Poker is a game, where skills play a vital role. A player should have a proper amount of knowledge while investing any of his/her moves on the felt. And to move the table continuously, players need to score Poker hand rankings. This hand ranking decides who will lift the pot money & will be declared a winner.   

From all the ten hand rankings, today we’ll discuss one pair of Poker hand rankings. To make one pair, a player just needs two cards of the same rank. A pair of two similar rank cards and three different cards form a perfect one-pair Poker hand ranking. 

But before diving too in the one pair, let's first understand all the hand ranking of Poker. 

Poker Hand Rankings

  • Royal Flush- It is the highest hand ranking of Poker which consists of Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10 of the same suits.
  • Straight Flush- It is the second highest hand ranking in the game of Poker which consists of five consecutive numerical number cards of the same suit.

  • Flush- The player has 5 cards with the same suit in the hand in the flush. 
  • Straight- When the player has 5 cards in a straight numerical order in the hand.
  • Three of a kind- Here, the player has three cards of the same rank.
  • Two Pair- In this, the player has two pairs of the same rank in hand. 
  • One Pair- The player has two cards of the same rank in one pair.

One Pair Poker Hand Ranking

Making a one-pair hand in Poker is very simple. While the gameplay, in each round, there are higher chances for any player to make a one-pair Poker hand. After the high card, one pair is the least winning hand in Poker. That’s why the probability of getting a one-pair hand is much higher than the other hand rankings in Poker.

Poker professionals always suggest, trying to make one pair of high-rank cards. This can be more understandable by an example- 

Example:- Suppose in the game, the first player gets: a King of Spades, A King of Diamonds, a 9 of Hearts, a Jack of Clubs, and a 6 of Hearts. 

And the second player gets an Ace of Clubs, an Ace of Hearts, a Queen of Clubs, a 7 of Spades, and a 4 of Diamonds. 

So here, the second player, who holds two aces, will be declared the winner. As the rank of his card is higher than the first one.
