Full House Meaning – Very Strong Poker Hand Made of Trips and One Pair
A full house is any hand consisting of a three-of-a-kind and a two-of-a-kind. It’s the fourth-strongest hand in poker, ranking below a four-of-a-kind hand and above a flush.
In case multiple players have a full house, the player with the highest valued three-of-a-kind hand wins the pot.
For example, let’s say you’re dealt pocket Kings, and your opponent gets dealt a K, Q hand. After the river, the community board reads K, Q, Q, 9, 8.
While both of you have made a full house hand, you win the pot as you have the higher valued three-of-a-kind combination.
