I am Joe Marshall with Expert Village.com
and today we are going to learn how to win at poker. We are going to quickly go over
the basic hands. There are ten hands. No matter if you are playing seven card stud, Texas
Holdem or just regular draw poker, you need to known these hands to be able to play the
game. The best hand is the royal flush. It consists of the ten, Jack, Queen, King and
Ace of any suit. In this example it’s all of clubs; that’s a royal flush; it’s the
best hand you can have. The second best hand is the straight flush. It’s all the same
suit. All the cards are in numerical order. This one is Ace through 5. The third best
hand is the four of a kind. In our example, we have the four sevens. Next best hand is
a full house that consists of three of a kind and a pair in one hand. In this case, they
are two 2s and three Jacks. That is the full house. Then over here is just the flush. The
numerical value is not taken into consideration here. It is the five cards all of the same
suit. In this example, we have clubs. Then there is a straight where it does matter about
the numerical order but the suits themselves do not matter. It’s any five any six, seven,
eight or nine. Moving on, it is three of a kind. It is any card that has… in this case
we have three queens and we have two of a kind over here, two kings and two Aces and
then like one of the worst hands you can get is the pair. In this case, we just have a
pair of sixes here and nothing else to play with and if you don’t even have a pair as
good as it gets is like the high card out of any other five that you have in your hand.
In this example we have king high we have nothing else but the king. That is the worst
and that is a terrible hand. But those are the ten basic hands you need to understand
to play any of the games of poker.
