Royal Flush A royal flush is a straight flush that has a high card value of Ace (Ex: 10, J, Q, K, A). This is the highest hand in poker. Straight Flush A five-card sequence of the same suit (Ex: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).
Four of a Kind All four cards of the same rank (Ex: Q, Q, Q, Q). Four cards of the same value. AKA: Quads
Full House Three of a kind combined with a pair (Ex: 3, 3, 3, K, K). Ties in a full house are broken by the three of a kind. If both hands share the same three of a kind, ties are broken by the higher pair.
Flush Any five cards of the same suit, but not in sequence. If two people both have a flush in the same suit, the person with the highest card is the winner.
Straight Five cards in sequence, comprised of mixed suits. Note: there is no wrap around (it doesn't work if you have K, A, 2, 3, 4). The straight that has the highest card is the winner. AKA: Run or Sequence
Three of a Kind Three cards with the same value are considered three of a kind (Ex: 8, 8, 8). The three of a kind of the highest value is the winner. AKA: Trips, Triplets, or Trio
Two Pair Two sets of equal value cards (Ex: 7, 7, Q, Q). The pair with the higher value is used to determine the winner of a tie.
One Pair Two cards of equal rank (Ex: J, J).
High Card If the hand has no other combination (see above), its worth is determined by the highest value card. If two players have the same high card, the tie is broken by the second highest card.
