# Hearts

"Hearts" in poker refers to one of the four suits in a standard deck of cards.

## Understanding Hearts

In poker, Hearts is one of the four suits in a standard deck of cards, along with Diamonds, Clubs, and Spades. Each suit has 13 cards: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, and King. Thus there are 13 Hearts in a deck.

## Significance of Hearts

The suit of a card in poker can be significant in determining the ranking of a hand. For instance, all cards of the same suit (such as all hearts) can form a flush, which is a relatively strong hand in poker.

## Hearts in Poker Hands

Hearts can be part of various poker hands, such as flushes, straight flushes, and royal flushes, when all the cards are of the same suit. The suit itself doesn't have a ranking value, meaning a flush in Hearts is equal to a flush in any other suit.

• Example 2: In a game of Omaha, a player holds four cards, two of which are Hearts. They hope for at least two more Hearts to appear on the board to make a flush.
