A two pairs hand is a poker hand consisting of two cards of the same rank and another two cards with the same rank (but of a different rank from the first two cards). The remaining card is an unmatched card.

Two pairs ranks above one pair and below three-of-a-kind

Ranking Two Pair Hands

Competing two-pairs poker hands are ranked by their higher ranking pairs. If both hands have the same higher ranking pairs, then the lower ranking pairs are compared. If both the lower ranking pairs are also similarly ranked, then the hand with the highest ranking unmatched card (kicker) wins.
