Poker HandsWhen playing poker, sometimes the most annoying part of the game is figuring out which hand outranks another at the poker table Online Gambling Poker has placed the ranking of poker hands in a simplified layout that is suitable for printing so that you are never left wondering who is the winner of any poker hand at the table. Also you would find included an illustrated example of each hand. The list below is in order from strongest to weakest.
It is a Five card sequence from 10 to the Ace in the same suit (10,J,Q,K,A). The best one.
It is any five card sequence in the same suit. (eg. 8,9,10,J,Q and A, 2,3,4,5 of same suit). All the same suit cards are consecutive. Ranking between straights is calculated by the value of the high end of the straight.
Four of a Kind:
Here all four cards of the same index (eg. J,J,J,J).
Three of a kind combined with a pair (eg. A,A,A,5,5). Ties on a full house are broken by the three of a kind, as you cannot have two equal sets of three of a kind in any single deck.
Any five cards of the same suit, but not in sequence form a Flush. Don't be lulled into thinking that all five cards are the same color. The high card establishes the winner if two or more people have a flush.
Five cards in sequence, though not in the same suit.The higher straight wins in case two or more people have a straight. In case of straights that tie, the pot goes split.
Three of a Kind:
It means three cards of the same value. The highest set of three cards wins.
Two detached pairs (eg. 4,4,Q,Q). As usual the pair with the higher value is used to determine the winner of a tie.
A single pair of two equal value cards constitutes a pair.
If no player has any of the above winning hands, the tie is determined by the highest value card in the hand. If the highest cards are a tie, in that case the tie is broken by the second highest card. Suits are never used to break ties.
