**Poker Hand Ranking (highest to weakest list):****Five of a Kind**Only possible way to achieve this is by using a wild card (joker).For example:Having four aces and turning your joker into the fifth ace.

**Royal Flush**The five highest cards, the 10 through the Ace, all five of the same

suit. A royal flush is actually an ace-high straight flush. Which suit it

is doesn't matter in poker. Two people with royal flushes would tie.

**Straight Flush**Any five cards of the same suit in consecutive numerical order.

**Four of a Kind**Four cards of the same denomination.

**Full House**Any three cards of the same denomination, plus any pair of a

different denomination. Ties are broken first by the three of a kind,

then the pair.Example: three sevens and two threes.

**Flush**Any five non-consecutive cards of the same suit.

**Straight**Any five consecutive cards of mixed suits. Ace can be high or low.

**Three of a Kind**Three cards of the same denomination.

**Two Pair**Any two cards of the same denomination, plus any other two cards

of the same denomination. If both hands have the same high pair, the

second pair wins. If both pairs tie, the high card wins.

**Pair**Any two cards of the same denomination. In a tie, the high card wins.

**High Card**If no other hand is achieved, the highest card held wins.
