How To Play Zynga Poker
Hopefully you understand the basics of how to check, call, raise or fold, and what each of these mean.
But just in case:
Check - If your current bet matches the highest bet made by all other players currently, and you do not wish to increase the bet you can choose to Check. This costs you no extra than what you've already bet, and you stay in the game.
Call - Your current bet is below the current highest bet, to continue to play you will need to match the highest current bet or raise. To Call is to match the current highest bet, without taking the betting higher of your own accord. This will cost you the different between your current bet and the highest bet.
Raise - To Raise is to increase the amount you bet on a particular round above the current highest bet. You can choose how much you wish to Raise by using the scroll bar. Some Raises must be in set increments, so be aware of this.
Fold - To Fold is to decide that you do not want to continue with the round, whether by betting (calling or raising) or checking (if no one else raises). When you Fold you no longer have a chance of winning the round, and any chips you have bet previously in the round so far are lost as part of the kitty for the eventual winner.
All In - To go All In means that you are betting all your remaining chips on the round, so this is a big risk. In some cases, this is a special version of a Raise, in that you are so confident in winning the round, you are going to bet all of your chips on it. Another case is if the bidding in a round goes higher than the chips you have remaining, instead of being asked to Call you will need to go All In if you wish to continue. If you win, you may have the opportunity to win quite a lot if others are also bidding high, however you could lose it all and be kicked from the table.
The hardest part for many people is remembering the order of the hands, basically what wins over what. So if you just want to check the hands, without going over the entire tutorial again, here they are:
1. Royal Flush - A Royal Flush is a Straight Flush with Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
2. Straight Flush - A Straight Flush is a sequence of five consecutive cards, like 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, but all of the same suit. This is the highest ranking hand in the game. Highest card wins in a tie.
3. Four of a Kind - Four of a Kind is four cards of the same rank, like four 6s or four Jacks. It's ranked above a Full House, but below a Straight Flush. A higher ranked quad beats lower, so four Jacks beats four 6s.
4. Full House - If you've got a three of a kind and a two of a kind, you've got a Full House. It's ranked below Four of a Kind, but above a Flush. If another player has a Full House, whomever has the highest ranking three of a kind wins.
5. Flush - A Flush is a hand of five cards of the same suit, but not in consecutive order. It's ranked above a Straight, but below a Full House. If two players have a Flush, the player with the highest card wins. If both players share the highest card the next highest wins, and so on.
6. Straight - A Straight is a hand of five consecutive cards not all of the same suit. It's ranked above Three of a Kind, but below a Flush. The winner between two Straights is determined by the highest card in the Straight.
7. Three of a Kind - Three of a Kind is three cards of the same rank, plus two unmatched cards. It's ranked above Two Pair, but below a Straight. The highest value Three of a Kind wins above another Three of a Kind. In the case of two players having the same Three of a Kind, the highest unmatched card ('kicker') will determine the winner.
8. Two Pair - Two sets of two cards of the same ranks is called a Two Pair. It ranks above a Pair, but below a Three of a Kind. The highest pair wins when two Two Pair hands are compared, and if the hands are still tied the lower pairs are compared. If both pairs are the same as the opposing pairs, the last card (or 'kicker') determines the winner.
9. Pair - A Pair is two cards of the same rank, plus three unmatched cards. It beats a hand of unmatched cards, but any other hand will beat a Pair. If another player has a Pair, the highest Pair wins. If the Pairs are equal, the unmatched cards ('kickers') are compared in descending order to determine the winner.
10. High Card - A High Card hand means that all cards in the hand are unmatched. This class of hand ranks below all others in poker. If two High Card hands are compared, the cards are compared in descending order, highest card wins.
