I can never remember what the best hands are when I play Poker, so here is the list I refer to, along with the explanations of each hand.
The highest straight flush, five cards in sequence with all five cards of the same suit and a straight from 10, J, Q, K, A
Any straight with all five cards of the same suit
Four of a Kind
Four cards of the same rank
Any three cards of one rank plus any two cards of another rank
Five cards of the same suit
Five consecutive ranking cards
Three of a Kind
Three cards of the same rank
Two cards of one rank plus two cards of another rank
Two cards of the same rank
Highest ranking cards with no pair
I have a small laminated copy I keep with my cards and chips that I take with me to Poker Nights.
