Poker Walk Rules
Poker Hand Rankings
Jokers are WILD!
*Rules for ranking cards:
Aces count high for all hands- e.g. a pair of Aces beats a pair of Kings. In a
straight an Ace can count low (e.g. A, 2, 3, 4, 5) or high (e.g. 10, J, Q, K, A) but
NOT BOTH (e.g. Q, K, A, 2, 3 is Not a straight).
Rankings (Highest to Lowest):
Five of a Kind:Fivecards of the same rank e.g. four Aces, four Kings etc PLUS a Joker or Five of the same rank (e.g. 5 kings, 5 aces, etc…)
Royal Flush: Run of sequential cards from 10 – A, with all cards of the same suit.
Straight Flush: Run of sequential cards, all cards in the same suit, but not Ace high.
Four of a Kind: Four cards of the same rank e.g. four Aces, four Kings etc…
Full House: Three cards of the same rank plus a pair, e.g. three Aces & pair of Kings.
Flush: Five cards all of the same suit.
Straight (Run): Five sequential cards, not of the same suit.
Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same rank e.g. three Aces, three Kings etc…
Two Pair: Two sets of pairs e.g. a pair of Aces and a pair of Kings.
Pair: Two cards of the same rank e.g. two Aces, two Kings etc…
High Card: None of the above
*Joker Wild Rules:A Joker may be played as any card. Any all natural hand will win over the
same hand using a Joker (e.g. 3 Kings Beats 2 Kings and Joker; 3 Aces Beat 2 Aces and
Joker) Standard card rank rules apply (See Rules for ranking cards).
