Strategy For Winning At Jokers Wild Poker
If the hand you’re dealt contains the joker:
Keep all hands that are three-of-a-kind or higher, except hold four cards to the royal flush, even if it means discarding a paying hand of lower value.
(Always remember that the joker is part of the combination you’re looking for, for example two sevens and the joker equals three-of-a-kind).
Keep any four-card straight flush and a four-card flush if it includes K, A or both.
Keep three cards to a royal flush
Keep a paying pair of high cards (King, Joker or Ace, Joker).
Keep any three cards to a straight flush.
Keep any four-card flush without King or Ace.
Keep consecutive four-card straights
If not dealt any of the above, keep the Joker only.
If you’re dealt a hand without the Joker:
Keep all paying hands, except hold a four-card royal flush.
Keep any four cards to a straight flush and any three cards to a royal flush.
Keep four cards to any flush.
Keep any pair of 2’s to Queens.
Keep any three cards to a straight flush.
Keep any four-card consecutive straight.
Keep two cards to a royal flush if one of the cards is a Ace or King.
Keep unsuited King and Ace.
Keep King or Ace alone.
Keep two suited royal flush cards lower than King or Ace.
If you’re not dealt any of the above, draw five new cards.
How Poker Hands Are Ranked
(Or How To Figure Out Who Wins A Poker Hand)
Below is a table that ranks poker hands from the top hand, that always wins, to the
lowest hand that can win.
The cards themselves are ranked according to the value of the number on the card or the value
of the face. The ranking, from highest to lowest, goes as such: Ace (A), King (K), Queen
(Q), Jack (J), 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. The ace can also be used to complete a low straight;
A, 2, 3, 4, 5. As well as numbers and faces there are 4 different types of suits which are
used to determine the value of a poker hand. These are: Spades, Clubs, Diamonds and
Hearts. The color suit of Hearts and Diamonds is red. The color suit of Spades and Clubs is black.

Tie Hands - Who Wins?
If two hands are tied in rank, the following rules apply:
1) If two players both have straight flushes, flushes,
or straights, the highest card that is part of the hand determines the
winning hand. If the highest card still results in a tie then the next
highest card will determine the winner. And so on...
2) If both players have a full house, then the
highest 3 of a kind will determine the winner.
3) If both players have three of a kind the highest ranking three of a
kind will be determined the winner.
4) The highest-ranking pair
in the hand will decide two hands with two pair. If this still
results in a tie then the remaining pairs will be compared and the
highest-ranking pair will then decide the winner.
5) If both players have a single pair then the
highest-ranking pair will win. If this is also a tie then next
highest-ranking single card will determine the winner. If this
still results in a tie then the next highest single ranking card
will determine the winner.
6) Two hands with no pairs,
flushes, or straights are compared and the card with the highest
ranking single card will be determined the winner. If this still yields
no winner then the next highest card will be determined the winner. And
