Poker is a game played by two or more people using cards. The standard game is played with a 52-card deck with four of each of the four suits: hearts, spades, clubs, and diamonds. Most poker games use chips instead of cash, which makes counting and stacking them easier. Players often trade chips among themselves, with each chip representing a certain dollar amount.

In the game of poker, the winning hand is the one in which one or more players have a pair of cards of the same rank. If two players have a pair of the same rank, the higher pair wins the pot. A pair can also contain an odd card. A pair of jacks and tens is considered to be a higher pair than a pair of queens or a pair of two aces.

In poker, players take turns betting on the highest hand. During this betting phase, they reveal their cards and the player with the best hand wins the pot. The game can be played with anywhere from two to seven players. If a game is a draw, the pot is divided equally among the players. There are many variations of poker, so the rules of the game can change from game to game.

A pair of kings is a poor hand, but not a bad one. In a game of limit, a player with the best hand can only win the pot once. Any other calls or bets that the player makes after this round are not considered.
