HAND RANKINGS

We offer many types of varities of poker games

Hold’em, Omaha, Seven Card Stud and Five Card Draw all use the traditional ‘high’ poker rankings.

Omaha hi/lo, Razz, Stud hi/lo all use the ‘Ace to Five’ low hand rankings for low hands.
Badugi uses a special ranking of hands that is unique to that game.

Traditional High Poker Hand Ranks

Royal Flush

A Royal Flush is a straight Flush with a Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace - a once in a lifetime hand.

Straight Flush

Mix a straight and a flush and you get a straight flush - 5 consecutive cards of the same suit - One hell of a poker hand.

Four of a Kind (commonly referred to as Quads)

Four cards all of the same number but different suits (obviously!). The higher the card, the better the four of a kind.

Full House (commonly referred to as a Full Boat)

Three of a kind and a pair in the one hand.

Flush

That's 5 cards of the same suit. Any cards will do, they don't have to be in order but the best Flush has the highest card in it.

Straight

A straight is 5 cards of consecutive numbers. The suit doesn't matter and an Ace can be high or low. The higher the highest card, the better the straight.

3 of a Kind

Three cards of the same number. Three 7's, Three Jacks - you get the idea!

Two Pair

2 cards of the same rank and then another two cards of a different rank - therefore 2 separate pairs.

Pair

The next best hand is a pair, two cards of the same number.

High Card

The lowest hand in poker where the 5 cards do not make any of the above hands. When up against another High Card Hand, the hand with the highest card wins.
