Kicker Card

Kickers or side cards are the leftover cards after a poker hand is declared. Although Kickers do not take part in determining the rank of a hand, they are essential to declare the winner if players have the same hand. Thus, a Kicker card can also be called a Tie Breaker Card in the game of poker.

For example :

The poker hand J-J-10-5-2 is ranked as a pair of jacks. The 10, 5, and 2 are kickers. This hand would defeat any poker hand with no pair, or with a lower-ranking pair, and lose to any higher-ranking poker hand. The kickers can be used to break ties between other poker hands that also have a pair of jacks. For example, J-J-K-3-2 would win (because its K kicker outranks the 10), but J-J-10-4-3 would lose (because its 4 is outranked by the 5).

Terms of Use

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
