In poker, hands with five cards of the same suit win. The player who has all five cards of the same suit is considered the high hand. The person who has a low hand loses the bet. If he has a pair or three of a kind, he or she will fold the cards. If he or she has four cards of the same rank, the high hand wins. When there are two pairs, the odd chip goes to the player with the higher card in each suit.

Before betting, players are required to make an ante. The ante amount varies from game to game. Bets are placed into the center pot. The player with the highest hand wins the pot. After each round of betting, the betting continues in a clockwise manner until everyone has called or folded. The limit of bets is two times the initial bet amount. It is customary for players to place an ante before each betting round.
