What are the basic rules of poker?

Poker as we all know it is a game of skills. It is played from a standard pack of 52 cards. But some variants also use multiple packs or add a few cards called jokers. These cards are ranked from high to low, i.e., Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. There are four suits in a card, like spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs; however no suit is higher than another. Some of the poker games have Wild Cards that can take any suit and rank their possessor desires. For example, jokers can be used as wildcards.

When suit ranking is applied, there are two common conventions:

  • Alphabetical order – clubs are the lowest, followed by diamonds, hearts, and spades who are the highest. This ranking is used mostly in the game of bridge.
  • Alternating colors – diamonds are the lowest, followed by clubs, hearts, and spades who are the highest. This ranking is used mostly in the Chinese card game Big Two or Choh Dai Di.
