By RTR Dennis
Here at RakeTheRake we are always trying to help our players.
After all, we aren't the house, whether you win or lose you pay rake at a poker room, so whether you win or lose you can claim that Rakeback!
We continue this with an easy reference guide for newer players. We have ranked all of the poker hands in order and created a clear and easy to read table for you to check back to whenever you need. So bookmark this page and you can always quickly and easily find out if your "Four of a Kind beats a Straight Flush", very handy under the pressure of a high stakes game.
You can find the table below where we have put all of the cards rankings in order, from the strongest and often elusive "Royal Flush" down to the lowly but sometimes life-saving "High Card".
We've also written a Texas Hold 'em Poker Guide with all the rules you need to get playing!
