Poker is a game in which players are dealt a hand of cards (you might know this from Kakegurui, the Rounders movie or Red dead redemption 2), and then bet on whether your hand is the best. There are 10 basic combinations of 5-card poker hands you need to know in order to play poker. This is the order from lowest to the highest combo:

1. High card
2. One pair
3. Two pairs of cards
4. Three of a kind
5. Straight – which is five cards, in sequential order
6. Flush – 5 cards of the same suit in any order
7. Full House – a pair and a three of a kind
8. Four of a kind
9. Straight Flush – which is five cards, in sequential order, of the same suit
10. Royal Flush – a straight containing a 10, jack, queen, king and ace.

Keep in mind that if two players have the same hand, the player with the higher cards wins. Here’s a full guide on poker hands ranking:

Here’s #howto play poker. The most common style of poker is Texas Hold’em in which every player is dealt two cards. While each variation of poker has its own rule set, they are basically the same when it comes to the setup. You see your own cards but keep them a secret from the other players. Players then decide whether to take part in the round or fold their cards. To keep the game going, we have the two roles of small- and big blind. These two players are forced to bet a minimum amount – often small. In this case, 10 and 20.

When it’s your turn, you can choose to either fold, call or bet. Folding means you give up your cards and sit this round out. Calling means you want to participate in this round and put down the required amount to match the other players. Raising means you not only match the other players amount, but raise the cost of further participation in the round.

When all bets are placed, the chips are gathered in what we call the ‘pot’ – the aggregated price for winning the round.

Three cards are then drawn and placed on the table for everyone to see.
This is called the ‘flop’. The cards on the table are called ‘community cards’ and they are important, as your ultimate combination of cards is the best possible 5 card combination of both the cards in your hand and the cards on the table.

Players then decide whether or not they wish to take further part in this round, with the biggest bet defining the cost of further participation.

Another card is drawn from the deck and placed for everyone to see.
This is called the ‘turn’.

Players fold, call or bet again before a fifth and final community card is drawn from the deck. The ‘river’. The round is almost over, and players make their final bets.

At this point, no further action can be made – and players show their cards to see who’s got the better combination of the 2 cards in their hand and the 3 cards on their table.

In this case, both players have pairs, but our pair is higher, and so we win.
The winner collects the chips in the pot and cards are then shuffled and dealt for a new round.

And of course the roles of small- and big blinds change clockwise to the next players. We hope this guide helps you figure out how to play poker.

  1. Do you need to pay to play one game? Or is it free to play the game on the app

  2. Ok, I think I finally understand. So, it's just whoever thinks they have the best cards and if they do, they win. So, it's entirely luck based, no skill required?

  3. I like the reference in the description.
    Btw nice video, I'll try the app when I can
