Standard poker cards
When comparing full houses, the rank of the three cards determines which is higher.
Poker ranks are always based on five cards only, and if these cards are equal the hands are equal, irrespective of the ranks of any unused cards.
This page describes the ranking of poker hands.
Lowest Card Wild Some home poker variants are played with the player's lowest card (or lowest concealed card) wild.Although the order spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs may seem natural to Bridge players and English speakers, other suit orders are common, especially in some European countries.When comparing two such hands, the hand with the higher pair is better - so for example beats 5-5-A-K-Q.Between two fours of a kind, the one with the higher set of four cards is higher - so 3-3-3-3-A is beaten.An ace can be counted as low, so, a is a straight flush, but its top card is the five, not the ace, so it is the lowest type of straight flush.a poker hand consists of five cards.Does player A win by having the highest card within the pair of eights, or does player B win because her highest single card, the jack, is in a higher suit?It is likely that some players would disagree with both the above rulings, preferring to count A-K-Q-J-10 as a straight and in some cases considering A-A to be the highest pair rather than the lowest.
The fifth card, known as the kicker, can be anything.
The only practical effect of the rule against duplicates is to prevent the formation of a "double ace flush".
Since aces are low, this should not count as a straight.
It is then sometimes known as a "fitter".
