hand wins.

Straight flush

A straight flush is one of the most powerful hands in poker. It is a run of five cards of the same suit in order, but not necessarily in sequence. A straight flush in poker is stronger than a simple straight. A straight flush in poker can also beat a full house. Although all the suits in poker have equal value, some poker games assign different values to each one.

Straight Flush starts with highest value card

The Straight Flush starts with the highest value card in poker and runs down the board. The highest straight is an Ace, King, Queen, or Jack, while the lowest is an Ace, 5, 4, 3, or 2. A Straight Flush can be a high or low straight, and Aces can be both. Another poker hand is Three-of-a-Kind, which consists of three cards of the same rank in three different suits. It is possible to make these hands with just two side cards, but only the highest three-of-a-kind wins.

High card used to break ties

The high card is a common way to break ties in poker games. When a tie is formed, the player with the highest suit wins. The high card is also used to break ties in low stud games when all players have the same number of cards.
