A Flush is a very strong hand in poker. A Royal Flush is extremely rare. And that assumes you never fold.
The hand is so rare that most poker players can remember all Royal Flushes they have been dealt in their life time.
Straight Flushes are almost as rare as Royal Flushes. A Royal Flush can be any of the 4 suits, spades, hearts, diamonds, or clubs. A poker hand can consist of up to 5 kickers.
A player with no pair only has kickers. A player with one pair has 3 kickers, a player with trips has 2 kickers, and a player with 2 pair or quads has 1 kicker.
Meaning, A is a straight. There are also lowball poker variations where the Ace counts as the lowest card. So no, J-Q-K-A-2 is no straight in poker.
So no, Q-K-A is no straight in poker. For a straight you need to use all 5 cards. There are no cards left for a kicker. The rank of the straight is determined by the highest card.
A flush in poker is hand which consists of 5 cards of the same suit. The same color red or black is not enough. It has to 5 spades, hearts, diamonds, or clubs.
There are no distinctions between the 4 possible Royal Flushes in poker. A Royal Flush in spades is as good as a Royal Flush in hearts, diamonds, or clubs.
Only in very rare occasions for example when dealing for the button the suits are ranked in poker. In this case the ranking is: 1.
Suits are otherwise generally not ranked in poker. A Flush in spades is as good as a flush in any other suit, only the ranks of the cards matter. To win a bad beat jackpot in poker you need to lose with a very strong hand, usually a strong Full House Aces Full.
The odds of hitting a bad beat jackpot in poker depend on the rules for the jackpot. If you have to lose with Aces Full or better your odds of hitting the bad beat jackpot are , If you have to lose with quads or better your odds are , assuming a 10 player table where nobody ever folds.
It is also a bad beat if you lose an all-in while being far ahead and you opponent wins by catching some miracle cards. There are exactly 2,, different 5 stud poker hands possible.
In this case the pot is split and both players receive half the pot. For that to happen the 5 community cards need to form a Royal Flush.
In that case all players in the hand win and split the pot. If two players have the same hand, the pot is split and both players win half of it.
This can happen for example if both players have the same cards e. Ace-King and nobody makes a Flush. In Video Poker you can win the jackpot when you hit a Royal Flush.

Most of what needs to be said about Ace Queen off suit was covered in the suited entry for the hand, as they both play in a very similar fashion.
Doyle Brunson was no dummy, and if he avoided playing A Q at all costs, he had a good reason. Sure, poker has evolved in many ways since the days of the Texas road gamblers, but one truth remains unchanged: A Q is always dominated by A K.
So playing A Q was never a winning proposition, because it was almost always running up against A K or a big pocket pair. Things have changed though, and today most holdem players in tournaments and cash games alike will gladly take a flop with A J, A 10, or K Q — all hands which are dominated by A Q.
So by all means, feel free to loosen up your game just a bit with A Q in the hole. But be cognizant of the cooler factor — or the tendency for big hands to collide in seemingly set up collisions — and realize that sometimes an ace high flop just means you have the second best hand.
The reason for this is the perception of playability. In short, most recreational players like the look of any suited ace high hand because it offers a draw to the nut flush.
So after squeezing a hand like A 9 suited, most casual players perk up and put calling chips into the pot, even at the price of an open or three bet, just for the privilege of trying to flop two or three of the right suit.
Of course, the odds of flopping a flush are a paltry to 1 against, for just an 0. Flopping just a flush draw is an 8.
So more often than not, playing a hand like A 9 suited will result in a complete whiff on flush outs, with you chasing a flush draw, or the all too common outkicked ace scenario.
Throw in a few percentage points of equity lost by losing the suited element, and K Q off suit becomes another hand that simply plays poorly post flop against competent players.
The snowmen are a favorite hand for set miners, as a third eight on the board tends to fit in with the likely range of opponents in many pots.
Players sitting on connectors or one gappers between 5 6 and 9 10 are usually happy to see an eight arrive on board, as it adds either gutshot or open ended straight draw possibilities.
So unlike pocket pairs like deuces, when you happen to hit a huge hand with a set or better of eights, the likelihood that someone else made a quality second best hand is higher.
Pocket eights are a right in the middle of the pair range, so they should be approached as such: nothing to scoff at, but nothing special either.
One of those curious holdem hands that looks a lot better than it really is, King Nine suited has more drawbacks working against it than anything else.
Simply put, K 9 suited is tailor made hand for landing second best hands. Ten Nine suited is a perfectly playable drawing hand that holds plenty of potential for taking down premium holdings.
It makes three nut straights 6 7 8, 7 8 J, 8 J Q, two of which are nicely disguised on most boards, giving you a good chance to sneak up on opponents who become overly attached to their hands.
