When it comes to some of these poker types, the flop consists of the first three board cards that are dealt.

The flop will be evaluated on a criterion of three basics:

  • How are the cards connected; are they close to each other in value and able to construct straights
  • How suitable are they and are there many cards of similar suit enabling flushes?
  • What’s the value of the cards; how many high cards are there like the kings and aces?
