Google is your friend, but there are different kinds of poker. Texas Hold 'em is the most well known if I'm not mistaken. Feel free to correct me on this one.

Wasn't it something to check your two cards with the ones (five) on the table?

Well, these would be all the possible 5-card hands (in order):

-Royal Flush (Ace high straight flush)
-Straight flush (5 cards in a row, all the same suit)
-4 of a kind (self-explanitory)
-Full House (3 of one card, and 2 of another card)
-Flush (5 cards, all the same suit)
-Straight (5 cards in a row)
-Three of a Kind (self explanitory)
-Two Pair (self explanitory)
-One Pair (self explanitory)
-High Card. (self explanitory)

Yup, those are the ones. Also, the highest always counts, right?

Yeah highest always counts, but things can get a little confusing with multiple full houses, mostly in hold 'em though.

Brief rules of Texas Hold 'em.

Players sit around a table that sits anywhere between 2 and 7 players. There can be more but it slows everything down. A "button" is passed around the table in a clockwise direction, showing where the "blinds" are being cast. Blinds are mandatory bets that must be made before anyone gets their cards, and this functions to keep the game moving and start up a pot for each hand, rather than everyone folding and not paying a price for doing so. There are two blinds, small and big, where the big blind is equal to twice the size of the small. In a WPT tournament, these can reach $10,000 or more. If a player cannot meet the value of the blind they have to pay, they must go "all in" and use every chip they have on that hand.

Each player receives 2 cards. These are THEIR cards, their "pocket" cards as they are sometimes called. Players must then make a bet on the value of those 2 cards, different players preferring different combinations. For example, I don't play much but I say you can't beat Ace/King, suited or unsuited. It gives you an Ace High plus a King to match up later on. Some players prefer pairs of cards or suited hands.

Each player then decides to call (where they pay a bet equal to the value of the big blind to stay in the hand), raise (where they call plus increase the necessary bet to stay in the hand, but it must raised by at least 50% above the big blind's value) or fold/pass (where they throw away their hand and wait for the next hand). The betting goes around the table a maximum of 3 times, always clockwise. If no raises are made, the person who posted the small blind only has to pay the remainder between the blind and the bet, whereas the big blind poster doesn't need to pay anything at all.

Once bets have been made and anyone who wants to has folded, a deal then deals 3 "Community Cards". These are cards that anyone can use to make up a 5-card hand (3 Community cards + their own). At this point, players should revalue their bets and decide on a strategy. Players have the option to "check" (no money is placed in pot by them and next card is seen if all players check), "bet" (which acts like a raise) or fold. If anyone is all in, they do not have these options, but are in the hand until the end.

A fourth community card is then dealt after discarding the card on top of it (sometimes called "Burn one turn one"), called the "Turn" card. Checking, betting and folding happens as normal. A common manuver at this point is the "check-raise"; one player checks, sending out the signal he/she is waiting for something good. Another player raises, seeing a weakness and wanting to put them out of the pot and take the blinds. In return, the original checker then RE-raises. This can get quite mad in some major tournaments.

A final community card is dealt, called the "River" card (as many people 'drown' at this point). A final round of betting is made.

If more than one player is still in the hand at the end of the final round of betting, players reveal their pocket cards and the highest combination of cards wins. In the event that two players have the same combination, the highest number wins or, in the event of a tie on that front, the highest card in their 5 that is not part of their main combination is then compared. This is called the "kicker".

It's complicated but it's damned good fun.
