There exist different types of video poker, and one of them is Texas Holdem. Texas Holdem poker is a community card game where each player can use any combination of the 5 community cards and the player's own two hole cards which make a poker hand, in contrast to poker variants like Stud Poker or Draw Poker where a separate individual hand is hold by each player.

Because of a limited number of Holdem starting hands, most strategy guides are eager to bring out the information about each of these 169 starting hands - and - as strange as it may seem - players are eagerly look up for this information for for some of them that's the basis of success. These 169 starting hands separate Holdem from other poker games where the number of starting card combinations forces strategy guides to group hands into big categories. Another result of this small number is the proliferation of colloquial names for individual hands.
