What beats four aces and a king?

A straight flush and a royal flush if you are talking about poker. Edit: The only thing that will beat this particular hand is a straight flush or a royal flush. However, if you are physically holding all of these cards, a straight flush is all that can beat this. The reason behind this is because a royal flush requires an ace with the same suit. Since you are holding all of the aces, there will not be a royal flush against you. ----- In some poker-playing groups, when playing with wild cards, you could potentially have five of a kind, which even beats a straight flush. And of course a royal flush is just one particular straight flush (with ace on top instead of a lower card on top); it would also be beaten by five of a kind.

What is the unbeatable hand you can get in Texas holdem?

The highest hand that can be acheived in poker is a Straight flush, the highest of the striaght flushes is a royal flush, (10, J, Q, K, A) of ther sam suit, this beats all other hands, flushes and the like. However in Texas, when the flop, turn, and the river, (3rd, 4th, and 5th street) are revealed, a player can have the 'nuts' of the hand, this is a hand that cannot be beaten by any other hand, no matter what cards anyone may have. For example, if 2 people are playing a game of no-limit hold em' and Player A gets dealt A(C), 9(C) and Player B gets dealt 7(H), 6(S) If the hand comes out 4(C), Q(C), 7(C), 5(D), 3(H) then player a will win with an Ace high flush, now in this instance, it does not matter wehat player b has, he could have been dealt two aces, or even had a 6, and made the straight. In this scenarion player A is extremely lucky as he will know that he has the 'nuts' of the hand and nomatter what happens he will win. Hope this helps
