TEXAS HOLD'EM HAND RANKINGS


POKER, TEXAS HOLD'EM - TEXAS HOLD'EM HAND RANKINGS

In Texas hold’em poker, the players compare each others’ five card hands and this way they determine who the winner is. Therefore, it is extremely important that every player knows what the hand rankings of the game are. Otherwise, he won't be able to make the right decisions. For example, a four-of-a-kind hand is better than a three-of-a-kind hand and therefore the poker player with the four-of-a-kind is the winner. You can see the hand rankings on the picture on the right. Below, you may see a list of the hands in Texas hold’em poker from best to worst – the better the position, the stronger the hand.
