Hierarchy of Poker Combinations
The seniority of combinations in poker is determined by the rules of a particular game. However, there are several common types of the hierarchy of poker combinations that are subordinate to the same evaluation method. It is about them will be discussed in this article.
high or hi
High Hierarchy (from English high – high) – a classic definition of the seniority of combinations in poker, where the piano flash – the oldest combination. The high hierarchy of combinations includes Texas Hold’em, Stack Poker, Dro Poker, and Omaha Poker. The hierarchy of combinations from senior to junior is as follows:
- Royal Flush – highest combination – A K Q J 10 of one suit
- Straight Flush
- quad of a Kind
- full house
- set or trips or triplets.
- Two Pairs.
- High Card is the definition of kicker winnings.
The rule of determining the hierarchy when the players have the same combinations: the combination with the older cards wins. If the combination has the same cards and the same rank, the winnings are determined by the Senior Kicker.
low or lo
The low hierarchy (from English low to low) turns the standard high hierarchy seniority upside down, i.e. in this way of determining the seniority, the highest will be the combination that is the lowest in the high hierarchy. This hierarchy is used in Lowball Poker, Raz. In the example of 2-7 Loball poker, I will list the low hierarchy from the senior combination to the lower one. But first I will explain that in this poker Ace is the highest card, and the lowest card is the two. The highest combinations are five cards of different suits, but without a pair and ligaments, and necessarily with a seven. There are no certain names, there are different designations, I’ll lead to what I am used to in poker 2-7 lobby: the name of the combination is called on the highest card. I.e., if the senior card is a seven, the combination is called a seven-low; if the senior card is an eight, the combination is called an eight-low; the senior nine gives the combination a girl-low name, etc. But there won’t be a six-low, because the 65432 cards will make a street.
