Your Questions About Poker Hands

James asks…

What are the rankings of poker hands?

I read that a full house was better than a straight or a flush? This doesn’t seem right to me. I don’t think a full house is that hard to get. What does Hoyle say?

admin answers:

1: Royal Flush (A,K,Q,J,10 same suit)
2: Straight Flush (five consecutive cards of same suit)
3: 4 of a kind (4 of a certain value)
4: Full House (Three of one card and 2 of another)
5: Flush (5 cards of same suit)
6: Straight (5 consecutive cards of any suit)
7: 3 of a kind (3 cards of same value)
8: 2 pair (2 of one card and 2 of another)
9: pair (2 of one card)
10: High card (none of the above)

William asks…

What to do when you get no poker hands?

I played for like 4 hours and the best hands I got was QQ and KJ after that I had nothing good. Kept getting 9-2 or 10-4. What would you do in a situation like that? Bluff a lot? I bluffed some hands and won cause of my tight image but still. My money kept going down since I didnt win much.

admin answers:

If you keep recieving poor cards for a long period of time best to minimise your bluffing, utilise your position and try to steal the pot in late position. Not much you can do with bad cards except from middle to late position try to see a cheap flop and hopefully get lucky, never know you could break someone who slow plays big pockets.

Joseph asks…

poker hands, what are the hardest ones to play for you?

What are the hardest hands or what are the hardest situations for you guys to play? I myself always oddly enough find that when i flop the nuts it is very hard to play, Not that I’m unhappy about flopping a great hand, but it is so hard to get any real action on a hand like that. How about you guys?

admin answers:

Actually, flopping the stone cold nuts is one of the toughest hands to get action on, just because when you flop a hand like that it’s tough for someone else to have a hand most times…say you have 8-8 and the flop comes down 8-5-5, it’s hard for someone to have something that they can give you action with, so definitely one of the tougher situations is having the nuts and playing it in a way where you get max value but you protect your hand from being outdrawn, if necessary

one hand that i find very difficult to play in full table situations in no-limit is A-Q, especially when facing an early position raise…at a shorthanded table, A-Q is a huge hand, but at a full table it’s very beatable and when someone opens the pot from first position and you don’t have a lot of info on this player, it becomes a really tricky spot…in these situations i like to just call and take a flop if i have the chips to do so, but even then you can get yourself in some very sticky situations post-flop

John asks…

A poker hand consists of 5 cards dealt from an ordinary deck of 52 playing cards. How many different hands?

are there consisting of four hearts and one spade?

admin answers:

As each time a heart is dealt, the number remaining is one less, so 4 hearts can be dealt 13 x 12 x 11 x 10 = 17160 ways

For each set of 4 hearts, there can be 13 spades. The total number of hands is 13 x 17160 = 223080
