A flush beats a straight. That's why the other guy won the hand.

Here is the rankings in order!-----

Royal FlushThe best possible straight flush Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace all of the same suit.
Straight FlushCards of five consecutive ranks, all of the same suit
4 of a KindFour cards of any one rank, and any other card
Full HouseThree cards of one rank, and two cards of a second rank.
FlushFive cards of the same suit that doesn't make a straight
StraightCards of five consecutive ranks when not all five are of the same suit
Three of a KindThree cards of the same rank and two unrelated cards
Two PairTwo cards of one rank, two cards of another rank, and a fifth
One PairTwo cards of the same rank and three other unrelated cards
High CardKnown as a 'Busted Hand'. Five unrelated cards – no pair, no flush, no straight. Nothing.

Hey Doc:

I don't know if you were serious are not but yes his flush beat's your straight, here's an ex.

Flush
A flush is a poker hand such as Q♣ 10♣ 7♣ 6♣ 4♣, which contains five cards of the same suit, not in rank sequence. It ranks above a straight.

Straight
A straight is a poker hand such as Q♣ J♠ 10♠ 9♥ 8♥, which contains five cards of sequential rank, of varying suits. It ranks above three of a kind and below a flush.

A straight should be ranked higher than a flush IMO.....but that's just my 2 cents

sometimes but not a lot :D
15 Dollars tourneys hehe:)

I don't think you should be playing $15 tourneys not knowing if a straight beats a flush. Seriously, are you being serious?
lol

You should also go all in any time you have an Ace. That way you'll be properly funded when getting all of your money in with a straight against a flush. :D

He is a doctor.
He's got money to burn and he enjoys the competition.
He does need to know all the rules to have fun.

The nuts is when you hold the best possible hand that cannot be beaten

I agree (they do rank higher in a lot of other games, e.g brag). 4aces07 clearly doesn't though.

Well, that's just silly! To make a straight, you can use a run of 5 cards of any suit. A flush requires 5 cards of the same suit (as most of us know ;) ), thereby making it harder to make a flush versus a straight.
