Such a hand may contain either 3 pairs plus a singleton, or two pairs plus 3 remaining cards of distinct ranks. So there are choices which give a flush. For any such set of ranks, each card may be any of 4 cards except we must remove those which correspond to flushes. Each of the remaining 5 cards can be chosen in any of 4 ways. There are ways to choose the 2 ranks, 4 ways to choose each of the triples, and 44 ways to choose the singleton. The third way to get a full house is for the 7-card hand to contain a triple, a pair and 2 singletons of distinct ranks. We must exclude sets of ranks of the form of which there are 9. The set of ranks must have the form and there are 10 such sets. Now 6 of the ways of getting the 2 pairs have the same suits represented for the 2 pairs, 24 of them have exactly 1 suit in common between the 2 pairs, and 6 of them have no suit in common between the 2 pairs. There are 4 ways to choose all of them in the same suit. Altogether we obtain. There are 6 choices for each of the pairs giving us 36 ways to choose the 2 pairs. Hence, there are straights of this form. The types of 5-card poker hands in decreasing rank are straight flush 4-of-a-kind full house flush straight 3-of-a-kind two pairs a pair high card The total number of 7-card poker hands is. We want to remove the sets of ranks which include 5 consecutive ranks that is, we are removing straight possibilities. There are 6 choices for which rank will have a pair and there are 6 choices for a pair of that rank. Adding the numbers of flushes of the 3 types produces 4,, flushes. People frequently encounter difficulty in counting 7-card hands because a given set of 7 cards may contain several different types of 5-card hands. We also can have a set of 5 distinct ranks producing a straight which means the corresponding 7-card hand must contain either 2 pairs or 3-of-a-kind as well. A hand which is a 3-of-a-kind hand must consist of 5 distinct ranks. When the largest card in the straight flush is an ace, then the 2 other cards may be any 2 of the 47 remaining cards. One way of obtaining a full house is for the 6-card hand to contain 2 sets of triples and a singleton. There are 5 ways to choose 4 cards to be in the same suit, 2 choices for that suit and 3 choices for the suit of the remaining card. We have to break down these 36 ways of getting 2 pairs because different suit patterns for the pairs allow different possibilities for flushes upon choosing the remaining 3 cards. We have to ensure we do not count any flushes. This means duplicate counting can be troublesome as can omission of certain hands. The way hands are ranked is to choose the highest ranked 5-card hand contained amongst the 7 cards. There are 5 choices for the rank of the triple and 4 choices for the triple of the chosen rank. When x is ace or 10, then there are 7 choices for y. This produces sets with 6 consecutive ranks. To count the number of flushes, we first obtain some useful information on sets of ranks. Next we consider two pairs hands. There are 8 rank sets of the form. Now we remove flushes. The number of ways of choosing 7 distinct ranks from 13 is. Now suppose we have 6 cards in the same suit. If x is any of the other 8 possible values, then y , z are being chosen from a 6-set. If all 5 cards were chosen in the same suit, we would have a flush so we remove the 4 ways of choosing all 5 in the same suit. This produces full house of the second kind. This leaves 1, sets of 5 ranks qualifying for a 3-of-a-kind hand. One of the most popular poker games is 7-card stud. The remaining 4 cards can be assigned any of 4 suits except not all 4 can be in the same suit as the suit of one of cards of the triple. There are 5 choices for the rank of the trips, and 4 choices for trips of that rank. In addition, we cannot choose 4 of them in either suit of the pair. When x is between 2 and 9, inclusive, there are 6 choices for y. We now move to hands with 6 distinct ranks. Finally, suppose we have 5 cards in the same suit. Then there are flushes of this last type. This gives us full houses of this type. Thus, we obtain 3-of-a-kind hands. There are sets of 5 distinct ranks from which we must remove the 10 sets corresponding to straights. This gives us straight flushes in which the largest card is an ace. Note this means there must be a pair in such a hand. The remaining 2 cards can be any 2 cards from the other 3 suits so that there are choices for them. This gives us flushes with 6 suited cards. So we have straights which also contain 3-of-a-kind. There are 3 ways to get a full house and we count them separately. In total, we remove sets of ranks ending up with 1, sets of 7 ranks which do not include 5 consecutive ranks. Hence, the number of rank sets being excluded in this case is. There are choices for 5 ranks in the same suit. Thus, there are flushes having all 7 cards in the same suit. We evaluate these 2 types of hands separately.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} This enables us to pick up 6- and 7-card straight flushes. There are 13 ways to choose the rank of the triple, ways to choose the ranks of the pairs, 4 ways to choose the triple of the given rank, and 6 ways to choose the pairs of each of the given ranks. Next we suppose the hand also contains 2 pairs. The remaining card may be any of the 39 cards from the other 3 suits. We must remove the 3 choices for which all 4 cards are in the same suit as one of the cards in the 3-of-a-kind. If x is any of the other 7 possibilities, there are 5 possibilities for y. This implies there are 4-of-a-kind hands. Again there are 1, sets of 6 ranks for these cards in the same suit. There are 13 choices for the rank of the triple, 12 choices for the rank of the pair, choices for the ranks of the singletons, 4 choices for the triple, 6 choices for the pair, and 4 choices for each of the singletons. If the largest card is any of the remaining 36 possible largest cards in a straight flush, then we may choose any 2 cards other than the immediate successor card of the particular suit. If x is ace or 9, there are 6 choices for y. There are choices for the 2 ranks which will be paired. So if x is ace or 10, y can be any of 7 values; whereas, if x is any of the other 8 possible values, y can be any of 6 values. A second way of getting a full house is for the 7-card hand to contain a triple and 2 pairs. There are ways to choose 6 of them in the same suit. This gives choices with 5 in the same suit. We must remove the 10 sets of ranks producing straight flushes leaving us with 1, sets of ranks. Altogether 71 sets have been excluded leaving 1, sets of ranks for the 6 suited cards not producing a straight flush. When the 2 pairs have no suit in common, all 64 choices are allowed since a flush is impossible. For 5 of them in the same suit, there are ways to choose which 5 will be in the same suit, 4 ways to choose the suit of the 5 cards, and 3 independent choices for the suits of each of the 2 remaining cards. If x is either ace or 10, then y , z are being chosen from a 7-subset. We saw above that there are sets of 7 distinct ranks which include 5 consecutive ranks. One possible form is , where x can be any of 9 ranks. This implies there are sets of 6 distinct ranks corresponding to straights. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Abstract: We determine the number of 7-card poker hands. The remaining 2 cards cannot possibly give us a hand better than a flush so all we need do here is count flushes with 5 cards in the same suit. First we suppose the hand also contains 3-of-a-kind. In the case of the 6 ways of getting 2 pairs with the same suits, 2 of the 64 choices must be eliminated as they would produce a flush straight flush actually. In forming a 4-of-a-kind hand, there are 13 choices for the rank of the quads, 1 choice for the 4 cards of the given rank, and choices for the remaining 3 cards. We obtain full houses of the last kind. As we just saw, there are 71 choices for the set of 6 ranks. In the case of the 24 ways of getting 2 pairs with exactly 1 suit in common, only 1 of the 64 choices need be eliminated. The cards of the remaining 4 ranks each can be chosen in any of 4 ways. We then obtain straights when the 7-card hand has 7 distinct ranks. This gives us straight flushes of the second type, and 41, straight flushes altogether. We shall count straight flushes using the largest card in the straight flush. Adding the 3 numbers gives us 3,, full houses.
