One hand game involves one player playing against a dealer. On the gaming table, 3 gaming areas (boxes) are marked. Each box contains 2 fields for bets. One of them is called ANTE (initial bet), the other is BET (main bet). Before each card deal, the player makes an initial bet - puts one or more game chips on the ANTE field. To do this, click on the corresponding chip and on the box on which it should be placed, or select the necessary chip with the mouse cursor and transfer it to the playing field. The bet on ANTE must be at least 1 and no more than 100. After that, the player clicks on the "Deal" button. During the deal, the dealer deals 5 cards to the player and himself.
The cards are dealt one by one and are placed face down on the table. However, the last dealer card opens. The player looks at his cards and determines the value of the received deal. Sooner or later, the player will have to compare his hand with the dealers. Whose cards are higher, will be the winner. One dealer's card is on the table open, and this is all the information available to the player.
Each hand refers to one of 11 poker combinations. The weakest combination (“no game”) is called empty, the rest are significant. One or another combination is determined by the merit of the cards received, as well as their suits, but the order in which the player received the cards does not matter. Listed below are the poker combinations in descending order of seniority. For convenience, a brief summary of the various combinations is given below:
Royal Flush - the highest poker hand - 5 high cards of the same suit (A-K-Q-J-10).
Straight Flush - A straight in the same suit.
Four of a kind - 4 cards of the same rank, for example, 4 jacks or 4 fives (plus one other card).
Full House - 3 cards of one rank and two of the other, for example, 6-6-6-K-K.
Flash - 5 cards of the same suit.
Street - 5 consecutive cards, for example, 9-8-7-6-5. Card suits do not matter. Ace can be both the oldest (A-K-Q-J-10) and the youngest combination card (5-4-3-2-A). A sequence with an ace inside (3-2-A-K-Q) is not considered a straight.
Three - 3 cards of the same rank, for example, 9-9-9-Q-4.
Two pairs - two cards of the same rank and two other cards, for example, A-A-5-5-10.
A pair is two cards of the same rank, for example, 8-8-K-4-2.
Ace-king - an ace and a king of arbitrary suits, for example, A-K-8-7-3.
There is no game - cards do not make up any of the above combinations, for example, J-10-7-5-2.
The higher the combination, the higher the value of the hand. If two hands belong to the same combination, then their relative value is determined, as in regular club poker, depending on the seniority of the cards. We will explain this with examples:
Ace-king A-K-J-3-2 is higher than A-K-10-9-8 (jack is more than ten).
A pair of 5-5-4-3-2 is higher than 4-4-A-K-Q (comparing the value of paired cards).
A pair of 5-5-Q-3-2 is higher than 5-5-J-10-9 (a queen is older than a jack).
Two pairs of A-A-2-2-3 are higher than K-K-Q-Q-A (comparing the value of the cards of the highest pair).
Street A-K-Q-J-10 is the higher, 5-4-3-2-A is the lower.
Full House 3-3-3-2-2 is older than 2-2-2-AA (a card from a trio is more significant than a pair).
