How to play in English?
I know a majority of the comments to this are going to be "lol idiot doesn't know how to play Poker, and is too stupid to realize that there's a tutorial on how to play in the begining of the game", but I generally have a hard time understanding most card games. As a kid, I basically just baught Pokemon cards for the lulz, and to brag to my friends, only to see that they had much cooler cards than me. Anywho, the tutorial in the begining of the game uses several terminologies without explaining what the ♥♥♥♥ they mean that confuse me, and I was wondering if someone could provide me with an easy to understand explanation on how to play. I've just been staring at the cards waiting for cutscenes rather than playing the game for about an hour now.

There are a lot of online flash games that will have you go through an interactive tutorial, which is much easier to follow. Try "Guvernor of Texas 2". It´s a great start up guide.

Hello, welcome and thank you for trying out "The Internet." There are many things on The Internet - so many, infact, that much of it has become disorganized and hard to find. Thankfully, some people have created things called, "Search Engines."

Search Engines - such as google.com - can help people find things they are looking for or things they want to learn more about. For example, someone who wants to know how to play Texas Hold'em might go to a Search Engine and type, "How to play Texas Hold'em" or even "beginner's guide to Texas Hold'em." Go ahead, take a few moments right now and give that a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised at what you will find.

Once again, we are pleased to see you are giving "The Internet" a try and hope you will enjoy your time here.

A majority of the websites I came across were totally useless. Whatever, either way I figured out how to play after only 5 attempts.

Do you browse forums just to find things to be snarky on and to get out the angst in your life? Why not be a better person and just google for him; rather then writing a short essay.

It's alright man! I practically live on the internet. I know when people are being snarky as$holes, why, and how to deal with them.

All you need to know is this hand beats that hand. That's it. I do admit I don't understand why some hands beat others.

Generally, you have
High Card: You have one card that's a higher value than the other cards in your hand.
Pair: Simple enough, you have two cards of the same value.
Two Pair: Just what it says.
Three of a Kind: Again, exactly what it says on the tin.
Full House: A pair and three of a kind at the same time.
Straight: Your hand is a run of cards in consequetive values.
Flush: All your cards are the same suit.
Straight Flush: A straight that is all one suit.
Royal Flush: The highest straight flush - A, 10, J, K, Q of the same suit.
