Hand Rankings

The winning hand is determined by seeing which hand has the strongest combination of cards, using any combination of “pocket” cards and “community” cards in Texas Hold’em, and a combination of 2 “pocket” cards and 3 “community” cards in Omaha and in Omaha Hi/Lo. The combinations are listed here from strongest to weakest hand.
