Now let’s review the fancy terminology. The highest hand in poker that cannot be beaten is the Royal Flush. Very simply, a Royal Flush is the cards that run from 10 up to the Ace, with the same suit. Another high hand is a Straight Flush, which consists of any five consecutive cards that consist of the same symbol, or suit. Four of a kind is when you have all four cards of the suit category, for example a king of hearts, a king of diamonds, a king of spades and king of clubs. Knowing your poker hands is important especially if you pan to play a game like high stakes poker.
