The Basics of Poker


Whether you’re a seasoned poker player or you’ve never played before, there are some basic strategies that you should know. These strategies will help you to win more games, and increase your income.

Straight flush

Among the five poker hands, the Straight Flush is the second strongest. In the 52-card deck, there are 10,200 possible straight hand combinations.

The Straight is a combination of five cards of the same suit. When two Straight Flushes of the same suit compete, the higher card combination wins the pot.

The Straight can be beaten by flush and full house. For example, four Queens beat four Kings. However, the Straight is a higher hand than the Full House.

Royal flush

Getting a Royal flush in poker is a real smile of fortune. In fact, some players go their entire lives without one.

There are four types of Royal Flushes. The first is the standard royal flush. Then there’s the Sequential Royal, which is a Royal flush with the cards in the proper order. Then there’s the natural royal flush. These are all different from one another only in the suits they’re in.

Full house

Whether you are new to poker or looking to brush up on your game, Full House Poker is a great game to play. It’s a video game poker variant from Microsoft Game Studios and Krome Studios. It was released for Xbox Live Arcade on March 16, 2011. It is available for Windows Phone 7, as well. This title offers a number of different features, including a leveling system, avatar flair, and a variety of single player and multiplayer modes.


Among the many poker variants, the most famous is Texas Hold’em. But other poker variants are also popular. These include Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud, and Pineapple Poker.

Omaha Hi-Lo is a poker variant that requires you to make low and high card hands at the same time. This can be challenging for those who don’t have a good handle on the game. It also requires you to bluff and use your low hands well.
