poker hands

 Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. The numbers and letters on
the cards are called the "rank". The symbol on the card (heart, club,
diamond or spade) is the "suit"  The cards are ranked as follows
2 is the lowest value card in poker and
A is the highest.

 The cards "J-Q-K-A" are commonly referred to as Jack, Queen, King and
Ace. The 2 is sometimes called "deuce".

 The 4 Suits Spades Hearts Clubs Diamonds

 A poker hand can have up to 5 cards. Some combinations only use 4, 3 or 2
cards to make a hand. Poker hand combinations are ranked according to
the probability of that hand appearing. Rare combinations are
ranked high, the frequent common hands are ranked low

 There are a total of 8 poker hand  combinations. In poker, the suit of the
card is not significant. One suit is as good as another. The primary focus is
on the rank of the cards, and pairing your cards to make a hand

[9] There are 3 main categories of
poker hand combinations.
[1] Paired cards
[2] Consecutively ranked cards
[3] Same suit cards

[10] Let's take a look at the first one.
[1] Paired combinations
This is the most common poker hand. Pairing your cards is the
basic fundamental foundation of poker. To get 2 or more cards of
the same rank.

 Of the 8 total poker hands, 5 are paired combinations.
[1] A Pair [2] 2 Pair [3] 3 of a Kind [4] 4 of a Kind
[5] Full House

[12] A Pair of Sevens

[13] A Pair of Aces

[14] Two Pair

[15] Three of a Kind

[16] Four of a Kind

[17] Full House

[18] A full house has 5 cards, combining
both 3 of a kind, and a pair

[19] Hang in there (alt. Don't quit).. we are almost
finished. Just 2 more combinations
to go..
[2] Consecutively ranked cards
[3]Same suit cards
Let's look at [2]

[20] Consecutively ranked combination
is called a "straight". It consists of
5 cards ranked in order like
6-7-8-9-10 or 10-J-Q-K-A.
A straight can also be A-2-3-4-5.
making the ace the lowest value

[21] A Straight

[22] The last combination type is the
"flush". A flush is simply all 5 cards
of the same suit. The best flush
possible is an ace high flush.

[23] A Flush (ace high flush)

[24] And finally we come to the last
poker hand, the best possible
hand in poker. The "straight flush".
It combines the same suit
requirements of a flush with the
consecutive ranked requirement
of a straight.

[25] Straight Flush

[26] Now that we know all the
poker hands, let's summarize
the rankings.

[1] Straight Flush
[2] 4 of a Kind
[3] Full House
[4] Flush
[5] Straight
[6] 3 of a Kind

 The main thing to understand about the ranking of these hands is that the premium cards can be played from any position but the lower ranked cards should be folded unless forced to play from the blinds or in late position with the intention of stealing the blinds if the opponents are passive

Premium preflop hands (raise with these preflop)

Playable depending on position and other factors
T9 A8 K9 J9 A5 Q9 88 AJ A7 A4
A6 A3 KJ QJ 77 T8 K8 AT A2 98
K7 Q8 J8 KT JT 66 QT K6 87 K5
97 T7 K4 76 55 K3 Q7 44 J7 33

Everything below here is junk. Play these hands if forced from the blinds throw them away otherwise.
Ok, if you hate folding, play some of the top 2 rows of these from the button. Everything below that is junk.
