This is a bar bet. You bet another player "You cannot beat me at Poker even if we pick our hands out of a faceup deck, and you pick first."
* First, a player picks five cards from the face up deck.
* Then, the other player picks five of the remaining cards.
* Suits are all ranked the same
* There is one draw phase where either player may get new cards.
QUESTION 1: How can you win your bet if the other player goes first, and picks a Royal Flush (10-J-Q-K-A of the same suit) as most people would?
QUESTION 2: How can you win your bet if you go first?
The bet doesn't claim that I am going to win the hand - only that my opponent will *not* win the hand. In both the first and second cases, if I pick a royal flush, the best my opponent can do is to pick the same hand (in a different suit, of course). If we both have the same hand, then my opponent has not beaten me. I've tied the hand and won my bet.
