To determine the winner of the poker game, look first at the type of hand each player has and its rank. A flush beats a straight, three of a kind beats a pair, and so on. The player with the highest 5 card score wins.

For example, the following cards are on the table; K-K-K-K-J. Player 1 has A-Q and Player 2 A-A. The pot will be split to both players. Because they both share the same 5 card score K-K-K-K-A. What is a split pot?

If two players have the same type of hand, look next at the rank of the cards within the hand. A straight consisting of 7-8-9-10-Jack beats a straight of 4-5-6-7-8. A pair of Queens beats a pair of 5s. For flushes, the highest-ranking card within the flush determines the winner.

If the hands are still tied, look at the highest-ranking remaining card in the hand. This is called the “kicker” A pair of 9s with a King kicker beats a pair of 9s with a 10 kicker.

Finally, for High Card hands, the highest card in each hand determines the winner. A King-high hand always beats a Queen-high hand. If the high cards tie, look at the second highest card. If there is still a tie, look at the third highest card to break the tie, and so on. Thus, a hand of King-Jack-8-4-3 beats a hand of King-Jack-7-6-5.
