    Hi all,

    Is it legal to have 5 of a kind in a poker game with wild cards? Or can you only have 4 of a kind regardless of wild cards?

    I'm talking about real poker games like 5 card draw, not this Texas Hold 'em bull.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Some might debate you as to whether having wild cards negates the moniker of real poker game.
    But yes 5 of a kind beats a Royal Flush, unless all parties agree it doesn't prior to commencement of play: How to Rank Poker Hands - What hand is higher?

    Thanks. I knew there would be a dig about wild cards.
