Poker Hands and Rankings - Lesson 2

Did You Know: You earn VIP points for every quiz completed. Use these points to level up and reach VIP 5.

In this lesson, you'll further test your knowledge of poker hands and rankings and learn to identify hands at "showdown."

Showdown occurs after all five community cards have been dealt, the last round of betting has ended, and more than one player remains. The remaining players then show their hands to determine the winner, who is the player with the best five card hand.

Remember: these five cards can be any combination of the two cards you were dealt and the five community cards in the center of the table... you don't have to use your cards at all!

We'll also get familiar with commonly used poker terminology. For example, when you don't use either of the two cards dealt to you, instead relying on the five community cards to make your hand, it's called "playing the board."

Another thing to remember: an Ace can be either high or low when making a straight!

These are both straights, but the second hand is stronger and would beat a player holding the first hand.

Go ahead and see how you do with the questions!

If you feel ready you can now proceed to the final lesson of our Poker Hands and their Rankings Lesson 3!
