Poker Hands
Poker is a 5-card game. Players are given an opportunity to bet on their hands. The player with the best hand wins. Hands are rated according to the following scale:From best to worst:
Straight Flush
All 5 cards are in sequential order and the same suit (see Straight and Flush below). 
4 of a Kind
4 cards of the same rank  
Full House
3 cards of the same rank + two cards of the same rank. 
All 5 cards are of the same suit 
All 5 cards are in sequential order.Aces can either come before a 2 to start a straight or after a King to end a straight. 
3 of a Kind
3 cards of the same rank  
2 cards of the same rank + 2 cards of the same rank 
Pair (2 of a Kind)
2 cards of the same rank  
High Card
If you have no other hand, your highest card is your hand. For example: 'high card ace' or 'high card queen' 
In any hand that does not use all 5 of the player's cards, the highest leftover card is calledthe 'kicker'. The kicker is used to compare ties. In some cases the kicker may need toinclude your top two or three leftover cards (this would happen if both players had thesame kicker).
