The high card hands are depicted by one or two highest cards in hands. If two plus players have high card hands, then the winner is decided on the basis of the second-highest card.

A Single Pair

Two cards should be of the same rank. Pair of Ace is considered as the highest pair. But, if there are 2 to 3 players having same pair, then the winner is decided on the basis of the highest of three remaining cards.

Two Pair

A poker hand that contains two cards with same rank, and two cards with other rank is Two Pair Poker hand. If two or more players are having the same two pair, then the fifth card decides the winner.
