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 challenge is that they cannot BEAT you. If they draw first and pick a royal flush, you do too. That would be a tie not a win. If you draw first, you can either draw a royal flush and tie again or take all 4 aces and a king. No way to beat that with the remaining cards.
