There are several variations of Poker. A typical game awards the pot to the player who has the highest hand, while some games award it to the player with the lowest hand. A flush is a sequence of five consecutive cards of the same suit, regardless of rank. Straights and flushes are not considered in some variations. A pair is a set of two cards with different ranks. If a player has two pairs of cards with different ranks, the pot will be split between the two players.
Another variation is called suited, which refers to a starting hand where two or more cards of the same suit are dealt. If you are dealt a pair of aces, your hand is considered suited. Otherwise, your hand is called unsuited. If the other player has a two-suited hand, you have “doubled” if your opponent flopped a three-card straight. Otherwise, you are dealt a two-high straight.
In poker, the amount of money you bet is also limited to the number of chips in the pot at any given time. Depending on the betting limit, you may be able to raise your bet by as many as 14 chips, but you should also know when to fold. You should turn your cards over to the dealer before deciding what to do. Once you have made a decision about your bet size, you can choose to raise your bet or fold it.
