Learn the basics of online Poker

Before getting into any variant of online Poker, the homework is to learn the basics of Poker. There are several variants of Poker but the differences come in the style they are played. The rank of hands remains the same in most variants. The rank of hands are as under:

Rank Hands Cards
1 Royal Flush A, K, Q, J and 10: same suit
2 Straight Flush Any five cards in a sequence; same suit
3 Four of a kind Four cards of the same rank
4 Full house Three of the same rank and a pair
5 Flush Five cards of the same suit
6 Straight Five cards in a sequence; varied suits
7 Three of a kind Three cards of the same rank
8 Two pair Two pairs; both of different card values
9 One pair Two cards of the same rank
10 High card The highest card in the hand

Here, if you get a rank 1 hand, you overpower all other hands and win the game. Similarly, for other ranks, the lower rank is overpowered and the better hand is declared the winner of the game.
