you need to change the numbers to allow 2,3,4 to be used.

Nice. Can I suggest you allow "Royal Flush" as an alternate to Straight Flush? It is, I now realize, just a subset, but as a poker newbie it's frustrating when you've heard its the most difficult hand and then find it's not even listed here. Also, do you have alternatives for full house, such as 3 of a kind + one pair, with variations?

Two other suggestions: Go for a larger font on the page, say 12 or 14 point. It's not a long list & there's room. And set the colors to Black (000000) on Red (FF0000) for the hints, Red on pure white (FFFFFF) for the answers, to reflect the colors of cards.

Sporcle has a version of this quiz already, you don't have to name them in order though.

I've gone ahead with royal flush. I like your stylistic suggestions too. I'll go ahead with some full house alternatives, although I'm not sure I've ever heard it called "3 of a kind with a pair" although obviously that is what it is.

"One pair" should work for "pair".

I got them all right....just like everyone else!:)

There's already a quiz for this. Just not ranking them. I feel like the existing quiz could be modified.

I made a comment on that quiz asking them to require the ordering. I don't think I was the only one. That was many months ago. So I did this one. Wouldn't have been made otherwise.
Comment below threshold:

I think adding royal flush as a separate category would be a huge mistake. I also think hand ranking charts that include high card are stupid. High card is just the absence of a hand.

its called a straight flush so should not allow royal flush, thats just a poker term not a hand, its called a full house, u shouldnt allow anything else, and yes u should keep high card because it is a hand, eurythmech u are silly!

"I also think hand ranking charts that include high card are stupid. High card is just the absence of a hand." But it's relevant when no player in the hand has even a pair, and thus high card wins the hand.

@dodsface: How exactly is a royal flush not a hand? Not surprisingly, rockgolf is perfectly right, it is a subset and is problematic in this quiz, although I think how it is now is the best compromise. I suggest specifying that you are including only the hands that can be made without wild cards as so many variations of poker include them (not good variations, but they exist nontheless), and I am actually somewhat surprised that no has complained about the absence of 5 of a kind yet.

Two pairs should be accepted for two pair. :
