The Four Highest Poker Room Hands

Here are the four highest hands played in poker rooms.

A straight flush in poker is made up of five cards in order, all belonging to the same suit. An example of this would be 98765 of spades. The rank of a flush is always determined by the top card.

This means that the previous example would beat a 76543 flush. A royal flush is the highest possible flush. This hand is made up of AKQJT. The ace can also be used in the lowest possible straight flush, 5432A for example.

Four of a kind, is four cards of the same rank along with another card called the “kicker”. An example would be 55553. Ranking is always determined by the quads first, so a 66664 hand beats out the previous example.

A full house is made up of three cards of the same rank along with two other cards. AN example would be 55533. These hands are ranked by the triple cards first and then by the pair. A 66622 hand would then beat the previous example, but a 77799 beats a 77766.

A flush in poker rooms is any five cards belonging to the same suit. An example would be K8567 of diamonds. Rank is determined with the top card and then the next cards in the hand.
