Table of content:
In the world of poker, players set a combination of five playing cards, according to the rules of the game, which are known as hands. There are ten different kinds of hands and each hand has a different rank. The hands follow the order: Royal flush, Straight flush, Four of a kind, Full house, flush, Straight, Three of a kind, Two pair, One pair and High card. Each hand is used according to its strength which is determined by the type of cards that the hand holds.
Here, we will discuss the third-best ranked hand - Full house or Full house boat.

A full house boat or a full boat is a five card hand consisting of three cards of the same rank and other two cards of the same rank. It is generally known as a “poker boat” or full hand. This hand is obviously a strong hand because there is only one hand which can beat a full house boat - pocket kings. A player holding a poker boat will always be ahead in the game unless there is someone who decides to get very sneaky with a pair of kings. Here, it is more probable that a player holds a king which means that you can take away a large pot. Many of the naïve players face a very hard time while getting rid of kings in this situation.
The rank of a poker boat is decided by the three of a kind it contains. For example, a K-K-K-2-2 will be read as “Kings full of deuces” and will be ranked higher than a Q-Q-Q-A-A (Queens full of Aces). In poker, a full house boat is ranked higher than a flush and lower than four of a kind. It is a difficult and powerful hand to make which makes you win frequently.
Poker boat is considered as a stronger hand by the beginners than actually it is. It can be a strong hand but not as strong as a royal flush, straight flush and a four of a kind. A full house boat is rarely used on the flop, instead players use three of a kind or a two pair more often. A full boat is beneficial as it comes in many different combinations so if you are a slow player, you can sneak under the radar.
If you want to use a full house boat in poker, you should first see how many players are in the game and then analyze their hands. Poker boat might be a strong hand but it should be used particularly when there are high value cards on the flop or turn. It must be used very cautiously, as in most of the cases where a boat loses, that won’t be to a straight flush or a four of a kind but to another boat.
