    Question Trying to make a Poker Dice game..!


    I'm new to java programming. And the way of thinking (like a programmer). I can't come up with an idea how I can fix the this obstacle.

    I have now 5 dices that roll & random give a number from 1-6 after I rolled them I check them with a switch method to change it to king, dame, ... etc..

    Now this is my problem.
    I have no idea how I can check the dices with an 'if' statement if they rolled pairs, three of a kind, ... etc
    Also I need to figure out how I can let the user chose what dices he want to keep and what the ones are he want to roll again.

    I tried many things already! liek putting resultaat in a new array but seems java doesn't work that way ^^

    Java Code:
    public class Model {
        public Model() {
        public static String roll() {
            int[] dobbels = new int[6];
            Random rand = new Random();
            String resultaat="";
            String [] check = new String [20];
            int i;
            for (i = 1; i < dobbels.length; i++) {
                dobbels[i] = rand.nextInt(7) + 1;
                resultaat+="u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen " + i + " een ";
                switch (dobbels[i]) {
                    case 1:
                        resultaat += "aas \n";
                    case 2:
                        resultaat += "Boer \n";
                    case 3:
                        resultaat += "Dame \n";
                    case 4:
                        resultaat += "Koning \n";
                    case 5:
                        resultaat += "10 \n";
                        resultaat += "9 \n";
                //   System.out.println("Dobbelsteen " + i + " geeft " + resultaat);
            return  resultaat ;
    my output is this

    Java Code:
    u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen 1 een 9 
    u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen 2 een 9 
    u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen 3 een Boer 
    u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen 4 een Dame 
    u hebt gerold met dobbelsteen 5 een 9

    and sorry for bad english

    How would you do this by hand or in your head, without a computer? Pretend you have a really dumb friend who doesn't know anything about poker. Write out some simple rules that this friend can follow to achieve your goal. Remember, he's really dumb, so make sure your instructions are as simple as possible- if one instruction can be broken up into two instructions, do it. When you have that all written out, you'll have an algorithm that should be pretty easy to translate to code.
