Hand rankings remain the same no matter which game of online poker
you choose to play. And a poker hand always consists of five cards. Your objective is to make sure that the cards you hold have the highest hand rankings to maximize your chance of winning.
The following hand rankings show you all types of combinations from a flush to a straight to a pair.
A straight from a ten to an ace. All five cards must be of the same suit.
Any straight with all five cards of the same suit.
Four of a Kind
Any four cards of equal rank. Suit doesn’t matter.
Any three cards of the same rank together with any two cards of another rank.
Any five cards of the same suit. The cards don’t have to be consecutive.
Any five consecutive cards. Suit doesn’t matter.
Three of a kind
Any three cards of the same rank.
Any two cards of one rank together with another two cards of another rank.
Any two cards of the same rank.
Should no player hold any of the hands mentioned above, highest card wins
Tie hands are hands of equal value. Should two or more players be tied for the same place, the winner will be determined by the player holding the highest card. For example, a pair of Aces will beat a pair of Kings.
If both players hold the same high cards, the “Kicker”
card will determine the winner.
If the hands are exact ties, the pot will be split evenly.