The goal with a hand like 10 9 suited before the flop should be to see three cards as cheaply as possible. So the same caveats about the danger of chasing flush draws and watching out for kicker trouble apply.
The goal with a hand like this is just to pick your spots wisely, and avoid investing too much of your stack in marginal drawing spots. A watered down version of Queen Ten suited, the Queen Nine suited is a hand that looks more playable than it really is.
On flops like J 10 X, for example, spiking a King to make a straight can be disastrous when your opponent shows up with A Q.
This hand, like many of those to come, is really playable based on position more than any other factor.
It only merits entering unraised pots when most of the table has already folded around, or defending your blinds in certain spots. The fact that Jack Nine suited is ranked one position better than the Ace Jack off suit below, despite a clearly inferior kicker, speaks to its strong drawing potential.
The J 9 suited can obviously make a flush and a straight flush if fate is smiling on you that day, but the real advantage is found in several favorable straightened board.
Obviously, boards containing the 8 10 X or 10 Q X offer open ended draws. But when you combine those boards, with something like 7 10 K, the J 9 connects for a double gutshot, or double belly buster, straight draw.
But as experienced players can attest, when playing A J off suit the best case scenario is finding a jack on board — not an ace. In either case, you should exercise caution when it comes to risking major portions of your stack on A J off suit — pre flop or post flop.
In a pre flop confrontation, A J is flipping at best and dominated at worse, and against snug opponents acting aggressively after the flop, the likelihood of facing an ace with a better kicker or an overpair to jacks is high.
Despite the warnings against aces with low kickers, many showdowns will see Ace Five suited tabled. Players like the added equity provided by the wheel straight A 2 3 4 5 possibility, while any ace high suited hand can make the nuts with three more suits on board.
Of course, the most likely scenario with a hand like A 5 suited is pairing just your ace alone, which can cause trouble as the pot escalates due to the oft cited kicker trouble.
Thus, A 5 suited should be considered a boom or bust hand, or one that works only when you hit a straights or a flush rather than one pair.
From late position, you should probably be folding A 5 suited rather than calling raises, but opening an unraised pot is considered standard.
If you can see a flop for a relatively cheap price, scoring that third seven for a set can generate major payouts on big pots. As your basic middle of the road suited ace, a hand like Ace Seven suited really has one prime directive above all else: make the nut flush.
So the plan with A 7 suited in multiway pots should generally be to find a four card flush draw — and pay the correct price to chase it.
One of the more overplayed hands in holdem, the King Jack off suit happens to be a sight for sore eyes with two face cards after long runs of fruitless starting hands.
But all things considered, the hand really looks much better than it really is. K J off suit plays much better as a cheap hand in multiway pots, perhaps limping in late after a few limps, calling out of the blinds, or checking your option.
On the flop, the objective is to find a face card or two, while Q 10 X offers the classic open ended straight draw in which an ace or a nine gives you the nuts.
The big problem with this hand, however, occurs when you hit one pair, because both you jacks and kings will suffer from kicker trouble against solid players who have called or raised pre flop.
These low suited aces are essentially the same hand, offering nut flush possibilities supplemented by a single wheel straight board for each.
Players tend to speculate with Ace Four and Ace Three suited because they can hit that extra straight in addition to the nut flush, and even aces with low kickers can win their fair of showdowns after pairing up.
These three hands are the target when playing Q J off suit, and while two pair or trips will do in a pinch, making one pair with this hand can spell disaster if you become too attached.
Throw in the flush possibilities, and experienced players have no problem putting a few chips into the pot to speculate with 10 8 suited.
Novices players like Ace Deuce suited because they enjoy the concept of having flush, wheel straight, and even straight flush possibilities before the flop.
And yes, a few baby card boards with a suit or two in your favor will create the right conditions for a sneakily good hand.
But the ace high component can become overvalued, especially when the board brings just an ace and no deuce.
Even with the lowest kicker in the world, many pots are played to showdown anyway holding A 2 suited in the hole — usually when a player flops both an ace or a deuce and a flush draw.
If you make two pair, trips, or a flush in these spots, more power and probably the pot to you. But when you miss, the fishing expedition you just embarked on usually costs a decent chunk of chips.
Flush draws are always nice, but pretty much any middle card heavy board will offer one form of straight draw or another. The optimal scenario with 8 9 and J 8 suited is to land both draws at once, giving you at least 17 outs and a huge chance to take down basically any other opponent hand from pocket aces to top set.
The off suit variety should be played cautiously on ace high boards, and while you might get away with pushing the action initially, getting played back at is usually a sign of trouble.
After all, consider a board like A 9 8. Sure, you still beat A 7, A 6, A 5, A 4, A 3, and A 2, but opponents tend to play the first group of six a lot more than the second group, illustrating why A 10 off suit is seldom the best hand on an ace high board.
