Despite the popularity of poker, there are actually hundreds of different variations. The game can be played with as few as five players and as many as seventy. The rules are different for each variant. However, the basic rules are generally the same.
The aim of the game is to have the best possible hand. The best hand is usually made up of five cards of the same suit. The hand may be four of a kind, three of a kind, two of a kind, or a straight flush.
A straight flush is made up of the highest value card and the lowest card in the hand. In some games, the lowest card is the ace. The hand may also be made up of two cards of the same suit.
The hand may also be made up of a few random cards. The best possible hand is the best five-card combination that can be created from the cards in hand and the cards in the deck.
The hand may be made up of five cards of the same suit, four cards of a different suit, or a combination of the two. The highest card in the hand may also be the kicker. The kicker is the highest ranking card in the deck that is still in play.
The hand may also be made up from two cards of the same suit, three cards of a different suit, and a pair of aces.
