The following is the ordering of hands, along with a few simple definitions.  The strongest hand wins.  This ordering is from weakest to strongest.
  • High card:  In the series of cards from 2 through Ace, the higher the card number, the higher the rank of the card.  After 10 come, in order, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace.  The Ace is the highest ranked card, the high card.
  • Pair:  Any two cards of the same rank.  For example, 2 threes, two Jacks, two Aces.
  • Two Pair:  Two sets of two cards of the same rank. For example, 2 Queens and 2 fives.
  • Three of a kind:  Also called trips.  For example, 3 sevens.
  • Straight:  Five cards in sequential rank order, in a row.  For example: 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen.   An ace may be used as either a 1 or the highest card as in: A, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace.  Please note that King, Ace, 2, 3, 4 is not a straight.
  • Flush:  Five cards of the same suit.  For example, five cards, all of Clubs.
  • Full House:  A combination of three of a kind and a pair.
  • Four of a kind:  For example, 4 Kings.
  • Straight Flush:  A straight (5 in a row) all of the same suit.

  • In some cases, the kicker card breaks a tie.  This applies when two players have the same winning pair or two pair.  The kicker card is the best high card after the pair.
