State your best poker hand in the following Holdem situations. Try to work out the answer for yourself before clicking on the Show me the answer button:

  Hole Cards     Board Cards  
       

In this example you have made a flush using the 6 in your hand together with four spades on board. Even though you only have the Six in your hand we still call this an Ace-high flush, since the Ace is highest card in your A-9-7-6-4 flush.

  Hole Cards     Board Cards  
       

This board is quite cluttered, with several cards that are close together in rank. In fact, you can make a Jack-high straight using the Ten from your hand with the Jack, Nine, Eight and Seven from the board (J-10-9-8-7). Your Six does not come into play.
