Infinite Deck Poker Hand Rankings

With infinite decks it makes sense to add new hands. This type of poker requires a computer to play (or can be simulated, badly, by just mixing a couple hundred decks together)

There are more possibilities for pair-based hands, so those should be devalued a little. Traditional poker hand valuations are in straight order of rarity, plus card value in case of ties.

In this variant, flushes are now easier to make, so they are weaker than straights.

There are also a lot more sub-variants of pair hands.

It's also possible for people to have exactly the same hand as eachother.
