A Full House is when your hand consists of three cards of the same rank, plus a Pair of cards of another rank – for example, 6-6-6-4-4 or 10-10-10-2-2. The ‘Set’ part of the Full House is what’s important here but, when two players have an equally ranked ‘Three-of-a-Kind’, the highest ranked Pair wins instead.
How Do You Rank Full Houses In Poker Online
As with the daftar bandarqq online Straight and the Flush, the Full House, whilst a powerhouse of a hand, requires that you read the community cards correctly for possible problems. For you to hit a Full House, you are going to need one of three scenarios;
- You hold a Pair and a Set appears on the board. Let’s say you hold 77 and the board is 3-3-9-3-10. (This would be referred to as ‘7’s over 3’s)
- You hold two different cards, both of which Pair with a card on the board and, one of those is also a Pair on the board. Now you hold 7-10 (Daniel Negreanu’s famous hand) and the board is: 3-3-7-7-10.
- You hold a Pair and another Pair plus a card to match your existing Pair hits the board. This time you hold 77 again and the community cards on the board are 3-3-9-7-10.
The first type is a problem because there is an obvious Four-of-a-Kind opportunity for your opponents and also blatant Full House for anyone who went into the hand with a pair – low Pairs in your hand are now going to make you very nervous.
Whereas, with the second format, Four-of-a-Kind is much less likely and if you hold the 10-7 you will feel pretty comfortable – only a player with 10’s is going to have a bigger Full House. If your opponent is weak in either scenario it will kill the betting stone dead and you won’t get much payoff despite winning the hand.
The third option is the one where usually, the biggest pay-outs occur. It will appear highly unlikely to your opponent that you hit a low Set (the 3-3 plus a 3 in your hand) as that would be a very loose starting hand required to hit it. It’s also a spot where you can pick off loose players who will over bet hands like A-3 which they shouldn’t have been in the pot with and will now cause them issues as they’ve made trips and think they are strong.
