Hand Rankings:


Always determined by the best five card hand:
Royal Flush
The five highest cards, the 10 through the Ace, all five of the same suit. A royal flush is actually an ace-high straight flush. Which suit it is doesn't matter in poker. Two people with royal flushes would tie.
Straight Flush
Any five cards of the same suit in consecutive numerical order. Our example shows a nine-high straight flush.
Four of a Kind
Four cards of the same denomination. Our example shows four jacks with a three kicker.
Full House
Any three cards of the same denomination, plus any pair of a different denomination. Ties are broken first by the three of a kind, then the pair. Our example shows kings full of sixes.
Flush
Any five non-consecutive cards of the same suit. Our example shows a queen-high spade flush.
Straight
Any five consecutive cards of mixed suits. Ace can be high or low. Our example shows a seven-to-jack straight.
Three of a Kind
Three cards of the same denomination. Our example displays three of a kind, jacks.
Two Pair
Any two cards of the same denomination, plus any other two cards of the same denomination. If both hands have the same high pair, the second pair wins. If both pairs tie, the high card wins. Our example shows two pair, queens and sevens.
One Pair
Any two cards of the same denomination. Our example displays a pair of kings. In a tie, the high card wins.
High Cards
If no other hand is achieved, the highest card held wins. Our example shows an ace high hand.
