Generally, poker is a card game played by a group of people around an oval table. Each player is dealt a hand of cards in turn. The player who makes the best hand wins the pot. Players may win by bluffing, revealing cards, or betting their hand.
The first player to make a bet is known as the bettor. This is typically the player who has the highest poker combination. In some games, the ace may be treated as the lowest card. The player who is called must match the previous bet.
If there are ties, the highest unmatched card breaks the tie. If there are more than one pair, the second highest card breaks the tie. The higher card wins if there are more than one five of a kind hand.
The next player to make a bet is called the raiser. If he raises, he must make a bet that is equal to or greater than the previous bettor’s bet. If he does not raise, he must fold.
There are three kinds of forced bets. The first, the straight flush, is the highest possible hand. It starts with the highest value card and continues to the fifth card.
In the case of straight flush, a high ace can be used to break ties, if the other four cards are also of the same suit. The ace can also be used to break ties when a player is holding a pair.
