There are many different forms of poker. The basic rules of poker state that the high hand wins the pot. You only use five cards no matter how many cards are dealt to you. The lowest hand to win would be a high card. The highest hand a royal flush.

There are many variations to the game, but essentially, there are five cards, and you must get the best hand (there are many types of hands as well).

A poker game starts with players being dealt two face-down each. Round of betting follows and three community cards are dealt face-up in the table middle. Another betting round takes place before fourth community card is dealt and there is a further betting round before the fifth community card is dealt. Final round takes place at this point.

To play poker you deal the cards and then match them according to suit or number. A series of 5 consectuative cards is a straight, 5 of the same suit is a flush, and 2 of the same card is a pair.
