Poker online hand rankings

Hand rankings are a very important part of the game's rules to memorize when playing at sites like Ultimate bet poker. Although they may seem like a lot to remember, most players are able to master hand value concepts quickly.

Hand rankings, in descending order of value, are as follows:
  • Royal Flush
  • Straight Flush
  • Four of a Kind
  • Full House
  • Flush
  • Straight
  • Three of a Kind
  • Two Pair
  • One Pair
  • High Card
All four suits are of equal value, and although game variations may affect a game's odds, tied hands are almost always determined in a similar fashion. In the case of a “tie,” a winner is always decided based on a logical set of high card value-related principles. The only exception to this rule is the very rare occurrence of two active players who both hold Royal Flushes at the end of a round, on which occasion both players are considered the winner and split the pot.

Experienced players may sometimes sound like they are speaking in code when they refer to or discuss the game itself; poker lingo is an even more important aspect of the culture of poker online than it ever was when online play was not yet a viable option. Although these terms may seem strange at first, becoming familiar with their meaning will help you develop your gaming skills and knowledge base. There are a number of resources available on the Internet to help new players decipher the abbreviated language of online poker, including many all-purpose gaming portals such as Poker.ca.
