Texas Hold'em - Hand Ranking

The winner of each poker hand is the player who has the strongest combination of cards, using any combination of "pocket" cards and "community" cards. The combinations are listed here from strongest to weakest hand.

Before you hit the online poker tables, you'll need to familiarise yourself with the basic hand rankings. Here are the 10 hands every player should know before joining the action.

Royal Flush

The highest possible Straight Flush – 10,J,K,Q,A of the same suit.

Straight Flush

Five cards in sequence, of the same suit. In the event of a tie, the highest rank at the top of the sequence wins.

Four of a Kind

Four cards of the same rank, and one side card or ‘kicker'. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest side card (‘kicker') wins.

Full House

Three cards of the same rank, and two cards of a different, matching rank. In the event of a tie, the highest three matching cards wins.

Flush

Five cards of the same suit, not in sequence. In the event of a tie, the player holding the highest ranked card wins.

 

Straight

Five non-suited cards in sequence. In the event of a tie, the highest ranking card at the top of the sequence wins.

Three of a Kind

Three cards of the same rank, and two unrelated side cards. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest, and if necessary, second-highest side card (‘kicker') wins.

Two Pair

Two cards of matching rank, two cards of different matching rank, and one kicker. If both players have an identical Two Pair, the highest kicker wins.

Pair

Two cards of matching rank, and three unrelated side cards. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest, and if necessary, second or third-highest side card wins.

High Card

Any hand that does not qualify under the categories listed. In the event of a tie, the highest card wins, such as ‘king-high'.
