Here, we'll introduce you to one of the best card games ever invented: poker. Poker is both very challenging and very addictive, and a player could win or lose everything in a single round. This makes it one of the most intense card games to play. If you are new to the game of poker and willing to put the time and money down to play it, you are likely to enjoy it for years to come. While poker is known as a card game, it is really a people's game that is only played with cards. Cards have very little to do with the game; instead, players have to use strategy, math and knowledge of their opponents to win a round. There are multiple variations of poker, but they all share one thing in common: you have to use the best five cards in your hand to win a game. Each poker game consists of a standards deck of 52 cards, with the numbers 2 through 10, a Jack, a Queen, a King and an Ace. The different suits in the deck are hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades. In terms of suits, the cards are all in equal value. For example, a nine of spades isn't worth any more than a nine of hearts.
