In the first part of this exercise on poker hands, you learnt the names, what cards they are made from and strength (from which is the best to which is the worst) of the 10 groups of hands which you can have in poker. In this second part, you are going to be tested if you can order 12 different sets of 5 cards from the best to the worst.
Being able to do this is essential when playing a game of poker. Because if you don't, it is very easy to get confused and make mistakes (which I have done on several occasions).
If you haven't done the first part of exercise, I would strongly recommend that you do that before you try this exercise. It will help to do this exercise better and quicker.

To help you do this exercise, below is the order/rank of the ten different hands/combination of cards in Poker which you read in the first part of this exercise. You don't need to read it again. I would only use this if you are unsure about where to rank/order the cards in the quiz/test that comes after it.
In the following quiz you will find images of 12 different poker hands. You have to rate/rank how good the poker hand is in comparison with the other 12 poker hands that are shown in the quiz. '1st' is for the best poker hand and '12th' is for the worst poker hand.
To start this quiz, I would recommend that you look for the best and worst hands first and then continue from there.
Remember high cards (e.g. 10, Queens, Aces etc...) are better than low cards (e.g. 3, 4 etc...). Click on the "Check answers" button at the bottom of the quiz to check your answers.
When the answer is correct, two icons will appear next to the question. The first is an Additional Information Icon "". Click on this for extra information (e.g. what the hand is called and what you say when you have it in a game etc...) and for a translation. The second is a Pronunciation Icon "". Click on this to listen to the pronunciation of the word/phrase and to do a pronunciation speaking test.
Now that you understand this, practise by dealing yourself 5 cards and saying what poker hand you have.
