English term or phrase: Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Full House
This is a question for poker players:
I'm not sure whether or not these terms can be translated; same question for "Full house", Straight". Thanks for any help!

One tiny detail was wrong, see below.


Explanation:
A "straight flush" is a "Straße in einer Farbe" and a "royal (straight) flush" is a Straße in einer Farbe made up of 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace. Any lower Straße in einer Farbe is "just" a straight flush.

Reference: with my father and I together, over 100 years of poker playing experience.
