Tap on (icon) to refer to Hand Ranks at any point in the online Poker game.

### Poker Hand Strength (Poker tips)

Hand strength in Poker online is determined by the following order (best to worst)

### 1. Royal Flush

The strongest Poker hand is the Royal Flush. It consists of Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, all of the same suit. Ex: Spades

### 2. Straight Flush

The second strongest hand in online poker is the straight flush. It is composed of five consecutive cards of the same suit. If two players have a straight flush, the one with the highest cards wins.

### 3. Four of a Kind

A four-of-a-kind in a Poker game is four cards of the same rank. e.g. Four Kings. If two players have four-of-a-kind, then the one with the highest four-of-a-kind wins. If they have the same (if four-of-a-kind is on the board), then the player with the highest fifth card wins.

### 4. Full House

A full house is a Poker combination of a three-of-a-kind and a pair. If two players have a full house, then the one with the highest three-of-a-kind wins. If they have the same one, then the pair counts.

### 5. Flush

Five cards of the same suit make up a flush. If two players have a flush, then the one with the highest cards wins.

### 6. Straight

Five consecutive cards is called a straight. If two Poker players have a straight, then the one with the highest cards wins.

### 7. Three of a kind

A three-of-a-kind is a Poker combination of three cards of the same rank. If two players have the same three-of-a-kind, then the other cards, or both cards, determine the winner.

### 8. Two Pair

Two-pair hands are composed of two pairs. If two online Poker players have a two-pair, the rank of the higher pair determines the winner. If they have the same higher pair, then the lower one counts. If that is also the same, then the fifth card counts.

### 9. PAIR

A pair is composed of two cards of the same rank. Since winning Poker hands are always composed of five cards, the other three cards are called 'kickers'. In case two players have the same pair, then the one with the highest kicker wins.

### 10. High Card

If you haven't been able to make any of the hands listed above, then your highest card is considered.

## Variations

### Pot Limit Omaha in online Poker

Pot Limit Omaha is a Popular variant of the Poker games. (Look for the PL Omaha sign on the lobby page.)

### How Pot Limit Omaha differs from regular Poker online:

4 hole cards are dealt instead of 2 to each player.

A player must always use 2 cards from the 4 cards dealt to them, and 3 cards from the 5 community cards to make the best 5 cards.

A limit is placed on the maximum amount that can be raised in a user's turn. A user may raise any amount less than or equal to the pot value (calculated after assuming that the user called the pot).For eg: Player A,B,C and D are playing a hand

• 1. If Player A bets Rs. 10
• 2. Player B Bets Rs. 10
• 3. Player C Bets Rs. 20

manner - if player D wanted to call he would have to put Rs. 20 in the pot. Now the pot value is Rs. 60 (10+10+20+20). So player D can put an additional Rs. 60 (maximum pot value after call) in the pot. Hence the maximum total amount that can be bet by Player D is Rs. 80 (20+60).

### Pot Limit Omaha 5 in online Poker

Pot Limit Omaha 5 is a new variant of Pot Limit Omaha on MPL Poker. (Look for the PL Omaha 5 sign on the lobby page.)

5 hole cards are dealt to each player (instead of 4 in Pot Limit Omaha). Apart from this difference, the rules of the game Pot Limit Omaha apply.
