Poker uses a standard pack of playing cards; there are 52 cards. The
card ranking is as follows Ace (the highest), King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8,
7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 (the lowest), Ace (this may also be the lowest card, but
it is usually the highest).
There are four suits. They are: spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. No suit
is higher than another is. All poker hands contain five cards, the
highest hand wins.
The use of Wild Cards depends on the variations. A wild card can be a separate
card added like a joker or you may specify a certain card in the standard
deck to be wild like deuces, or whatever else.
The number of cards dealt is dependant on what type of game you are playing.
