Moving up then, beating all of these hands is Three of Kind, a Prial. This one, three 4’s. Three 4’s, maybe with a 4 and a 6, because you haven’t got anything else with it to match it up with. Three 4’s would beat all of these hands below, but of course, if you get a higher matching three, three
9’s will beat three 4’s. Moving up through the hands, you don’t see many of these really. A Straight.
A Straight is when you get five consecutive cards. Five consecutive cards in ascending order.
Of course you can use the Ace to be high or low. This example here; 9, 10, Jack, Queen and King. There’s your Straight. Five cards together. Maybe you could have a Straight; 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 of course wouldn’t beat this Straight here. It’s a five card winning hand there. We’re using our maximum number of cards you can use to win the game of Poker is five cards. We’re use all five here. The lowest ranking five card hand is the
Straight and there it is, because they’re all different suits if you notice. It doesn’t matter what suit they are to get a Straight. You’ve got five different suits, five cards in ascending order and theres your Straight. Next one up, a very nice hand to get, this one, is the Flush. What do we notice about the Flush here? They’re all Diamonds. You’ve got five Diamonds out of the seven cards available to you. That’s called a Flush. The highest card here is the King, so
we’d call this a King Flush. So you’ve got five cards of the same suit. The highest card signifies how strong the hand is. A King Flush, of course, would beat maybe a 10 Flush where you had five diamonds and the highest card was a 10. Again, any Flush beats all of the hands we’ve already mentioned.
