In poker, the “blinds” are the amount of money that each player puts on the table before the cards are dealt. They are typically in the form of chips, usually referred to as “small” and “big” and rotate from player to player with each new deal. A player may either check or call a raise, which means that he or she wishes to place a wager. When a player calls a raise, the action passes to the player to his or her left.
When two players have the same hand, they are tied. In this case, the winners share the pot. The ranking of the next card is used to determine the winner. In five-card Poker, the ranking of the two hands is applied to the next card dealt in the hand. This is an example of the five-card-pair variant. In other versions of Poker, the kitty is only applied to identical pairs. If two players have the same hand, they split the pot.
The highest ranking hand is a pair. A pair is a pair of cards that have the same rank. If more than one player has a pair of five cards, the higher card wins. In two-card poker, ties are broken by the highest unmatched card or secondary pair. A full house is a winning hand. Once the two players are able to separate the ties, the game moves on to the next round. If you are lucky, you can win a tournament with a full house!
