Canadian guide for winning online poker hands

Many Canadians looking to win hands of online poker might wonder how the rules for winning online might be different than the rules for winning at a traditional game of poker. Rest assured that most of the time, the poker rules dictating who wins each hand are more or less the same no matter where you play, be it an online poker game, at a casino in Canada, or anywhere else in the world. Here is a quick and easy reference for the poker rules behind who wins each online poker hand.

There are ten basic categories that you need to know in order to understand who wins in online poker. The best hand is, of course, a royal flush, which entails holding five consecutive cards (called a straight), all of the same suit (a flush), from ten to ace. The next best hand is also a straight flush that contains five consecutive cards all belonging to the same suit.

The next best hand is four of a kind (four aces, four kings, etc.), followed by a full house, which is three of a kind and two of a kind. These hands are followed by a flush, then a straight, then three of a kind, then a two pair, and finally one pair. The lowest ranking hand is one in which the player has nothing but one card that is higher than the rest, called a high card.

For example, if you’re playing a game of online poker in Canada, and one poker player has a pair of aces and another poker player has three tens, the player with the three tens is the winner. With this simple guide to how to rank online poker hands, any Canadian poker player can easily discern who is the winner of any poker hand.
