Poker Cheat Sheet

I don't know if there is a real name for it, but 'Cheat Sheet' is what me and buddies call the little piece of paper that most of us keep next to us in a game for the purpose of surreptitiously having a sneak in order to determine our hands, because remembering the sequence of poker hands still alludes me, even after 3 years of playing. Knowing what is what in your hand is probably the most important part of poker, so here it is, the poker novice's (or not-so-novice's) best friend; print it out, stick it up, do what ever you will with it. Your poker hand is the best of the following that you can make up with 5 cards that you have available to you: High Card: When your cards don't make up any of the other combinations you are left with a High Card: The highest card in your hand. One Pair: 2 of the same number or picture. When more than one player has a pair of the same, the winner is determined by who has the next highest card. Two Pair: 2 x pair.

Again when more than one player has the same two pairs it is the remaining card in the hand that decides the winner. Three of a kind: 3 of the same number and 2 cards that are not related. When more than one player has a 3 of a kind, the hand with the highest value of the 3 cards wins.

Straight: five cards in sequence but not of the same suit. The highest run wins, e.g. 3,4,5,6,7, looses to 5,6,7,8,9.

Flush: All the same suit but not in sequence, e.g. all clubs. Should two players have a flush, the highest card in the hand determines the winner; if this is the same for both, the next highest card is looked to, and so on. Full House: one pair plus three of a kind. If two players have full houses the highest 3 of a kind determines the winner.

Should both have the same 3 of a kind, as is possible in a wilds game, the one with the highest pair wins. Straight Flush: All the same suit, all in sequence. The highest card of the sequence determines the winner. Royal Flush: Not really a hand as it is simply the highest straight flush possible; 10, J, Q, K, A all of the same suit. Five of a Kind: Many tables do not accept five of a kind, but for those that do; this is 5 cards of the same value, with a wild card as the 5th.
