Poker hierarchy and hands

The seniority of hands (combinations) in Poker always depends on a particular game. However, there are general types of Poker hierarchy ofPoker winning hands that are meaningful. One can learn all about them only practicing the game. It can be done at home with friends, but to master the game, it is better to register at a good Poker site and train a lot there.

Poker hands hierarchy types

“High hierarchy” is the classic definition of the Poker hierarchy games, for instance, Texas Hold’em hands, where Royal Flush is the coolest set of cards that beats any other one. Games that also use these rules include Stud, Draw, and Omaha. Here, Royal Flush (A, K, Q, J, 10 with a similar suit) is a real gem that every player is waiting for.

A kicker (the card that will be the best) is the smallest hand in Hold’em hierarchy of Poker.

The rule for determining the hierarchy when players get the same hands is as follows: the higher hands win. If the cards coincide in rank, the win is determined by the biggest kicker.

The low hierarchy turns the standard seniority of the high Poker rules for hierarchy upside down, i.e. here, the combination that is the smallest will be the better one. This one is used in Lowball, and Razz. The highest combinations are 5 cards, but without a pair and bundles, and always with a 7. There are no specific names; there are different designations for them.

Some types of this card game combine both types of hierarchies. For example, Omaha Hi/Lo uses mixed Poker hierarchy. In this game, the bank is divided in half between two combinations — the oldest in the draw from the high hierarchy and the oldest in the draw from the low hierarchy. However, in Omaha Hi / Lo, Ace is the lowest ranked card, which means that the combination of Ace-low (its second name a” Wheel”) will be the oldest along with a Flush Royal.

What card can beat another one in this game?

In classic Hold’em Poker hierarchy, Royal Flush wins everything including Full House Poker hand. In traditional Poker, there are only 10 combinations that go in a certain sequence. Below there are all hands (the order is ascending). That means: each subsequent combination beats any previous one. Now, many card gambling clubs use Poker games, where Joker is included as well.
