Online Poker Hands

Our guide to the ranking of poker hands will show you how each 5 card poker hand compares with another. In standard poker games like Hold'em or Omaha there is no ranking of suits in determining the best ranked poker hands however some variations do play a ranking of suits which is hearts (high), diamonds, clubs, spades (low). For instance two players with an eight high straight will split the pot.

To give you more illustration into the likelihood of hitting each hand, we have also included the odds of hitting each particular hand.
