Online Poker Games

By now you understand that there are different variants of online poker games. At an average site, you can find online poker games ranging from Texas Hold ‘em, Omaha Hi Lo and Stud Poker. However, one thing that stays consistent is the ranking of cards in poker on line. True, there are some variants where a card may have a dual purpose, and for this reason, it is important to study the individual rules of each internet poker variant played.

In general, however, it is safe to say that the Ace is always the highest-ranking card in online poker games. Following the Ace are the King, Queen and Jack (in that order) and then Ten, Nine, Eight, etc. The Two (sometimes known as the Deuce in poker on line) is the lowest ranking card in online poker.

The results of online poker games are determined by which player holds the highest-ranking five-card hand. Poker hand rankings are grouped from the highest Five of a Kind (in the case of jokers or wild cards being used) or a Straight Flush (consisting of five consecutive cards from the same suite). The highest straight flush consists of an Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten and is known as a Royal Flush.
