# POKER HANDS RANKED

start exploring

# Royal Flush

###### Sitting at the very top of the poker hierarchy, you’ll find the royal flush. The strongest poker hand of all is a type of straight flush where you have A-K-Q-J-10 – all in the same suit.

# Straight Flush

###### A straight flush is made up of five consecutive cards, all in the same suit. For example, 9-8-7-6-5 all in diamonds.

# Four-of-a-Kind

###### A four of a kind in poker is simply four cards of the same value. So if you end up with 7-7-7-7-4 in your five-card hand, congratulations, you’ve got ‘quads’!

# Full House

###### A full house poker hand is made up of a matching three of a kind together with a pair of a different value.

# Flush

###### A flush in poker consists of five cards which are all part of the same suit, but not in a consecutive order, such as A-K-8-7-3 in hearts.

# Straight

###### If you have a straight, you’ll hold five consecutive cards which are not all the same suit. For example, 8-7-6-5-4 in different suits.

# Three-of-a-Kind

###### Just like its four card counterpart, a 3 of a kind consists of three cards of the same rank – for instance, your five-card hand contains 8-8-8-5-2.

# Two Pair

###### Two pair is exactly what it says on the tin – two pairs, each being a different rank.

# One Pair

###### One pair is simply two cards of the same value, such as having two kings in your hand.

# High Card

###### High card is the lowest possible hand, made up of five cards which do not produce any of the above.
