A Full House consists of three cards of the same rank, or value, plus two cards of the same rank. When describing a full house consisting of three queens and two 5s, for example, you would call the hand “queens over fives,” “queens full of fives” or “queens full.”
If two players both have a full house, the player with the highest-ranking three cards wins. For example, three queens beats three 10s.
A Full House is a very good hand, it is beaten only by a Royal Flush, Straight Flush or Four of a Kind. A Full House will beat everything else including a Flush, Three of a Kind, One Pair and No Pair hands.
Poker is generally played with a deck of 52 playing cards divided into four groups called suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. Each suit consists of 13 ranked cards.
The highest ranked card in each suit is the ace, followed by the king, queen, jack and the remaining cards, numbered 10 down to 2. A joker is sometimes added to the deck as a wild card —a card which can be substituted into a hand for any card. In every game of poker, players compete with five-card combinations called hands.
To win, players must have a more valuable hand than their opponents. Hands are ranked based on how rarely they occur. The various hands, from royal flush to no pair, are ranked from highest to lowest.
