It seems simple to determine which poker hand wins the round. But, there are unexpected situations in which may not be clear for newbie players. Well, for any beginners, the very first thing you have to do is to memorize the rankings of poker hands. Which hand beats which?
By the time when you have memorized the hierarchy of the hands, the next thing that you have to do is to practice reading the table and find out which hand is the best combination you have with yours.
Three Rules that Matter
As a matter of fact, there are three basic rules that shouldn’t be bent by any newbie when playing poker and when determining the poker hand. Well most of the time, it is quite simple to determine who wins the round.
If a player has a flush and no one else does or has better rank than it, then that guy is the clear winner.
To avoid any confusions when you are in the actual game, remember these three rules.
Rule # 1. Make the best possible hand using 5 cards (2 cards from yours, 3 on the community table).
Rule # 2. All cards are used to decide the strength of every player’s hand.
Rule # 3. No cards outside the best five will have bearing on the hand’s strength.
