Royal Flush In Poker

We are all aware the game of luck is poker, but do you know what really comes down to winning the gamble - it has the best possible poker hand ranking. It is through these variations, like straight flush, that you are going to beat all your poker opponents. The royal flush is the highest hand in poker. You need an Ace, a King, a Queen, a Jack, and a 10. All the cards which make up the hand must be of the same suit.

The order (from the highest to the lowest) of poker rankings is Four-of-a-Kind, Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Full House, Flush, Straight, Three-of-a-Kind, Two Pair, One Pair, High Card.

Traditional High Poker Hand Ranks:

  • Straight Flush: Five numerically ordered cards, all of similar suits. In the event of a tie: the topmost rank at the top of the sequence wins. The best straight flush possible is known as a royal flush, consisting of the ace, king, queen, jack, and ten suits. This hand is an unsurpassable hand. You have got a straight if all five cards that make up your poker hand are consecutive. If the cards are of the same suit, you have a straight flush which is a much stronger hand than the straight one.
  • Four of a Kind: Four same-ranked cards and one side card or kicker. The highest fifth side card ("kicker") wins in community card games where players have the same four of a kind.
  • Full House: Three cards of the same rank, and two other, similar rank cards. In case of a tie: The top three matching cards win the pot. The higher value of the two matching cards wins in community card games where the players have the same three matching cards.
  • Flush: Five cards in one suit. In case of a tie: The player who holds the highest ranked card wins. The second-highest, third-highest, fourth-highest, and fifth-highest cards can be used to break the tie when necessary. If all five cards are equal ranks, then the pot is broken. The suit itself will never be used for breaking a tie in poker.
