games Hand Rankings
deck used in most Internet online poker games is a
standard 52-card deck with no wild cards or jokers.
It has four suits: spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs.
There are ten ranks in each suit.
The ace is the highest-ranking card, followed by the
king, queen, jack, and ten through deuce, in descending
order. In split-pot games, an ace is also used as
the lowest-ranking card for forming a low straight
or a low hand. In such "split" games, an
ace is like two cards in one; it's simultaneously
the highest and lowest card in the deck. Because of
this unique dual attribute, an ace in your Omaha/8
or 7-stud/8 hand is a decided advantage.
online poker games Hand rankings are arranged in order
of probability. The rarer the hand, the more valuable
it is, so the higher it's ranked. Here are the online

is just an example of a flop for 88, which isn't a
great flop, but against just a couple of callers it
is well worth pushing on.
The problem with this hand is, of course, the position.
Getting hands like this in early position can be a
problem in loose games. If the games are very loose,
and you know you'll get a lot of callers, then you
should probably just limp with the medium-sized pairs,
maximizing the odds you get. But in a more typical
loose game, where you might get anywhere from about
three to six callers, it's probably a good idea to
raise early and try to get the number of callers down
to two or three.
You can't have the button every time.
When analyzing medium pairs, many people work under
a fallacy that you have to flop a set or an overpair
to have any value. This hand is an example of a hand
that is worth playing aggressively past the flop but
isn't a flopped set or overpair. From late position,
you should almost always raise loose limpers and probably
raise what I'd call typical limpers. Tight limpers
are a different stony . And early position is a different
thing. One of the reasons that You should almost always
raise loose limpers is that you'll get enough flops
like the one I got so that you don't have to flop
a set to lead the betting to the river.
