Telesina hand rankings are different to those of other poker games. Be careful and pay attention!
Suits are worth considering in Telesina as a hand in Hearts (the highest suit) stands a better chance than the same hand in a lowest suit (spades). In the event two players have a flush, the flush with the highest suit wins. If both players have the same suit (very unlikely as Telesina is played with a stripped deck) then the highest flush wins the pot.a10852
