Poker is a fun game and when the concept of betting is added to it, it becomes more interesting and of course requires better skills as well. Here are the fundamental rules, and how the hands are ranked.

The fundamentals

Poker domino online is played using a standard card pack. The cards are ranked normally – Ace, King, Queen, and Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2. There are four standard suits and all are considered equal. Every poker hand has 5 cards and the highest hand wins.
