Poker hands ranking:

Royal flush: Five poker cards in sequence and of the same suit, starting from the Ace down to the 10. Example: A K Q J 10 (Note: A Royal Flush is not a category of poker hand in and of itself, it is simply the highest-valued straight flush, and thus also the highest-valued hand. Since it is mentioned often in the context of hand rankings, it is worth noting in this list.)

Straight flush: Any five poker cards in sequence of the same suit. Example: Q J 10 9 8

Four of a kind: A hand with four poker cards of the same rank. Example: 4 4 4 4 9

Full house: A hand with three poker cards of one rank and two of another. Example: 8 8 8 K K

Flush: Five poker cards of the same suit. Example: K J 8 4 3

Straight: Five poker cards in sequence. (The ace can be considered higher than the king, or lower than the two.)

Example: 5 4 3 2 A

Three of a kind: Three poker cards of the same rank. Example: 7 7 7 K 2

Two pair: Two poker cards of one rank, two of another. Example: A A 8 8 Q

One pair: Two poker cards of the same rank. Example: 9 9 A J 4

No pair: Also known as a high card hand. The following example is considered “Ace high.” Example: A 10 9 5 4

The poker hands are ranked in this order because of their relative probabilities, with rarer hands ranking above more common hands. See also Poker probability.

An additional hand type, five of a kind, exists when wild poker cards are used. Five of a kind outranks the straight flush (and therefore the royal flush too) making it the most valuable hand.
