## Understanding Three of a Kind

Three of a kind consists of three cards of the same rank and two cards with different ones. This is the second highest hand after the straight hand. The possibility of having the three of a kind is not as challenging as getting the other hand rankings which are above the rank of the Flush. As Three of a Kind holds the seventh rank in the series of hand rankings, it’s easy to achieve it.

You can make a Three of a Kind in two different ways. First is the situation where you may get two cards with the same rank as your hole cards and one on the board. The other is, you may have only one card as your hole one and could find two cards of similar ranks on the board.

While playing the game, if two players make Three of a kind, then the value of their card rankings will be taken into consideration for declaring the winner. The one who has the highest card value of his/her three cards will be a winner. Let's understand this with an example-

Suppose two players were playing Poker at the table.

A have King of Spade, King of Club, King of Diamond, 7 of Club, and a Jack of Heart.

B has 5 of the Club, 5 Diamonds, 5 of Heart, Q of Spade, and an Ace of Spade.

Now here, A holds the highest value of cards i.e. K as compared to B. As Kings consist of higher value rather than 5. In this A will be a winner.
