Poker Hand Ratings
Here is a set of hand rankings that is almost universally accepted to determine the winner of a hand of poker. Listed below from strongest to weakest.
In the event of a tie, the player with the highest hand is determined by the value of the cards.
For example: If two players had the highest ranked hand of a straight, one with an 8 high and the other being 9 high, the 9 high straight would be awarded the pot.
Similarly, if two players hold the highest hand of a pair of kings, the highest card outside of the pair, the kicker, will determine the winner of the hand.
When multiple players have exactly the same ranked hand, the pot will be split between them. If the amount of the pot cannot be split evenly amongst the winners, the remainder is given to the player(s) nearest the Dealer button.
