Explanation of Let it Ride hand rankings
There are nine types of hands in all that you could with at the
tables, and one that you will always lose with which is a pair of
cards lower than 10.
The lowest hand you can play is a pair.

with three other cards that don't match. Say you have a hand with
Q, Q, K, 3, and 4. That would mean you have a pair of queens. With
pairs, they ranked by their value, highest being aces and lowest
being twos, but in Let it Ride; the minimum would be a pair of tens.
The next highest hand is Two Pair. Two pair is
having two sets of equal value cards and a fifth without a match,
such as K, K, J, J, 2.
Next step above Two Pair is Three of a Kind, which
is three matching cards in your hand with two non-matching cards.

of five cards of different suits in numerical order. For example,
5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 of different suits is read as a straight, if an
