Here is a simple exercise that I recommend for new players. Take a 52 card deck, shuffle it several times, and deal three cards face up. Pretend that you’re looking at the flop in a game that you’re playing. Now, ask yourself these questions: “What is the best possible hand? What is the best possible draw? What did I have for breakfast?” (Okay, you can scratch that last question. I was just checking to see if you were paying attention.)

These are the things to look for: Is the board paired? (A full house and quads are only possible if the board is paired.) Are the cards all the same suit? (A flush is only possible if there are three cards of the same suit on the board or if you’re near a toilet—sorry, I’ll try to be serious.) How wide is the gap between the cards? (If the gap is wider than two cards between each card, a straight is not possible.)
