Poker is played from a standard pack of 52 cards. (Some variant games use multiple packs or add a few cards called jokers.) The cards are ranked (from high to low) Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace. (Ace can be high or low, but is usually high). There are four suits (spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs); however, no suit is higher than another. All poker hands contain five cards, the highest hand wins.
Poker ( or hold em specifically) takes minutes to learn but a lifetime to master.
It's all based on odds. The less likely you are to get a collection of up to five cards, the higher it tends to rank.

In Descending order Poker hands can be:

Straight Flush. Five consecutive cards in order of the same suit (Diamonds, Hearts, Clubs, Spades)
Four of a kind
Full House ( three of a kind & a pair ex. 444KK in case of a tie, the higher three of a kind wins. ie. 44422 beats 333AA)
Flush (five cards of the same suit)
Straight (five consecutive cards, suit agnostic ie. 12345)
Three of a kind
Two Pairs
A Pair
High card

Key: A = Ace K = King Numbers = Corresponding Number Card
Suits are a subdivision of the cards. They only matter in flushes or flush straights. Any tie no mentioned above goes to the 'kicker' card. Or highest card not used in the combination. ex. If two players have a pair of aces the kicker would decide the winner. Between. AA123 & AA567 the later wins with a '7 kicker'

Few other notes — Poker has many variations, draw, stud, hold em, but most or all hold true to this ranking of hands. The rest is just gameplay and betting. Remember, a flush always beats a straight.I regularly play poker at pokabunga.
