The poker deck consists of 52 cards that are ordered by poker card rank in the following order: A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. The same cards of different suits have the same poker card rank.
For example - the king of spades and the king of hearts both have the same value.
A poker hand consists of five cards. Any poker hand ranking in a higher category beats any hand in a lower hand ranking category. For example, any flush wins any two pairs. Between hands in the same poker hand ranking the rank of the individual cards decides which is better. For example, if both players have three of a kind, one of them Q's and the other J's, the Q's three of a kind would win.
Following is the ranking of poker hands ordered from highest(best) hand to lowest(worst) hand. Other instructions on online poker is available at poker4real.com
