A poker hand consists of a combination of five cards. Any combination of five cards into one of the following ten categories: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Square, Full House, Color, Straight, Three of a Kind, Two Pair, Pair, High Card. Poker hands are valued based on their rarity. More hand is rare, it is more strong.
You will find, for each category, the names (in both French and English, in addition to some accepted synonyms), a visual example representing this category, a brief definition and the probabilities (as a fraction and as a percentage) of hit each of these categories hands. You will also find how to decide a tie between two hands (or more!) In the same category.
Royal Flush (Royal Flush, Royal Flush, Royal Flush Color, Royal Suite, Royal Suite Color):
The Royal Flush is the highest poker hand. It consists of a straight (continued) to have all of the same suit (hearts, diamonds, spades, clubs). There are only 4 combinations Royal Flush. You will have one chance to hit 649,740 this hand is 0.000154%
It is impossible to beat a Royal Flush.
Straight Flush (Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Suite Color)
The Straight Flush (Straight Flush) is composed of a straight (suite), all of the same suit (hearts, diamonds, spades or clubs). A Quinte ace is also a Straight Flush, but it is called Royal Flush. There are only 40 combinations Flush (including the Royal Flush). You will have 1 chance in 64,974 of hitting the hand or 00,154%.
In case of a tie (against Straight Flush Straight Flush), just look at the highest card that makes up the fifth color. For example, a Straight Flush with as highest card, the 9 will be stronger than a straight flush with as highest card, 7)
Square (Four such, Fourofakind; Quads)
Square consists of four cards of the same value and another card (rappelezvous! A poker hand has ALWAYS 5 cards). There are 624 combinations of Square. You will have 1 chance in 4165 to hit a Square or 0.024%.
In case of a tie (vs. Square. Carré), the highest winning square (a square aces beats a king). In case of equality (square square king against king), the fifth card (the highest single card you have in your hands) is used to decide the winner (a square with an 8 king is greater than one square king with a 7). In case of a tie, the pot must be separated also.
Full House (Full; Fullhouse)
Hand Full consists of three cards of the same value (three of a kind) with two other cards of the same value (pair). There are 3744 combinations of Full House. You will have a chance 1 chance in 694 to hit that hand, or 0.144%.
In case of a tie (full hand against hand full), three of a kind (three such cards) the highest hand wins (QQQ33 exceeds JJJ99); in case of equality, we must take into account the pair accompanying brelan (QQQ33 exceeds QQQ22). In case of a tie, the pot must be separated also.
Color (Flush)
Color is composed of five cards of the same color. Warning: although the hand is called a "color", it is actually five cards of the same category (historically, card games were printed in red and black to reduce the cost in ink . Actually, the cards should be blue tiles and cards should be green clovers). There is therefore no card of the same color (red or black), but the same kind of card (hearts, diamonds, clubs or spades).
In most poker variants (including Hold'Em), the colors all have the same force (the pic is worth as much as the heart, which is as good as clover, which is worth as much as the tile). However, in some less popular variants, colors have a different force (from highest to lowest: spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs).
There are 5108 color combinations. You will have a chance to hit 509 on the hand, or 0.198%.
In case of a tie (vs. color. Color), just look at the numerical value of the higher up the color map. A stitching color AT932 will be stronger than color KT932. In case of a tie, we look at the numerical value of the second highest card (AJ932 is stronger than AT932). If there is still a tie, we go to the third card, then the 4th and 5th ..
Quinte (Suite; Straight)
The Straight consists of five cards in consecutive order. The ace can be used to precede a "2", or to follow a king. A Quinte QKA23 however, is not invalid (as can be seen for both "1" and "as").
There are 10200 combinations of Quinte. You will have 1 chance in 255 to hit this combination is 0.394%.
In case of a tie (against fifth straight), just look at the numerical value of the highest fifth card the component. A straight 89TJQ is stronger than straight 56789.
Kind (Threeofakind, Trips, Set)
The Kind consists of three cards of the same value, and two unpaired cards.
There are 54912 combinations Kind. You will have 1 chance in 47 to hit this combination is 2.112%.
In case of equality (brelan against brelan), just look at the numerical value of the highest unpaired cards. A 999A5 brelan is stronger than brelan 999Q5. In case of a tie, just look at the second map mismatched. A 999A7 brelan is stronger than brelan 999A5.
Double pairs (Two peers Two pairs)
Two pair is composed of two pairs of a mismatched map.
There are 123,553 combinations Two Pair. You will have 1 chance in 21 to hit this combination is 4.753%.
In case of a tie (two pair against two pair), just look at the highest pairs. 7722A is stronger than 6622A. In case of a tie, just look at the second pair (lowest). 7733A is stronger than 7722A. In case of a tie, then look at the mismatched card. Thus, 7722A is stronger than 7722K.
Pair (One Pair)
A pair consists of one and three mismatched pair maps.
There are 1,098,240 combinations Pair. You will have one chance to hit 2.37 this combination is 42,256%.
In case of equality (pair against pair), the highest pair wins (KKA93 is stronger than QQA93). In case of a tie, the highest unpaired card wins (KKA93 is stronger than KKQ93). In case of a tie, we look at the second highest unpaired card (KKA93 is stronger than KKA83). Finally, in case of a tie, we look at the third highest card mismatched (KKA93 is stronger than KKA92).
High card (High card; À la carte)
Sometimes, you have nothing at all. Nada. Niet. However, you can still win the pot if your opponent has, also, nothing! This is called playing the High Card.
There are no less than 1,302,540 combinations High Card. You will have 1 in 2 chance of having this combination (or should I say lack of this combination!) Or 50.117%.
In case of a tie, the highest card wins; event of a tie, we look at the second highest card, and so on until the fifth card. Thus, A9743 will be stronger than K9743 which will in stronger than K8743, which will in stronger than K8742 (you get the idea?) Turn round.
Important Notes:
 ALWAYS A hand of 5 cards. Not 6 or 4.'s Variants with community cards (Texas Hold'em, for example) 6th and 7th cards are therefore NOT to break ties. If still tied, the pot must simply be separated between equal players.
 Spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs: in most variants, they all have the same value. It is therefore hardly ever based on color to break a tie.
 For there is a tie, it is necessary that the 5 cards in the hand have the same numerical value.
 Did you miss your color or your suite with a single card? Infuriating is it not? Unfortunately, your "almost straight" or your "color almost" worthless more!
