Poker Hand Rankings
Hey, I’m Nicky Numbers, Professional Poker Player, and today, we’re going to talk about poker hand rankings. What, beats what. Most of the time when you see hand rankings, you see them displayed for all forms of high card poker, rather than what you’re really interested in seeing, which is Texas Hold Em. But really what they aren’t showing you, is just the hand rankings for poker. They’re showing you the hand rankings as if its for Five Card Draw. You know, the game where you see people on t.v. playing with five cards in front of them, like this. The old version of poker. Now, it’s all Hold Em. So, in Texas Hold Em, each player has two down hole cards, and then there are five community cards. These are shared cards that can be used by any player. The best five card hand possible is a royal flush, which is not only cards in order, Ten, Jack, King, Queen, Ace, but also of the same exact suit.
