The Poker Ladder

2006-09-10 at 14:28 (lists)

It’s here because I always forget it whenever I want to play poker.

  1. 5 of a kind: this is the highest possible hand, but is only possible when playing with wild cards.
  2. Straight Flush: a straight flush is 5 cards in order, all of the same suit.
  3. 4 of a kind: four cards of the same rank (i.e. four kings or four nines).
  4. Full House: Three of a kind and a pair, like two kings and three sevens, or two jacks and three twos.
  5. Flush: five cards of the same suit.
  6. Straight: five cards in rank order, but not of the same suit.
  7. 3 of a kind: three cards of the same rank.
  8. Two pair: a set of cards, with two of one rank, and the other two of another rank (i.e. two aces and two kings).
  9. Pair: two cards of the same rank.
  10. High Card: when the hand contains none of the above, then highest card counts.
