With this article, I will describe all possible hands ranking in the razz poker game. A little study before you play always makes your gaming more worthwhile.

Many poker players find razz quite confusing with the time. It takes a little time to learn the hands ranking and years to play like masters.

Best hand:

The wheel is commonly known as the best razz poker hand, that is, {Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5}. If you considering straight and flushes as the best player you will end up nothing in razz poker. The 2nd possible best hand in razz poker could be {Ace, 2, 3, 4, 6}.

It seems very complicated to achieve such hands but I assure you it does not happen the way it looks like. Any better 6 high hands could beat any 7 better hands and it so forth.

The better way to achieve a good hand is to look for your hand high to low order. Suppose you have got the {7, 5, 4, 2, Ace} then you can beat the player with the hand {7, 6, 3, 2, Ace} because you have got the cards that makes the hands in the lower order.

However, your opponent has got the cards that make a hand with the low to high order.

Take it simpler……..lowest hand win always in the showdown.

When the razz poker hand is all done each [layer would have seven cards in hand. You need to develop the best low hand with the given 7 cards to 5 cards.

Make sure you don’t make a straight, pair, flush, etc, higher the hand more the chances to lose the game in razz poker. A hand {5, 5, 3, 2 Ace} will be defeated with the {K, Q, J, T, 9}.

One more point to remember in the razz poker is the aces will always be considered as the low cards when you are playing the razz poker game.
