Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Which suit is ranked the highest?

    Suits do not value while comparing hand rankings in poker. This misconception comes in from other card games. To simplify, if your opponent player has the same hand as yours but of different suit, do not worry. The amount in the pot will be divided between both of you.

  2. Which is the better hand – Straight or Flush?

    If you are new to poker, you may get confused over this. Always remember, any Flush (five cards of same suit) beats the Straight (five cards in a sequence) in Texas Holdem poker. However, someone making a Straight Flush (five cards of the same suit in sequence) will win over both the hands.

  3. Two players form a Straight hand each. Who wins?

    Straights in poker are described by their highest like “Ten-high straight” or “Straight to Ten” for 10♥ 9♦ 8♠ 7♣ 6♥. Hence the player forming Straight with a higher card wins the game.

    Example: 6♠ 5♠ 4♦ 3♦ 2♠ wins over 5♠ 4♦ 3♦ 2♠ A♥.

  4. What if two players have same pairs?

    Simply, the pot money will get split between the two players if they have same pair hands unless some forms other higher hands like “Three of a Kind”, Straight or Full House.

  5. Two players form a Full House each. Who wins?

    The player who has the higher-ranking 3 cards wins the game in this case.

    Example: 9♥ 9♦ 9♣ Q♦ Q♣ wins over 3♦ 3♠ 3♣ A♦ A♠.

    If both the players have same three cards (trips), one having the higher pair will win.

    Example: 8♦ 8♣ 8♥ K♠ K♥ wins over 8♦ 8♠ 8♣ J♦ J♠.

  6. What if nobody make any combination of cards in the game?

    In such a scenario, the player having highest ranking card wins the pot.

    Example: A♥ 10♦ 8♣ 4♠ 2♦ wins over K♣ J♥ 8♣ 4♠ 2♦.

    If the highest ranking card of the players matches, then the next higher ranking cards are compared and so till the difference in found.

    Example: A♥ Q♣ 9♦ 4♠ 3♦ wins over A♠ J♥ 10♦ 4♠ 3♦.

  7. What is kicker in poker hands?

    Any side card in poker hands is termed as kicker.

    Example: In the “Four of a Kind” 7♣ 7♠ 7♦ 7♥ K♣, the kicker is K♣.

    Although kicker is a side card, it becomes significant in determining the winner in case of same hand.

    Example: If two players have the same pair hand: 9♥ 9♦ K♣8♣3♠ and 9♦ 9♣ Q♣5♥4♠, the first player will win the pot because of higher kicker K♣ against Q♣.
