My brother-in-law was sitting in the kitchen a while ago when he noticed a deck of cards on the table. He picked them up and the first five cards he turned over made a full-house. Happy with himself he laughed then asked what beats a full-house.
My daughter (8) piped up: “A royal flush!”
We both laughed at her knowledge, but she wasn’t finished.
“Four of a kind…”
“A straight flush.”
Just when we thought she was done she added
“…and if you’re playing with jokers you could have five of a kind.”
Confession: I didn’t teach her the rules, but I did discover she had dug out this poker-hands table a few days ago that I made up some time ago (mainly because I can never remember the answer to questions like “what beats a full-house?”
Obviously, these are the chip-denominations I use. If you’d like to use it feel free to cut that section out or re-number as you see fit. Whatever.
