Hi, I’m Melissa Powell with Expert Village.
And now we’re going to go over the value of
the hands. One of the important components
of playing poker and if you don’t know this,
you’re not going to be able to win the game.
The highest most important hand you could
possibly get in poker is called a strait royal
flush. A very very rare hand, but the one
you always want to definitely try to get.
This is the example of a strait royal flush.
You’ll notice all of the cards are of the
same suit, they’re all hearts. And they go
from a ten to an Ace. The five highest cards
you can possibly have in a suit. And they
are also the royal flush which denotes that
they have the high value face cards. This
again is called the royal strait flush. The
highest hand you can have in poker. The next
highest hand you can have in poker is a strait
flush. So the only component that’s different,
is that its not a royal flush. But once again,
all of the cards will be in order. And they
will all be of the same suit. So they are
all spades. They’re in order, but they are
not all royal. That’s the next highest hand
you can have in poker. The next highest hand
you can have in poker is a four of a kind
when you have four cards of the same number.
So this is exactly what it looks like. So
you’ll have one card that doesn’t necessarily
fit it with any of your other cards. But the
next four will all be the same number. Whether
they’re 5’s, Queens, Tens, and Jacks. It doesn’t
make any difference. If they are all four
the same number, that’s called four of a kind.
The next highest hand you can have in poker
is called a full house. When all five cards
together make what your house is called full,
it?s when you have three cards of one kind,
and two kinds of another. So for example,
let?s say you have three 4’s and two Kings.
That is called a full house. Doesn’t make
any difference if these were Kings and these
were 4’s, as long as you have three cards
of one kind and two of another. Together this
makes a full house. So those are the best
hands you can get in poker. The highest are
most definitely the ones you want to aim for.
Now that you know that, let?s move on to the
more typical hands in poker that you’ll see
all the time, and that you’ve got to keep
your eyes peeled out for. So let?s look at
