One Pair

one-pair-poker-handWhen 2 cards are of the same rank and none of the rest of the cards in a hand are useful, a player has a One Pair hand.

When 2 players are in a showdown and both hold a One Pair, the higher valued pair wins. If they tie, the rest of their cards are compared in descending order of value.

EXAMPLE “My one pair of Aces was good enough to beat my opponent’s pair of Kings.”
