Highest Card or Garden Card in Poker involves a significant place in poker hand ranking. There are generally 52 cards in a deck and the cards in the deck rank from higher to low i.e. from Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and moving on from 10 to 2. In a standard poker game that is played in a formal casino or in a worldwide organized tournament of international poker games, no ranking is given here between the poker suits for comparing the hands in the game. Hence, for example, there is equal relation between the king of spades and the king of hearts. However, it should be noted that as the ranking of the suit is sometimes used for some other purposes like allocating the seats, deciding upon the initial one to bet on along with allocating the odd chip while the pot splits for dividing it equally.
Generally, a poker hand comprises five cards. The hand categories in poker are ranged from higher to lower. Any hand in the lower category is beatable by any hand in the higher category. For example, any two pairs are beatable by any three pairs. If the hands rank in the similar category, the rank of the hand that is much better than that of the other beats the other one.
In poker game, where a player receives more than five cards and chooses five for the formation of a poker hand, the remaining cards will resist playing any part in the ranking. The ranks of poker always depend upon the five cards only; these hands will be equal if these cards are equal, irrespective of whatever the rank is comprised by any unused cards.
However, Ace is regarded as the highest card in the card games. Sometimes, in some games, it also refers to the numeric 1, but in most of the cases if confirms to be the highest one. Ace King is the very strong starting hand in the game of Texas Holdem poker in its no-limit version. However, you would need to connect with the board for an Ace King; otherwise, you will be connected to Ace High only for the showdown at the end of the game. In some circumstance, it makes the king problematic.
The limped out position of an ace king in a multi way is the worst possible outcome for this hand following with missing the flop. Hence, the hands should be usually folded under such circumstances instead of being seriously against the opponents. Remember, every player will resist playing ace-king in the game of poker against multiple opponents. In fact it is a drawing hand that you should improve anyhow for winning a showdown. At the similar time, this hand holds a strong likelihood for the improvement to become the best hand, you will definitely receive a top pair with a top kicker with any of the ace or king. This makes the ace king to be a strong hand to play positively until a resistance is encountered, both in the later betting and in the flop.
