Rankings of Poker Hands, from Most Excellent to Weakest

A hand poker consists of 5 cards that belong to one of several types. To begin constructing winning poker hands, you must first understand the ideal poker hand rank. From top to lowest, this is the complete list of poker hands.

1) ROYAL FLUSH

Example: 10♠ J♠ Q♠ K♠ A♠

The royal flush is the most delicate possible hand in poker and ranks first in the rankings. It made five identical cards, numbered 10 through ace, in the same suit.

2) FLUSH STRAIGHT

Example: Q♥ J♥ 10♥ 9♥ 8♥

Those five cards in the same suit with consecutive ranks that aren’t a royal flush are called a straight flush. It can only defeat by a royal flush or the other straight flush with more excellent cards.

3) THREE OF A KIND

Example: 2♦ 2♠ 2♣ K♠ 6♥

Three of a Kind one ‘kicker’ card and four-hand cards with the same rank. If all players have the same four of a kind, the highest fifth side card (‘kicker’) wins in communal card games. If all players have the same four of a kind, the strongest fifth side card (‘kicker’) wins in combined card games.

4) FULL HOUSE

Example: 3♣ 3♠ 3♦ 6♣ 6♥

Three identical cards and two identical cards are required. If there is a tie, the pot won by the player who has the highest three similar cards. The most excellent value of the two matching cards wins in communal card games when participants have the same three matching cards.

5) FLUSH

Example: K♣ 10♣ 7♣ 6♣ 4♣

In any sequence, five cards from the same bag. When two players have flushes, the flush with the highest value card is the winning poker hand.

6) STRAIGHT

Example: 7♣ 6♠ 5♠ 4♥ 3♥

Five cards with consecutive number values and several suits are Straight. An ace may generally be high (above a king) or low (below a 2) in the same hand, but not both.

7) THREE OF A KIND

Example: 2♦ 2♠ 2♣ K♠ 6♥

Three identical cards and two unconnected side cards. Three of a type with the highest rating win. The highest side card, and if required, the second-highest side card, wins in community card games if participants have the same three of a kind.

8) TWO PAIRS

Example: J♥ J♣ 4♣ 4♠ 9♥

Two cards of the same rank, two cards of a different level, and one side card dealt. The highest-scoring duo wins. When both participants had the highest Pair, the highest secondary team won. If both gamers have two equal pairs, the person who has the higher value side card wins.

9) PAIR

Example: 4♥ 4♠ K♠ 10♦ 5♠

A couple of cards of the same rank in different suits is Pair. The three highest-ranking cards make up approximately the cards in hand.

10) HIGH CARD

Example: K♥ J♥ 8♣ 7♦ 4♠

The hand with the lowest rating is the High card. The ‘winning hand’ is the top card in your table.
