This page is the perfect companion to my poker rules page. Both that page and this poker hands page are aimed at the poker rookie. Someone who's always wanted to take a stab at playing poker, but was too intimidated. I used to be that way myself, so I know of what I speak. On this page I'm just going to give a run down of how poker hands are ranked, and which one would win over which other one. That's about it really. Below, you'll find a list of standard poker hands, ranked from highest to lowest. Keep in mind that the best possible poker hand of that type is shown. For example, you might get a straight flush consisting of 8-7-6-5-4 all of the same suit and you'd be pretty sure of winning with it.
  1. A Straight flush consists of 5 cards in sequential order (straight), all of the same suit (flush).



  2. Four-of-a-kind means just that. Four cards of the same face value. Since no one else could have the same four cards, the fifth card doesn't really have any bearing on the hand.



  3. A Full House consists of three cards of the same face value, and two cards of another face value. If another player has a poker hand with a Full House, the rankings of the triplet and the pair are used to break the tie.



  4. A Flush consists of any 5 cards, all of the same suit. As the poker hand ranking gets lower, the face values of the cards becomes more important.



  5. A Straight consists of any 5 cards in sequential order. The higher the face values of the cards, the better the hand.



  6. Three-of-a-kind means what it says. Three cards of the same face value, and any other two non-matching cards.



  7. Two-pair consists of one pair of cards of the same face value, and another pair of cards of the same face value (though not the same face value as the other pair, or you'd have four of a kind). The unmatched card can become important in the case of a tie, so hold on to a King or an Ace as your 5th card.



  8. One-pair consists of two cards of the same face value, and three unmatched cards.



  9. No-pair means you have no pair in your poker hand. This is just 5 unmatched cards. Hopefully they're fairly high face value. Usually you can't win with this poker hand, so don't even try.



Hopefully this page has been helpful to you, in getting you on your way in the world of poker. If you haven't yet; you should visit my poker rules page for more of an explanation of how the game is played.
