re: Poker & Poker Question.?
The order of the suits is reverse-alphabetical: so highest to lowest it's spades, hearts, diamonds then clubs.
Thing is though, the only
* time you use it in standard poker games
is determining who has to pay the bring-in during stud games. If you're playing regular seven card stud, one player is showing 2h as their up card and one player is showing 2c, the player with the 2c pays the bring-in because clubs are lower than spades.
The reverse works for razz. If the highest up card is a queen, one player is showing Qs and one player is showing Qd then the one with Qs brings in because they've got the higher card.
Suits don't determine winners at showdown in stud though. If two players manage to make royal flushes then they chop the pot - it only affects the bring-in.
* Possible exception: some live tournaments might also use high card by suit as a tie breaker for things like determining who gets the odd chip during a colour up.
