Poker Hands Ranking

Ok the first thing I want to say about poker hands ranking is "yes a flush beats a straight!" That seems to be the biggest "oh really?" moment that most players have when they want to find out which hands beat which. So below from the strongest hand in no limit holdem to the weakest hand I'm going to take you through the poker hands ranking.

1. Royal Flush

The highest possible hand in holdem is a Royal Flush. A Royal Flush includes the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten of the same suit.

2. Straight Flush

Five sequential cards of the same suit.

3. Four of a Kind

Four cards of the same rank.

4. Full House

Three cards of the same rank, with a pair of another rank.

5. Flush

Five cards of the same suit.

6. Straight

Five sequential cards of different suits.

7. Three of a Kind

Three cards of the same rank.

8. Two Pair

Two cards of one rank, two cards of another rank and a kicker of a third rank.

9. One Pair

Two cards of the same rank, and three unrelated cards.

10. No Pair, High Card

Poker hands with no pair or any of the other ranking values listed above. When comparing no pair hands, the highest card determines the winner, using each card in order if necessary, so AKQJ3 defeats AKQ94.
