In poker, you must use five cards, some of which can
be so-called community cards, ie cards that are common to all players. Out of
the five cards, it is then a matter of forming a better composition of the
cards than the other players. The card compositions rank as follows:
Straight Flush: five cards from 10 to aces of the same suit (eg 10, Kn, D, K,
Aces in spades) in two of these the winner is decided here in certain games on
the suit, otherwise there is a split pot.
Flush: five cards in a row of the same suit (eg 4,5,6,7,8 in hearts), in the

different suits), in two straights, the winner is decided on the one with the
highest card in a row.
