Poker is a card game where players bet on the outcome of a hand. The game uses a standard 52-card pack plus jokers. The game is usually played with one pack, but sometimes two packs of contrasting colors are used to speed up the game. The first dealer deals the cards to players, while the second dealer shuffles the other pack. The previous dealer takes the dealt cards and arranges them to the left, then passes the shuffled pack to the next dealer.

There are ten ways to win a game of poker. The lowest possible hand is seven-five-four-3-2, although the ace may also be treated as the lowest. If more than one player has five of a kind, the higher card wins the hand. As a result, the best hand is a five-of-a-kind.

The game of Poker is played with any number of players, although 6 to eight players is ideal. The total bets by all players in a single hand is called the pot. The player with the highest-ranking hand wins the pot if no one else calls their bet. Poker is also known as bluffing.

The last player in the round raises the bet to twenty cents and then calls. If Dennis raises, he has three of a kind. As a beginner, you can start off by playing with five-card draw poker. Once you are comfortable with these rules, you can move on to more complicated games.
