Rank of Hands

The basic knowledge of every poker player is the rank of the poker hands. For your convenience we provide you with an easy overview.

Congratulations! The highest hand possible in poker is the Royal Flush. Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace of the same suit.
The next best poker hand in poker is the Straight Flush. Five cards in hand from the same suit and in sequence.
The Four of a Kind. Four cards of the same number or face value.
Three of a Kind and a Pair makes up the Full House. If more than one player has a full house, the full house with the highest ranking three of a kind wins.
Five cards of the same suit but not in order is a Flush. If there is more than one flush, the hand with the highest card wins.
The Straight. Five cards in sequence. Suit doesn't matter. An Ace can be used in the highest straight (10, J, Q, K, A) and the lowest straight (A, 2, 3, 4, 5).
Three cards of the same number or face value is a Three of a Kind. If two players have three of a kind, the hand with the highest triple card wins.
Two pairs of 2 cards with the same number or face value is the Two Pair. If two players have two pair, the hand with the highest pair wins.
One Pair is 2 cards with the same number or face value. If two players have a pair, the hand with the highest outside card wins.
High Card. No poker combination but still you can win if you have the highest card. Ace is the highest.
