Explanation of Rank Advantage

In most poker formats higher ranked cards are better. I.e holding a King is usually better than holding a Seven. In “lowball” variants, the order of ranks is reversed however, so holding a Deuce is now typically better than holding a Ten.

Example of Rank used in a sentence -> When we hold two cards of identical rank we have made a pair.

How to Use Rank as Part of Your Poker Strategy 

In Hold’em and Omaha (high variants), cards with higher rank are typically better since it means our holding has more equity.
