Poker is quickly becoming one of the world’s favorite card games. Growth rates among younger people are the greatest in history. Although it is illegal for people under eighteen to place wagers, many teenagers play and bet among their group of friends.

The following are the hands of Poker you are trying to achieve.

A. Five of a kind, the only way you can achieve a five of a kind is if you are using a Joker. In this case the Joker would be considered a duplicate of one of the other four of a kind. The house determines if a Joker will be used in the deck or not.

The second highest hand is called a Royal Flush. The Royal Flush consists of cards all in the same suit and in numerical order. In this example lets use hearts. This Royal Flush would consist of an Ace, King, Queen, Jack and ten of hearts. The odds of getting a Royal flush are slim, but in the event two people at the table get a Royal Flush the pot is divided between the two players.
