Loads of people are interested in knowing more about the top poker hands. This is the subject that plagues all those players who have just begun their poker quest.

At the time of learning more about poker hands, it is ideal to have a professional player teach you about the basics, which includes the best hands one can get in the game. There are a lot of players who end up embarrassing themselves at the end of the game because they are simply unaware about the winning poker hands.

Poker HandsThere are loads of dissimilar hands that you can hit upon while playing poker. However, the hunt is still on about the best poker hands and it ends with knowing the existing hand rankings. The most excellent poker hands simply consist of the highest ranked cards and each hand could be grouped in a specific category. Such poker categories are ranked from the highest to the lowest.

The ‘Royal Flush’ undoubtedly belongs to the best poker hands. It is the best possible combination one can get in a usual five card poker game. The cards in such a combination include the 10, Jack, Queen, King as well as the Ace, and all of them have to belong to the same suit. However, with this combination the suit typically does not matter and the probability of getting this kind of a hand is enormously low. It is therefore known to be the best.

The ‘Straight Flush’ is the second best amongst all the poker hands. Any combination or a sequence of five cards from the same suit form the Straight Flush. For an example cards such as 5,6,7,8 and 9, all from hearts is a Straight Flush. If there are two or more people with Straight Flush, then the player who possesses the highest numbered card would win. The same principle applies to the other poker hands as well.

Just below the Straight Flush, comes the Four of a Kind in poker hands. Obviously, as the name suggests, it is four cards of the same value and one card of any other value. Subsequent to this is the Full House, which is three cards of the same value and the remaining two cards of the same value such as 3, 3, 3 and 2, 2. Lastly, the fifth best poker hand is the Flush. It isn’t hard to get a Flush since the player needs to get five cards of the same suit and the cards need not be in any sequence. There are other poker hands which do not hold a lot of value; however they are Straight, Three of a Kind and Two Pair.
