What is Poker?

Now, as you all know that we are discussing poker hands in this article, so you have the question as well what is a poker hand? So, let us discuss it as well.

What is a poker hand?

As I told you in What is poker? that Poker is a card game in which sets of cards are distributed so in poker hands as well 5 cards are distributed to each of the players and some rankings are decided according to the 5 cards which are distributed to the players.

Each set is compared with another set of different players. So, if one of the players has a good ranking card then he is the winner of the game.

On the poker hand, some different ranking categories are decided so, let us discuss it as well.

Let us discuss all of these in detail.

Five of a kind:

From the name of Five of a kind ranking factor, it stated that all the five cards are the same. But eventually, it is not possible. Because in the deck of playing cards there are only 52 cards and each contains only 4 cards.

Let cards of 2 are 4 in a single deck. Then how can someone get five same cards? So, here we can use wild cards and this wild card is the joker.

Let suppose if you get 4 cards of Queen and 1 card of joker then joker turns into the Queen. That’s how it works. But getting this type of set of cards is very rare. So, that’s the reason Five of a kind is ranked in 1st position.

The higher ranking cards are ranked as a top. For example, if you get 4 cards of 10 and 1 card of the joker, and another one is getting 4 cards of 8 and 1 card of the joker. You will rank as a 1st because 10 is bigger than 8.

I hope you will understand what I write above. If not you can comment below.

Straight Flush:

In a straight flush rule, the five cards are in sequential order. The sequential order is 1,2,3,4 and 5. Getting this type of set of the card is also a very lucky factor. But if you have luck you can surely get these types of cards.

Let suppose if you are getting 5 cards of the ace in sequential order like 4,5,6,7 and 8 and someone is getting 5 cards of heart in sequential order like 6,7,8,9 and 10 then you will lose the game. Because he or she is getting bigger numbers than you.

The straight flush is ranked top of the four of a kind and under of Five of a kind.

Four of a Kind:

Four of a kind is also defined as squads. The Four of a kind is a type of hand which contains four similar types of cards and one may be another card.

Let us understand this with an example. Suppose if you are getting 4 similar cards like 4,4,4 and 4 & 1 any other card and someone is getting 4 similar cards like 10,10,10 and 10 and 1 any other card. Then you will lose the game because 10 is greater than the 4.

The Four of a Kind is ranked top of the Full House and under of Straight Flush.

Full House:

In a full house in the set of 5 three cards are similar and the other two cards are different.

Let us understand this also with an example. Suppose if you are getting 3 similar cards like 5,5 and 5 and the other 2 are different and someone else is getting 3 similar cards of 2,2 and 2 and the other 2 are different then in this scenario you will win. Because 5 is greater than 2.

Flush:

In the flush, all of the five cards are of the same case. This means all the five cards may be of ace or heart or clubs or diamond.

Let us learn this from the example. Suppose if you are getting all five cards of the same suit of the joker, 10,7, and 4 and someone is getting all five cards of the heart of the queen,10,3,7, and joker then you will lose the game. Because here also you do not have higher cards than another player.

Straight:

The straight is also like a straight flush but the only difference in straight is the five cards are in sequence but they are not of the same case or the same suit. Here also higher the card number higher the ranking rule is applied.

Let suppose if you are getting 5 cards of the ace in sequential order like 4,5,6,7 and 8 but all cards are of a different suit and someone is getting 5 cards of heart in sequential order like 6,7,8,9 and 10 but all cards are of the different suit then you will lose the game. Because he or she is getting bigger numbers than you.

Three of a kind:

Three of a kind is also called a triple. From the name, you understand that the three cards among the 5 cards are similar. For example, 3 cards of 4,4, and 4, and the other 2 cards are different. And obviously, they are of a different suit.

Suppose if you are getting 3 cards of the king and other 2 cards are different and the other one is getting 3 cards of the queen and other 2 cards are different then you will win the game because the king is always greater than the queen.

Two Pair:

Two pairs is a hand where the pair of two-two cards are simple. For example, among the five cards, the two cards are of 4 and other 2 cards are of the king and 1 card is different.

Let understand this with an example, if you are getting 2 cards of ace, 2 cards or 4 and 1 card is different it may be 6 and someone is getting 2 cards of the queen, 2 cards or 10 and 1 card is different it may be 3 then you will win the game because you have one higher card which is ace.

One pair:

From the heading, you will understand the rule of this hand. In one pair among 5 cards, the two cards are similar. For example, the two cards are of the king and the other 3 cards are different.

Let us understand this as well with you and another player example. If you are getting two similar cards of Queen and the other three are different and someone else is getting two similar cards of Ace and the other three are different then you will lose the game because you do not have higher cards from the competitor.

High card:

A high card is nothing. On this hand, you will get all five random cards. No sequence, no suit, and nothing, it is just a random card.

Suppose if you are getting 5 different cards are of the king, 6, 8,10, and queen (All of are of different suit) and someone is getting 5 different cards are of 10, 9, 8,3 and ace (All of are of different suit) then in this game also you will lose the game. Because you do not have higher cards than your opponent.
