Certainly this isn’t one of the most acclaimed varieties of poker but still commonly played. It can be played by up to 7 players. It is played with 1 deck of 52 cards, with a joker. Interestingly, joker can be used only as an ace, or to finish off a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or royal flush. The essential detail here to remember is other than the normal ranking of hands we’ve one more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (4 Aces and the Joker). Astonishingly, five aces defeats every other hand including royal flush. Each player is given 7 cards. The cards are aligned to create two hands; a two card hand and a five card hand.
