Classificação de Mãos

Você pode vencer uma mão de poker de duas maneiras: forçando todos os seus oponentes a desistir das suas caras ou tendo a melhor mão no showdown. Portanto, você precisa conhecer a classificação de mãos de poker, por exemplo, o que ganha do que.

No Texas Hold’em, os jogadores formam a melhor mão usando as suas duas cartas próprias e as cinco cartas comunitárias. Uma mao de poker deve consistir de cinco cartas e não importa quantas das suas cartas próprias você usa. Algumas vezes você usará ambas, algumas apenas uma e em algumas ocasiões nenhuma das suas cartas próprias será usada. Se as cartas comunitárias, por exemplo, forem A♥K♥Q♥J♥10♥ então todos os jogadores restantes terão um Royal Flush. É impossível ganhar desta mão com quaisquer cartas próprias.

All suits in poker have the same value. It makes no difference whether someone has the ace of clubs or diamonds. If the remaining players have exactly the same hand at showdown, with only different suits, the pot is split.

Hand Ranking

The value of poker hands is determined by how difficult it is to receive hands, with more common hands having less value than rarer hands. The complete list of poker hands is below, in ascending order:

    1. High letter
    2. A couple
    3. Two Pairs
    4. Crack
    5. Sequence
    6. Flush
    7. full house
    8. Block
    9. straight flush

High letter

If you don’t have any pair, set, straight, flush, full house, etc., then the highest card in your hand is considered decisive. The hand above, in which the best card is an Ace and there is no other poker hand combination, is known as “Ace High”.

Ace high beats King high. King High beats Queen High, and so on.

If the highest cards in two players’ hands are the same, the second highest card becomes decisive. If these are also equal, the third highest decides and so on. These cards are known as kickers.

High card Ace, King of kicker.

Player 1 has A♠K♣
Player 2 has A♦Q♦
The board is 9♠6♥4♥3♠2♣

Both players have an Ace, but Player 1 wins because he has a King as his second highest card (kicker). Your opponent only has one queen.

A couple

If you can form a hand containing two cards of the same rank, you have a pair. The hand above contains a pair of aces, with a kicker king. A pair of aces beats any other hand containing only one pair in NLHE (aces are high in poker). The king would be decisive if an opponent also had a pair of aces.

Two Pairs

If you have two different pairs in your hand, then you have “two pair”. In the hand above you have two pair, kings and queens.
Hand ranking is important. Two pairs, kings and queens, beat queens and jacks for example. And the biggest pair is always decisive. Two pair, aces and three, beat two pair, kings and queens. (A♣A♦3♣3♦4♣ is better than K♣K♦Q♣Q♦4♣)

If two players have the same two pair, the fifth card in the hand is decisive. (3♣3♦6♠6♥A♠ wins 3♣3♦6♠6♥10♦

Crack

Three cards of the same rank are also known as “Trica”.

You have a set when your own cards contain a pair and you hit one more of the same with the community cards. If you have 7♦7♥ and the board is A♣K♣7♠6♥J♦, then you have a set with 7♦7♥7♠. You can also make a set if you already have a pair on the board and one of your own cards is of the same rank.

It is preferable to make a set holding a pair in your hand, as otherwise your opponent can also have the same set, but with a better kicker or even a full house.

Sequence

A straight consists of five consecutive cards of different suits. The hand above is a “sequence to king” as the highest card is a king. If two players have a straight, the highest card wins.

Flush

A flush consists of five non-consecutive cards of the same suit. It doesn’t matter what suit you hold, and card rankings are only important if you’re facing another flush.

The “nut flush” is the name given to the highest possible flush, typically with the ace. Your own cards are A♥K♥ and the flop comes Q♥4♥10♥, you’ve hit a nut flush on the flop.

If two players have a flush, the player with the highest card wins. If two players have the same highest card, the second highest card wins, etc.

If Player 1 has 3s8s and Player 2 has Ad9s on an A♠Q♠10♥7♠2♠ table, Player 2 has a flush with the 9♠, which is in front of Player 1 who have the 8s.

full house

A full house consists of a set plus a pair. The hand above is called “full of aces with sevens” because the player has three aces and two sevens.

The ranking of the card in the three of a kind is decisive, so A♣A♦A♥7♣7♦ wins 7♣7♦7♠A♦A♣.

In poker parlance, a full house is also known as a “boat”.

Block

The quad consists of four cards of the same rank and one card of the other. If two players have a court, which is very rare, then the court with the highest hand ranking wins. If two players have the same quad, the kicker card is decisive.

Straight Flush

A straight flush consists of five consecutive cards of the same suit. If two players have a straight flush, the one with the highest card wins.

The highest possible straight flush, and also the best hand in poker, is a straight flush to an ace, also known as…

Royal Flush

A royal flush consists of a straight from ten to ace with five cards of the same suit (A♥K♥Q♥J♥10♥). A royal flush is exceptionally rare and therefore the most coveted poker hand.

Split pot

If two or more players reach the showdown with a hand of equal value, then the pot is split and each remaining player receives the same value.

For example, if Player 1 has A♥2♥ and Player 2 has Ad9d at a table A♣Q♥8♥8♣3♣, then both players have two pair (aces and eights ) with a kicker queen. The 9♦ is higher than the 2♠, but it doesn’t play, because only the poker hands with the best five cards count. It’s a split pot.

The pot can also be split in the following example: Player 1 has 5s4h and Player 2 has AdAs at a table Q♣J♥10♥9♣8♣.

Both players have an identical straight. Aces do not play, as they do not contribute to making the best five-card poker hand.

Split pots happen frequently in Hold’em, as five of the seven cards available are identical for all players. If the last two cards are of the same rank as well, or are not necessary to form the best possible hand, then the pot is automatically split. When both players start with similar hands, for example 7♣8♣ versus 8♥7♥, the result is almost always a split pot.

the kicker

As mentioned in some of the previous examples, a kicker determines who wins at the showdown if two players have the same hand. It’s not a key component of making the hand, but it can decide who wins if two players have similar hands.

A hand is made up of five cards, but only the straight, flush, full house and a straight flush use all five cards. Therefore, with hands where not all cards are needed to make the hand, such as a set and two pair, the remaining cards can be decisive.

If Player 1 manages to form A♠J♥8♠6♣7♣ and Player 2 A♠J♥10♣9♦6♣, the Tc in Player 2’s hands is decisive .
on the other hand, if Player 1 has K♥Q♥ and Player 2 has Q♣J♦, with the table Q♠Q♦7♣A♠2♥, then Player 1 wins. Although both players have three Queens, Player 1’s K♥ is decisive.
