know that altogether there are 52 cards, out of which every single card has a rank
and a suit. The ranks are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.

combinations the suit plays a great role. In the game of Poker a 'hand' is
consisting of 5 cards; even though at Texas Hold'em there are 7 cards that you are
playing with (out of which two cards you hold and the other 5 are common to every
single player). Now let's take a closer look at the process of the game.
The game begins with putting money in the pot by every single player, this first bet
is called 'ante'. In addition, each player gets two cards which are face down (you
can see only your own cards). Two round of bets take place, called 'blinds' and
these are forced bets. After these the 'flop' follows where three face-up cards are
dealt. These cards are common for every player; another round of betting takes
place. The 'turn' is when the 4th common face-up card is dealt and players again
place a bet. After this the 5th common card is dealt, this is known as 'river' and
the players place their last betting. When these bets have been made, the 'showdown'
begins, and at this point each player shows his cards. Depending on what kind of
card combinations he can make, the one who has the highest hand is the winner and
owns the pot. In order to make the best possible hand you must know the different
