Holdem Poker Hand Rankings

With the advent of online poker, a large variety of this game has entered the stage. But basically the rules are the same. So knowing the rules accurately is the key. The Holdem Poker Hand Rankings are not in any way different from the hands in normal basic poker. Ace is having the highest value among the cards in the game. In total five cards are used by a player. In Holdem Poker Hand Rankings, it is very important to know the strength of your hand to go for the kill.

Certain patterns are there that ultimately decide the strength of your hand. The strongest one is undoubtedly the royal flush, in which you will be holding the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 from the like suit. Royal flush thus has the upper hand over all other combinations in the game. At the same time it is a very rare combination to find in the real table. The second strong combination in Holdem Poker Hand Rankings is the straight flush which is slightly different from the royal flush.

There you were having the five highest value cards, but here you just need any five consecutive cards of a same suit irrespective of their value. Then comes the four of a kind hand. As the name suggests you will be having four cards which are of same number. There is a chance that more than one player have the four of a kind hand. In that case the value of the cards decides the winner. A full house can be made by having three of same number and two of any other number.

If more than one player has the full house the same rule in four of a kind gets applied here also. Some of the other combinations in Holdem Poker Hand Rankings are the flush, straight, three of a kind, two pair and one pair. If nobody in the table holds any of the specified combinations, the one who have the card with the highest value among them will be declared the winner.