The Queen Eight suited does offer straight potential on 9 10 J boards, but those usually see K Q show up for the nut straight to beat the dummy end.
This hand has plenty of potential when the board comes Q J X, but making single pair hands is usually bad news with K 10 off suit.
Limping and calling from early or middle position, and opening or calling from late position, is generally the correct approach with 5 5 in the hole.
Along with its propensity for making nut hands, J 10 off suit is usually worth seeing the flop whenever possible from most positions.
The classic suited connector favored by players like Daniel Negreanu, the Seven Eight suited offers tremendous upside and relatively little risk.
The point of a purely speculative hand like 7 8 suited is to see the flop for cheap, preferably in a multiway pot, and find some sort of draw to work with.
As a great blind defense hand, or even when stealing, 7 8 suited offers an inherent backup plan when any middle card heavy board happens to hit.
During a long barren stretch of bad hands, boredom can turn Q 10 off suit into a quite lovely hand to see.
Both will produce the nut straight if you hit either side of the draw, making Q 10 a tried and true nut hand when it finds the right board. The three baby pocket pairs above can all be played in essentially the same fashion.
But aside from these exceptions, the lowest pocket pairs in holdem are best played as set miners. Some players swear by the concept of one gap hands 7 — 9, 8 — 10, etc.
As an example, consider a flop like 5 8 J where one of the cards is in your suit. That is, any 6 or any 10 will complete respective gutshot straight draws, while any diamond will increase your out count from eight to 17 heading to the river.
The 7 9 suited should be approached as a low risk, high reward proposition, so unless you connect with the board to gain 8 outs or more, laying it down in the face of post flop aggression is a prudent choice.
A mini me clone of Seven Eight suited, the Six Seven suited plays in almost identical fashion: connecting with baby and middle card boards to create a wealth of straight, flush, and combo draws.
Try to enter the pot as cheaply as possible with the 6 7 suited, before taking advantage of boards ranging from 4 5 X to 8 9 X.
If suited connectors are the standard, and one gap hands have a loyal following, two gappers like Ten Seven suited are the black sheep of the holdem hand family.
But in the hands of a thinking, skilled player who knows exactly how to assess concepts like board texture and opponent ranges, 10 7 suited plays quite well on raggedy, seemingly unconnected boards like 6 8 X, 8 J X, 9 J X, 10 7 X, and the like.
Simply keep it in the back of your mind that one of your suit on the flop, along with a pair or a decent straight draw, can become a huge drawing hand on the turn if a second suited card hits the board.
The five suited king high hands shown above K 6, K 5, K 4, K 3, and K 2 play in basically the same way. If the game is passive and you can see flops for a limp or an open against one or two players, suited king rags hold a certain level of playability.
See the entry for Queen Seven off suit, the famous computer hand, and simply add in a few percentage points of equity for having suited cards.
What you have then in Q 7 suited is the definition of a middling, marginal hand — one which will only really be played out of positional necessity.
Your standard suited one gapper comprised of middle cards, the Six Eight suited is a nice hand to splash around with in a cheap pot against a few opponents.
Avoid calling raises with 6 8 suited except when defending a blind, and instead focus on over limping or opening yourself from late position.
Your standard baby card suited connector, the Five Six suited has probably been shown down against flabbergasted amateurs more than any other hand.
The glory days of televised poker games involving Negreanu, Gus Hansen, and Tom Dwan — all players who love to mix it up with any two cards — informed the poker public about the sneaky strength of suited connectors.
One big problem to avoid with 5 6 suited is the classic 7 8 X board. Think about it— if that 9 comes to create a 7 8 X 9 board, your 5 6 straight is actually the third best straight out there.
Both 6 10 and the much more likely J 10 have you drawing dead, while any face or ace 10 type hand has seven outs to run you down going to the river.
Instead, the best draw you can hope to find with 5 6 suited comes on the 3 4 X board, preferably with one or two of your suits mixed in.
If suited two gappers stretch the boundaries of playability, suited three gappers like Jack Seven suited are just no good.
You might think that starting hand strategy in poker is all about getting big cards and winning with them, but that's only half the story.
The other half of the story is avoiding getting yourself into situations where you call down with weak cards.
If you've played poker already, you'll probably nod your head in agreement when you hear this situation:.
You're in the Big Blind and you catch top pair on the flop with a weak kicker. A player bets, and you call the flop with your top pair. The player bets both the turn and river, and you call again even when you really don't want to.
When you turn your cards over, you find to your dismay that your opponent has a bigger kicker and wins the pot. You've just been out-kicked!
This happens all the time and the key is to let it happen to your opponents - not you! Always remember this fundamental principle to poker: "A bet saved is a bet earned!
