POKER HANDS- HIGH CARD
ONE PAIR—two cards of the same rank. If you have two pocket cards of the same rank, you have one pair. If two cards of the same rank appear on the board, everyone has at least one pair. Any card you hold that matches at least one card on the board gives you one pair.
High Card Example
In the above example both players have a high card Ace, however since the best five cards win, the player holding the higher "kicker" wins the hand. A king is a higher kicker than a queen.
