Poker Hand Rankings

No matter what poker game you are playing, when it comes time to see who won, the hands are always ranked the same.  Here is the universally accepted Poker hand rankings list, from highest to lowest.

ROYAL FLUSH
This is the highest possible ranked hand. To achieve this hand you need an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10 of the same suit.  In other words, it's the best possible Straight Flush.
Example: A K Q J 10

STRAIGHT FLUSH
Five cards of the same suit in sequence.
Example: 8 7 6 5 4

FOUR OF A KIND
Four cards of the same value. Also known as "quads."
Example: K K K K 6

FULL HOUSE
Three cards of one value and two cards of another value. If more than one player has a full house, the full house with the highest ranking three of a kind wins.
Example: Q Q Q 5 5

FLUSH
Five cards of the same suit. If there is more than one flush, the hand with the highest card(s) wins.
Example: Q 10 9 4 3

STRAIGHT
Five cards of any suit in sequence. The ace can be either high or low and the higher straight wins the tie.
Example: J 10 9 8 7

THREE OF A KIND
Three cards of the same value. Also known as "trips."
Example: 7 7 7 J 4

TWO PAIR
Two sets of pairs. If two players have two pair, the hand with the highest pair wins. If they have the same high pair, whoever has the second highest pair wins. If they have the same two pair, whoever has the highest fifth card, also known as a "kicker," wins.
Example: Q Q 3 3 9

PAIR
Two cards of the same value. If two players have the same pair, the highest outside card(s) wins.
Example: J J 7 9 2

HIGH CARD
The hand holding the highest card(s) wins in the event there is a complete absence of the above hands.
Example: K Q 9 5 4
