  • When we are referring to best 5 card combination keep in mind that poker cards are ranked from 2 to A. Poker suits (hearts (high), diamonds, clubs, spades) have no value and are used for determining flush

Poker Combinations
5 Card Draw. Best 5 card combination. Player 1: Flush of Hearts. Player 2: Flush of Spades Same Card Rank. Pot is split.

  • In case players have poker hands from the same poker hand ranking category the higher ranked combination beats the lower ranked one.

If poker hands belong to the same category and all 5 cards are equally ranked then the pot will be split equally (picture above).
