Answer#1 First of all you need to know that it is a high-card case which means that none of the three cards comes in the categories of run, color, trio or pair for that matter. So, all one is left to do is to compare the highest card of the two combinations then the second highest card and at last the third highest card. Hence, here in this case, since the first card (K) is of the same rank we move on to compare the 2nd card and we find that the opponent has a higher card, moreover the third card of the opponent is higher as well. So the combination K-10-Q is higher and thus the opponent will win the game.
Answer#2 Bluffing is a personal choice of the player. Typically, a player bluffs when he has seen his cards and he wants to misguide the other player into thinking that he possess the best cards or vice versa. However, it is not advisable to bluff when the size amount of the pot is huge. It’s way too risky for a novice player to bluff in such a situation.
Answer#3 A ‘show’ can occur only when there are only two player left on the table i.e. all the other players have dropped.
Answer#4 You cannot ask for a show if you’re a seen player and the other player is a blind player. A seen player can only either bet or drop out of the game.
Answer#5 If all the players are seen then you, after betting the min. amount, can ask for a sideshow from the person who has bet immediately before you. If the sideshow is accepted by that player, then both of you compare your cards privately and whosoever has the lower set of cards has to fold immediately. However, if both the cards are of the same level then the player who had asked for a compromise must fold his cards.
Answer#6 As seen in the hierarchy table below, straight run is always higher than a normal run because all the cards are of the same suit in straight run.
Combination of cards
What they’re made of
Set (Three of a Kind)/ Trio
Three cards of the same rank
Straight Run/Pure Sequence
Three consecutive cards of the same rank and same suit
Three consecutive cards of different suits
Three cards of the same suit
Two cards of the same rank and an odd card
Comparison of cards according to their rank.
Answer#7 Again, refer to the table above for this question and you will find that the sequence (6-5-4) is higher in rank in comparison to that of color (2-6-9).
Answer#9 Trio (a combination of three Aces- highest of all)
Answer#10 A player folds when he knows his cards are bad and he has no scope of winning the game. When a player folds he does not have to put in more money to drop out. He just loses the amount he had put in the pot initially.
