In the basic rule of Teen Patti, we’ve mentioned some general concepts and useful Teen Patti tips that can help you learn faster at the beginning. In this part, we’ll explain the key to winning a teen patt game, which will be certainly the ranking of hands.
Teen Patti Hands
One of the most important parts is knowing the ranking teen patti hands, from best to worst:
- Three-of-a-kind or trio/trial: This hand has three cards of the same value. Among trios, three Aces are the highest and three 2s are the lowest.
- Straight flush or pure sequence: A sequence or straight is a consecutive set of numbers. When three consecutive cards are from the same suit, they make a straight flush or pure sequence. Here’s the order of sequences from the highest value to the lowest—A-K-Q, K-Q-J, Q-J-10, and so on, till 4-3-2.
Note: K-A-2 is called a wraparound. It is NOT a valid straight flush. Often 2-3-4 of the same suit is also considered a straight flush higher than A-K-Q. The reason for this is defined in the probability section of this article.
- Straight or 3 patti sequence: A sequence is a set of consecutive cards that are not from the same suit. The order of sequences for a straight is the same as a straight flush, and K-A-2 is not a valid straight.
- Flush or colour: This hand has all three cards from the same suit. Among two flush hands, the one with the highest cards wins. If card values are the same for both players, then the highest suit wins. Here’s the order of suits for teen patti from best to worst: Spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs.
- Pair or double: A hand with two cards of the same rank is called a Pair. The pair with the higher value wins. A-A is the highest and 2-2 is the lowest, irrespective of the third card’s value.
- No pair or high card: In hands with none of the above features, the highest cards are compared. When the highest card value is the same, then the second-highest cards are compared, and so on.
Here’s a quick teen patti example list for each type of hand, making it easier to learn :
