University of California, Los Angeles Department of Statistics Statistics 100A Instructor: Nicolas Christou Poker combinations A Poker hand consists of five cards. Players try for combinations of two or more cards of a kind, five-card sequences, or five cards of the same suit. Poker is played with a standard 52-card deck in which all suits are of equal value, the cards ranking from the ace high, downward through king, queen, jack, and the numbered cards 10 to the deuce. The ace may also be considered low to form a straight (sequence) ace through five as well as high with king-queen-jack-10. Here is the traditional ranking of hands with some examples: 1. Royal Flush (ten-jack-queen-king-ace all of the same suit): 10 , J , Q , K , A . 2. Straight Flush (five cards of the same suit in sequence other than royal flush): 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 . 3. Four of a kind, plus any fifth card: 5 , 5 , 5 , 5 , 4 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
