Guide to Poker Hands - What is The Best Poker Hand Available?
This guide of poker hands will make you aware of which hands will beat the others. The best poker hand is a Royal Flush, which cannot be beaten right down to a hand with nothing available apart from a high card.

Poker Hands Ranking - From Royal Flush to High Card

1. Royal Flush

This is the best hand possible in poker and consists of Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 of the same suit.

2. Straight Flush

This hand consists of a straight run of cards, all of the same suit. e.g 2,3,4,5,6 of spades

3. Four of a Kind

Four cards held in the same hand all of the same number or picture card, e.g four 9's, one of each suit.

4. Full House

This hand consists of three cards of one number or picture and two cards of another number or picture. e.g three 4's and two 7's.

5. Flush

Five cards all of one suit but not a running sequence. e.g five spades, 2,4,6,9 and Ace.

6. Straight

A five card running sequence of cards of different suits. e.g 5 spades, 6 hearts, 7 diamonds, 8 clubs and 9 diamonds.

7. Three of a Kind

This hand consists of three cards of the same number or picture and two other cards. e.g three 6's.
