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?
You may win your bet, easily. If all suits are equal, you could simply pick a royal flush of another suit, thus equaling your opponents hand. Your bet was that they couldn't beat you, not that you would have the greater hand.
The same would apply if you picked second, you would just pick a royal flush of any suit
