Quick Tips to Understand Playing Poker for Beginners – Poker is a card game that is familiar and even worldwide. However, there are still many who don’t understand how to play this card game. Well, this time we will share a few tips / guides about the important elements in playing poker. What are they? we operate as follows:
1. Poker Cards
The first important element in playing poker is playing cards. This card consists of 52 cards divided into 4 shapes and 2 colors, namely red cards in the form of Heart (Heart) and Diamond (Diamond), while the black cards are in the form of Club (Curly) and Spade (Cards are arranged in sequence from smallest number to the biggest.
2. Ranks / Sequences in Poker Games
Maybe if you play poker you are familiar with the terms Flush, Straight, One Pair, Three of Kind etc … of course these terms are also an important element in playing poker. For those of you who do not understand this term, we will discuss it one by one for you. We start from the lowest order as follows:
1. High Card
As the name implies, if the card that the player is holding does not match the shape or number with the card that comes out on the table, the player who holds the highest card will be the winner of this session. The highest card in the game of Poker is 1 (US) the lowest card is 2 (Two)
For example: There is no match for the shape of the card you hold with the one on the table, your highest card is 10 (ten), your opponent’s highest card is 8 (eight) then you will be the winner in the game.
2. One Pair (A Pair)
It is said to be a pair because the cards you hold have the same number as the cards that come out on the table and the Pair with the highest number will be the winner. Suppose you hold a J Diamond card, the card that comes out on the table is J Heart, then you have got 1 Pair, but it turns out that your opponent holds a K Heart card and at the table the K Diamond card comes out, then your opponent will be the winner because he has a Pair number which is bigger even though both One Pair (K is greater than J)
3. Two Pair (Two Pair)
Two Pair is one level higher than One Pair because Two Pair has a match for two numbers, while One Pair is only one. If you and your opponent both get Two Pair, then the Pair with the highest number will also be sought. For example: You have a match in numbers, namely Number 2 and Number 5, but your opponent turns out to have a match in numbers 4 and 6, then the winner is your opponent because number 6 is greater than your number 5.
4.3 of a Kind (3 Cards that have the same number)
You get 2 and 3 then you are upset because it is the smallest number, while your friend gets K and J, but it turns out that the number 3 (Two Seeds) appears on the table, then you will be the winner even though your opponent has the same K and J cards ( 3 of a Kind is bigger than Two Pair).
5. Straight (Cards in Sequence of 5 Cards)
Straight occurs if your cards are consecutive when combined with cards on the table. For example: You have 9 Diamond Cards and 10 Hearts then the numbers that come out on the table are 8, J, Q Then your card is called Straight because it is a sequence of 5 cards, namely 8, 9, 10, J, Q. However, if your opponent has a higher order, then your friend will be the winner.
6.Flush (5 Types of Cards of the same Shape)
It turns out that the shape of the card also determines the game of Poker, not only having the highest or consecutive number. If you have the same form of 5 cards, then you are considered a Flush. For example: You hold 2 Spade, 5 Spade cards and it turns out that at the table 7 Spade, 9 Spade and J Spade come out, then you are declared to have the same form of 5 cards. The flush is one tier higher than a Straight Card.
7. Full House (Card 3 of a Kind + One Pair)
This designation is for those of you who have received the same 3 numbers plus one pair. Suppose you hold 3 Spade and 3 Club numbers, it turns out that you are hokki, at the table the numbers 3 Heart and 9 Heart and 9 Spade (One Pair) come out, Congratulations you have just been declared Full House.
8. Straight Flush (5 cards of the same suit and in sequence)
Where you hold 5 cards of the same suit and it turns out that sequence is called a Straight Flush. This card is quite difficult to get, so if you already have this card, 90% of the winnings are yours.
9.Royal Flush (5 cards of the same suit but Sequence from number 10 to Ace)
Almost the same as Straight Flush, but this card is more difficult to get because it has to be in sequence from 10 to US numbers with the same suit. Because US numbers are the highest numbers in the game of Poker. Those who get this card have been confirmed as winners (Like the one in the film)
