Poker Hand Descriptions:

Five of a Kind

A five of a kind is the highest possible hand. It is only possible when using wild cards, however. If more than one player has five of a kind, the hand with the higher card wins (Five Aces beats five Kings, which beat five Queens, and so on).

 

Straight Flush

Five cards of the same suit in sequence, such as 98765 of hearts. They are ranked by the top card, and therefore AKQJT is the Bandarq best straight flush, also called a royal flush. The ace can play low to make 5432A, the lowest possible straight flush.

 

Four of a Kind

Four of a kind is simply four cards of the same rank. If there are two or more hands that qualify, the hand with the higher-rank four of a kind wins. If, in some bizarre game with many wild cards, there are two four of a kinds with the same rank, then the one with the high card outside the four of the kind wins. General Rule: When hands tie on the rank of a pair, three of a kind, etc., the cards outside break ties, as in the rules for High Card.

 

Full House

A full house is a three of a kind and a pair, such as Q-Q-Q-7-7. Ties are broken first by the three of a kind, then pair. So K-K-K-2-2 beats Q-Q-Q-A-A, which beats Q-Q-Q-J-J. (the three of a kinds can only be similar if wild cards are used.)

 

Flush

A flush is a …
