    Hi Lenny! I just wanted to say real quick ... Welcome to the forum and thanks for bringing the Poker Forum back to life! I'll start with a question thread. I will title it How do you play Poker? I have no idea and need full in depth detail in words I can understand . LOL Just kidding! I'm sure that is a book you wouldn't want to write. lol Again, welcome to the forum and I can't wait to see those offers .... especially because of the news of certain US states signing online gambling (poker) into law recently.

    In my opinion, I think 5 card stud is a easy game to learn to play. Even 5 card draw is a easy first time poker players hit.

    Again, can not stress the importance of knowing your hand rankings well, before you attempt to play poker.

    You can find them here. Hope this helps.

    Following is the ranking of poker hands ordered from highest(best) hand to lowest(worst) hand.

    Straight Flush - 5 cards of the same suit in sequence
    • Example: A,K,Q,J,10 All spades
    • Probability: 1 in 65,000
    • Four of a kind - 4 cards of the same Rank
    • Example: Q,Q,Q,Q,4 Different kinds
    • Probability: 1 in 4,000
    • Full house - 3 cards of the same rank and 2 different cards of same rank
    • Example: J,J,J Of Different ranks K,K of different ranks
    • Probability: 1 in 700
    • Flush - 5 cards of the Same suit
    • Example: 5,7,Q,J,A All spades
    • Probability: 1 in 500
    • Straight - 5 cards in sequence, but not of the same suit
    • Example: 10,9,8,7,6 Not the same suit
    • Probability: 1 in 250
    • Three of a Kind - 3 cards with the same rank
    • Example: 10,10,10,7,5 Different suits
    • Probability: 1 in 50
    • Two Pairs - 2 cards with the same rank, and 2 different cards with same rank
    • Example: K,K,5,5,Q Different suits
    • Probability: 1 in 20
    • One Pair - 2 cards of same rank
    • Example: 4,4,7,J,Q Different suits
    • Probability: 1 in 2.3
    • Nothing - Different Cards of Different Suits
    • Example: 9,4,7,J,Q Different suits
    • Probability: 1 in 2

    Seems to me, and again, I don't have a lot of experience for playing poker online, but poker rules are quite similar online as they are in a real poker game with other people in person. You must have a better hand ranking than anyone else. Also, if a poker room has a set of different rules, they usually place them right on the site so you can become familiar with them.

    I'll look around, and see what I can find.

    Thanks for the questions.

    Hi Mimi33, Hand ranking simply means best hand possible, down to the lowest hand possible.

    You are doing great!!

    I'm glad!

    Remember while playing poker, everyone likes to bluff once in a while. That means they bet higher than you, even though in actuality they don't have anything in their hand. They are "Bluffing" They are trying to get you to fold, because you believe they have a hand to beat you. Again, when actually, they have nothing. Some people are really good at this, and it is something to watch for when playing poker with real people instead of online.

    Just my tip for the day. LOL

    Have a great day Mimi33!

    A great poker face is a very important aspect to the game.

    Watching others faces when they get their cards is very important.
