> Odds of Getting a Full House and Four of a Kind in Pick 'Em Poker
If not, dont worry. Once again we will help you out. Below are the winning hands from high to low:
Royal Flush: Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace of the same suit.
This is the best possible hand for a player to have in a standard poker game. It consists of the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. Note that all must be of the same suit.
Straight Flush: Straight with all five cards in the same suit and order.
This is the best natural hand. Five cards in order, such as 2-3-4-5-6 and all of the same suit.
Four of a Kind: Four cards of the same number or face value ("quads").
If there are two or more hands that qualify, the hand with the higher-rank four of a kind wins. Very rarely, if you are playing a game with a lot of wild cards, you may have two four of a kinds with the same rank. In this case you use the High Card rule.
Full House: Three cards of one number or face value and two cards of another number or face value.
The tie is broken by determining who has the highest three of a kind set. For example, Q,Q,Q,7,7 would beat J,J,J,A,A. If the tie cannot be broken by determing who has the highest three of a kind set, then the tie is broken by going to the two card pair, which would only happen if playing in a game with wild cards
Flush: Five cards of the same suit.
If there is more than one flush, the hand with the highest card(s) wins. A flush is a hand where all of the cards are the same suit, such as A-J-9-7-5, all of Diamonds
When flushes ties, follow the rules for High Card.
Straight: Five cards in sequence. Cards can be in any suit.
An Ace can be used in the highest straight (10, J, Q, K, A) and the lowest straight (A, 2, 3, 4, 5).
When two straights tie, the highest straight wins, K-Q-J-10-9 would beat 5-4-3-2-A. If two straights have the same value, AKQJT vs AKQJT, the pot is split.
Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same number or face value ("trips").
In case of a tie, the highest ranking three of a kind hand wins. In a wild card game, if both tied hands are of the same rank, then the High Card rule should be followed.
Two Pair: If two players have two pair, the hand with the highest pair wins.
Two Pair-Two distinct pairs of card and a 5th card. The highest ranking pair wins ties. If both hands have the same high pair, the second pair wins. If both hands have the same pairs, the high card wins. If they have the same high pair, whoever has the second highest pair wins. If they have the same two pair, whoever has the highest fifth card wins.
One Pair:Two cards of the same number or face value.
One like pair with three other cards. If two players have the same pair, the highest outside card(s) wins.
High Card:The hand with the highest card(s) wins.
When a hand doesn't even have a pair, then it comes down to who is holding the highest ranking card. If there is a tie for the high card then the next high card determines the pot, if that card is a tie than it continues down till the third, fourth, and fifth card. The High card is also used to break ties when the high hands both have the same type of hand (pair, flush, straight, etc)
