@Tyson Here’s a single hand of 5 card poker. It goes thru one deck (5 cards, 10 hands) before it reshuffles the deck. Tap the screen for a new hand. It also shows you the result of each hand which could be “High Card”, “1 Pair”, “2 Pair”, “3 of a Kind”, “Straight”, “Flush”, “Full House”, “4 of a Kind”, “Straight Flush”, “Royal Flush”. If you look at the function check(), you’ll see that it doesn’t require 2 million “if” statements as mentioned above, just 19 and a table to determine the combination of the hand. I suggest that you learn about tables. They’re very important and can save you tons of code. This probable doesn’t do exactly what you want, but I figured you would want the check() function to determine the combination of the hand and this code shows it’s use. Look over the code and if you have any questions let me know. I’ll go into more detail on any section you request.
