What poker hand beats a straight?
Is a straight hand unbeatable? If not, then what poker hand beats a straight?
Well, a straight flush is virtually unbeatable. You are very lucky if you are able to put together this hand. However, there is still a hand that can beat this and it is the royal flush as illustrated in the article below:
You can come up with a royal flush by putting together the 10, J, Q, K and A of the exact same suit. However, it is very unlikely that your opponents will let you form this hand. Needless to say, it is rare to come up with a royal flush.
A straight flush can also be beaten by another straight flush with higher ranking cards. For example, your opponent has 9-8-7-6-5. To beat that hand, you have to have at least 10-9-8-7-6.
