Definition of Quads






What are "quads" in the game of poker? What is the definition of the term "Quads"?

"Quads" simply means four of a kind.

Let's give you a couple of examples here to illustrate the usage of the term.

Definition of Quads - Poker DictionaryExample 1:

You are dealt Ad-Ah on the button in a MTT. Action is folded to you. You raise, the small blind folds and the big blind calls.

The flop comes Ac-As-6s, giving you Quads. The action goes Check-Bet-Call all the way to the river. The big blind turns over a small pocket pair, while you flip over your Aces.

"Quad Aces" you say as you scoop the pot.

Example 2:

You are in the big blind. Action folds around to the button, who puts in a standard pre-flop raise. The small blind folds. You look down at Ks-Qd and call.

The flop comes Kh-Kd-Kc, giving you Quad Kings. You check, the button bets, you raise, the button re-raises, you push and the button snap calls. The button turns over pocket Aces, while you turn over your Ks-Qd. "Quads", you say. The board runs out 6d-6c, and you scoop the large pot.

--

"Quads", or four of a kind, is the third best type of hand in poker. Here are the top three types of hands:

1. Royal Flush

2. Straight Flush

3. Four of a Kind, or "quads".

Let's give you an example of a hand where Quads would actually lose.

The board reads Ac-Ad-Kd-Qd-Jd. You hold As-As, while your opponent holds 10d-8c.

In this case, your Quad Aces would be beaten by your opponent's royal flush.

Here is a great example of when Quads won't win you the hand:
