I'm working on a card drafting game that will utilize the classic poker hand hierarchy:

Pair

Three of a Kind

Straight

Flush

Full House

Four of a Kind

Straight Flush

and i'm trying to work out if the order of importance should stay the same. Does anyone know how Drafting cards instead of getting a random hand will affect how hard it is for someone to make these classic groupings?

any help will be much appreciated, Thanks!

Sorry for not giving enough information, the type of drafting the game will employ is where everyone has a hand of cards that all have actions on them, everyone chooses a card from their hand of 10 action cards, plays it simultaneously and then pass their hand to the player on their left. now they have a hand of 9 action cards and play continues in the same way till all players have played 10 cards.

Where my question comes into play is that each of these cards will also have a number (1-10) and suit. each play their tableau grows, and as an added tactical play they can match their current played card with previous played cards to make a poker hand. So for exaple if they were going to use action A. and in their hand they have 3 Action A. Cards they would want to play the one with say a 3 of clubs on it, because they have already played two other actions with the 3 of hearts and spades. this would give them on this play a Three of a kind which might grant them a special power or bonus points.

So imagine the game was a normal deck of cards A-10. you draft from a hand an action that is linked to a suit. So you select a card that is Clubs so you can hurt your opponent for 2 points of damage, or you Pick a Heart so you can heal yourself for 2, Et al... So your card selection grants you an action, and can also be added into your already made tableau for an added bonus. the added bonus of a pair is obviously going to be pretty weak as it is remarkably easy to get a pair, and you could also do fun things with Straights where you could constantly be adding one more either up or down to keep the chain going (however you can't have a straight till turn 5, where as you could potentially get 4 of a kind on turn 4...)

So what i'm trying to figure out are the statistics of having a hand of 10 cards that you get to draw from, is making say, a straight flush, easier than getting 4 of a kind? I know that the odds will be wildly different based on how many cards you have in hand, and how many options you have, i'm just trying to figure out if the "pay out" for each should stay in the same order, and how much it should be worth... so a pair might be worth 1 point, three of a kind might be worth 2, four of a kind might be 4 etc...

Another wrinkle in the odds is that this is all open information, so you getting 4 of a kind might be MUCH harder because someone only has to take 1 of the available 7's to keep you from getting all 4...

I know this is kind of nebulous so forgive me if it still doesn't make sense. and thank you very much for taking your time to respond and try to help!
