Hand Ranking

Share

In poker, players construct hands of five cards according to predetermined rules, which vary according to which variant of poker is being played. These hands are compared using a hand ranking system that is standard across all variants of poker, the player with the highest-ranking hand winning that particular deal in most variants of poker.

 The ranking of a particular hand is increased by including multiple cards of the same card rank, by all five cards being from the same suit, or by all five cards being of consecutive rank. The relative ranking of the various hand categories is based on the probability of being randomly dealt such a hand from a well-shuffled deck.

The list of poker hands from highest to lowest is:

 

 

 

Royal Flush

Φλος ΡουαγιάλΦλος ΡουαγιάλΦλος ΡουαγιάλΦλος ΡουαγιάλΦλος Ρουαγιάλ

The five highest cards, the 10 through the Ace, all five of the same suit. A royal flush is actually an ace-high straight flush. Two people with royal flushes would tie.

  

    

 

Straight Flush

Στρέιτ ΦλοςΣτρέιτ ΦλοςΣτρέιτ ΦλοςΣτρέιτ ΦλοςΣτρέιτ Φλος

A straight flush is a hand that contains five cards in sequence, all of the same suit. Basically is a hand that meets the requirement of both a straight and a flush. Two such hands are compared by their card that is ranked highest.

  

 

 

Four of a Kind

καρέ πόκακαρέ πόκακαρέ πόκακαρέ πόκαdeck top

Also known as “Quads”. Is a hand that contains all four cards of one rank and any other (unmatched) card. Quads with higher ranking cards defeat lower ranking ones.

  

 

 

Full House

φουλ πόκαφουλ πόκαφουλ πόκαφουλ πόκαφουλ πόκα

Also known as a “full boat”. Is a hand that contains three matching cards of one rank and two matching cards of another rank. Between two full houses, the one with the higher ranking three cards wins. If two hands have the same three cards (possible in wild card and community card games), the hand with the higher pair wins.

  

 

 

Flush

χρώμα πόκαχρώμα πόκαχρώμα πόκαχρώμα πόκαχρώμα πόκα

A flush is a hand where all five cards are of the same suit, but not in sequence. Two flushes are compared as if they were high card hands; the highest ranking card of each is compared to determine the winner. If both hands have the same highest card, then the second-highest ranking card is compared, and so on until a difference is found. If the two flushes contain the same five ranks of cards, they are tied and split the pot.

  

 

 

Straight

κεντα ποκακεντα ποκακεντα ποκακεντα ποκακεντα ποκα

A straight is a hand that contains five cards of sequential rank in at least two different suits. Two straights are ranked by comparing the highest card of each. Two straights with the same high card are of equal value.

  

 

  

Three of a Kind

τριαδα ποκατριαδα ποκατριαδα ποκαdeck topdeck top

Also called “trips” or “a set”. Is a hand that contains three cards of the same rank, plus two cards which are not of this rank nor the same as each other. Higher-valued three of a kind defeat lower-valued three of a kind. If two hands contain three of a kind of the same value(wild cards or community cards games), the kickers are compared to break the tie.

  

 

 

Two Pair

2 ζευγαρια ποκα2 ζευγαρια ποκα2 ζευγαρια ποκα2 ζευγαρια ποκαdeck top

A hand that contains two cards of the same rank, plus two cards of another rank (that match each other but not the first pair), plus any card not of either rank, is called two pair. To rank two hands both containing two pair, the higher ranking pair of each is first compared, and the higher pair wins. If both hands have the same top pair, then the second pair of each is compared. If both hands have the same two pairs, the kicker determines the winner.

  

 

 

One Pair

1 ζευγαρι ποκα1 ζευγαρι ποκαdeck topdeck topdeck top

One pair is a hand that contains two cards of one rank, plus three cards which are not of this rank nor the same as each other. Higher ranking pairs defeat lower ranking pairs; if two hands have the same pair, the non-paired cards (the kickers) are compared in descending order to determine the winner.

  

 

 

High Card

φύλλο πόκαφύλλο πόκαφύλλο πόκαφύλλο πόκαφύλλο πόκα

A high-card or no-pair hand is a hand made of any five cards not meeting any of the above requirements. Essentially, no hand is made, and the only thing of any potential meaning in the player's hand is their highest card. Nevertheless, they sometimes win a pot if the other players fold or even at a showdown.

 

One last hand of poker is 5 of a kind, meaning 5 cards of the same rank. This hand is possible only while playing poker with wild cards (see glossary), for there are normally only 4 of each value in each deck of cards. At any rate, this hand beats everything.
