Royal Flush -This is the most valuable hand in all of poker. A Royal Flush is composed of Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10, all of the same suit.
Straight Flush - is comprised of five cards in numerical order, all of the same suit. If there are two Straight Flushes at the table, then whichever hand's Straight Flush reaches the highest card value wins.
Four of a Kind - Four cards of the same rank, for example four kings, plus any fifth card. As always, higher ranks are better.
Full House - Three cards of the same rank, with a pair of another rank. The higher ranking three cards determine which full house beats the other.
Flush - Five cards of the same suit, regardless of their numerical rank. When comparing flushes, they are ranked from the top card on down. If two flushes have exactly the same cards, this is a tie and the hand would push.
Straight - Five sequential cards, regardless of their suits. In a tie, whoever's Straight goes to a higher ranking card wins.
Three of a Kind - Three cards of the same rank, with two unpaired cards. As always, a higher ranked three of a kind defeats a lower ranked three of a kind. In flop games it is possible for both players to have the same three of a kind, in which case the two unrelated "kicker" cards would determine the winner. If the two hands are identical, the hand is pushed.
Two Pair - Two cards of one rank, two cards of another rank and a kicker of a third rank.
One Pair - Two cards of the same rank and three random cards. A higher pair defeats a lower pair. When players have the same pair, the highest kicker cards would determine the winning hand.
High Card - The player holding the highest valued card wins, with the 2 as the lowest card and the Ace as the highest.
