  • How do hand rankings work in poker? What are the best starting hands?

    It’s important to know the correct poker hand rankings to enable you to have a good chance of winning poker pots and knowing that you have the best hand at showdown.

    Mistakes will cost you chips and money!

    Learn the rankings so the next time you sit down at a poker table, you are 100% confident which hands beat which, also - you can sound like a 'pro' and identify the best poker hand combinations easily.

    In poker 'pre-flop' refers to the moment in a single hand of poker where the players have cards in their hands, but no community (common to all-players in the hand) cards have been dealt on the table yet. Pre-flop is when the first round of betting occurs.

    The best pre-flop hand in Texas Hold’em is a pair of aces, also known as 'pocket rockets', 'American Airlines', 'Aceballs' and a zillion other funky names (what are your favourite or most colourful names for Aces?).

    Here is a poker hand rankings chart showing the top 24 hands you can have pre-flop in a Hold’em game:
