A royal flush is made up of the letters A, K, Q, J, and 10 of the same suit.
Straight Flush: A sequence of five cards in which all of the cards are of the same suit.
four cards with the same rank, but not necessarily in the same suit, are known as a four of a kind.
A full house consists of three of a type and a matching pair.
A flush is defined as any five cards of the same suit.
Hands that are made up of consecutive ranks, such as 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, are referred to as Straights. When an Ace is required to complete a straight in this game, it is counted as one.
Three of a kind refers to three cards that are the same rank.
Two-pair: There are two sets of cards that match.
A Pair is a poker hand that is made up of two cards of the same rank, such as the numbers 8, 8, 4, and 3 in the example above. It is still possible to defeat a high card with a pair even if the pair in issue is of lesser rank than the high card. Consequently, even if you have a pair of twos, they will beat a high card.
High Card: If no other player has a hand from the other hands on this list, the person with the highest card wins the game. The top cards can be arranged in any order starting with Jack, Queen, King, and Ace and progressing upwards. Consider the following example: a hand consisting of the numbers 8 and 4, 3 and 2, beats a hand consisting of the numbers Queen, 8, 4, 5 and 2, since the King always beats the Queen. Whenever two players have the same high card, the one who has the second-highest card wins the game.
In this game, all of the suits have the same value, which means that hearts have the same worth as clubs or spades.
Cards, on the other hand, have distinct ranks, which are listed below in descending order of value: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. When two players have Four of a Kind made up of Kings, the former is more valued than when two players have Four of a Kind made up of 7s, and the former would win if the game came down to those two players.
