Poker hand terminology

  • Hole Cards – cards that each participant receives face down at the start of the game.
  • Community Cards– Cards that are revealed face up on the board during betting rounds.
  • Pocket Pair– When a player receives two cards of the same value.
  • Suited– two face up cards of the same suit.

For example – if you have a Q and 10 of Hearts, it will be called Queen-10 suited.

  • Off Suit– Two face up cards of different suits. For example – If you have K of Hearts and J of Diamonds then you have King-Jack out of suit.
  • Royal Flush– an unbeatable combination. A royal flush is an ace-high straight flush.
  • Straight Flush– Five cards of the same suit in numerical order. If two players have a straight flush, the player with the stronger cards in value wins.
  • Four of a Kind (Quads)– Quads are four cards of the same rank/any suit.
  • Full House (Full Boat)– Threesome and a couple. If two players have a full house, the player with the higher three cards of the same value wins
  • Flush– Five cards of the same suit. If all five cards of two players are of the same value, the pot is divided equally between them.
  • Straight– Five cards in numerical order. The player with the strongest hand wins the pot.
  • Three of a Kind / Set– Three cards of the same value. If two players hold threes, the player with the stronger cards wins.
  • Two pairs– two different pairs. If one pair of two players’ cards is similar, the other pair determines the winner. If both pairs are the same, the player with the highest kicker card wins.
  • One Pair– Two cards of the same value. If two players have the same pair of cards, the player with the stronger kicker card wins.
  • High Card – The hand with the highest card(s) wins.

Pocket Aces – The strongest pre-flop hand that can be played from any position on the table. It is also known as Bullets, American Airlines, Pocket Rockets, Batteries and Snake Eyes.

Pocket Kings– It is considered the second best pre-flop hand after Aces. Pocket kings are also called Cowboys, Ace Magnets, Elvis Presley and King Kong.

Pocket Queens – The third best starting hand that can help you win big, but it will be hard to play if more cards hit after the flop. It is also known as checkers.

Ace-King Suited – Although this pair is strong pre-flop, you have to play carefully if you miss the flop. She is also known as Big Slick, Anna Kournikova, King Arthur and Korean Airlines.
