A player’s equity in a hand depends on how many outs they have. In a game such as poker, a player can calculate how likely it is to win a hand using the outs that are available to him. For example, if he has three aces and a king, and his opponent holds a pair and three spades, his chances of winning are 34%. If, on the other hand, he holds a pair and a three, his equity is 0%.
There are three types of hands: two pair, one pair, and “nothing”. The first type of hand consists of two pairs of one rank, plus one card of another rank. The second type of hand is called a “three of a kind.” A hand of one pair, on the other hand, contains two or three cards of the same rank. Finally, a hand with no pair, or “nothing,” is not a pair at all. In this case, the high card is used to break ties.
Different poker softwares use different color-coding systems to indicate which hands are selected. A straight is five cards of the same suit, while a flush has five cards of the same suit. A straight is a higher hand, while a flush is a lower hand.
