If you want to play poker it's essential to learn the poker hand ranking system that's standard across all variants of the game. In Texas Holdem Poker each player is dealt 2 starting cards known as hole cards, this is followed by 5 community cards which are dealt in 3 stages face-up (The Flop, The Turn and The River). Each player has to make the best possible hand with their own hole cards and any of the community cards available. Players can bet/call, raise or fold after each stage, once the final stage is complete the remaining hands are compared and the winning hand is determined by the universal hand ranking system listed below.
A royal flush is a poker hand where all five cards are in sequence from 10 to Ace and all from the same suit.
