Not quite sure what hand you have? Did you fold that flush? Fear no more, Sky Poker School is here to help you master the basics!
In No Limit Hold'em poker, players are looking to make the best five card poker hand from the seven at their disposal. The two 'hole cards' dealt to them by the dealer, and the five placed face up known as 'community cards.' Use our hand rankings chart to learn the strength of the hands and the order in which they come. Our very own Sky Poker TV presenters James Hartigan and Tony Kendall explain a little further in the hand rankings video below.
Once you think you know your flushes from your full houses, head to the 'Poker Tips' page to learn what 'hole cards' are the best to start with pre-flop.
