Poker hand rankings

The most important thing for every poker player to know is the hand rankings. Certain combinations of cards are called hand rankings. A combination of cards is stronger and more likely to give you victory if it is more difficult to get it in your hand.

Rankings of poker hands, from greatest to worst.

Royal flush: Five cards from 10 to Ace in a row of the same suit.

Five cards in a row of the same suit, regardless of value, are a straight flush. If more than one person has this rating, the one with more value cards is deemed to have the better hand.

The identical card in all four suits is known as four of a kind. The highest card among the others on the table or in your hand completes the five-card hand.

Full House: A combination of two cards with identical values and three distinct suits, all of the same card.

Five cards from the same suit, any sequence, are a flush. If more than one player gets this hand rating, the winner is the flush with the highest value card.

Straight: Five cards dealt in a row, regardless of suit. If more than one player has the same hand rating, the victor is determined by the highest ranking card in the hand.

Three of a kind: Two more cards and three equal-valued cards from the same suit. If more than one person gets this combination, the winner is determined by the highest card of the three.

Two pairs:
Two distinct sets of two cards with the same rank.
Pair: A pair of identical cards in various suits. The three best cards on hand make up the remaining portion of the hand.
High card: Your “best hand” is the card that ranks highest in the deck.
