List Of Poker Hands
You have two hearts in your hand and there are another two on the flop. If a hand doesn’t fall into any of the above categories, then it is judged on the value of the highest ranked card among the five. In this example we have a hand which is Queen high.
A Straight Flush consists of 5 consecutive cards in the same suit and may have a high card of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, or Ace for a total of 10 different ranks. Since there are only 4 different suits, there are only 4 possible Royal Straight Flushes. When we subtract the 4 Royal Straight Flushes from the total of 40 Straight Flushes, we are left with 36 other Straight Flushes that are King high or less.

Even if there are 2 cards to come (i.e. you’re on the flop), you should still only work out the odds of improving your hand for the next card only.
The categories of hand, from highest to lowest, are listed below. Any hand in a higher category beats any hand in a lower category .

2.After inspecting their hand, players decide to either fold or place a Raise wager. The Raise wager may be up to 3x the Ante with a 6 or 7-card Flush, up to 2x the Ante with a 5-card flush or 1x the Ante with a 4-card flush or less.

However, when you miss a flush, you are often left with a very weak hand, which may not be able to beat even a single pair. This is because pairs and three of a kind necessarily contain different suits, but someone on a flush draw is collecting cards of the same suit. This is one reason it is important that you are able to distinguish when your opponents are on flush draws. If you can put them on a flush draw, you can use this information to your advantage.
