Both players have two pairs, as there is a pair of Kings on the board. Inclinations was ahead until the river paired the board. Rubina's best five card hand is: K♥K♠6⋄6♣T⋄ Which beats Inclinations best five card hand: K♥K♠6♥6♣5⋄ The two pairs are equal in rank, so the fifth card acts ...

In the example you give both players have 1 pair. Poker is the best 5 card hand. Your best hand would be 2,2,A,Q,6 your opponents best hand would be 2,2,A,Q,7. Therefore his 7 would "out kick" your 6. However, if the board was 2,2,3,3,Q You both would share the best hand 2,2,3,3,A and the pot would therefore be split

He has TTT66, you have 666KK. A full house tens full of sixes (TTT66) beats sixes full of kings (666KK) in all variants of poker, not just PLO. This is because the tens are higher than the sixes, in this case.

If both hands were face up on the table, the moment the last board card fell, the pot belonged to the player whose properly tabled hand was the best. The fact that he then turned it over and pushed his chips away is of no consequence--the game was already over, and those chips were his. If he had mucked his cards before showing them, that's different. But ...

The size of the last raise is the minimum size for the next raise. In the case you explained, player two at minimum must make it 20. That is the last raise was 8 dollars making it twelve to go, so the next minimum raise is eight more, making it 20 to go.

UTG+1 must still min raise to 200 as the blind (100) is still the bet. Again, UTG has not met the min raise so you can still bet to 200. UTG+1 must raise to 340 as the last raise was of 120 (100 to 220) UTG+1 makes a min raise from 100 to 200 (raise size=100), UTG+2 must then at least match the last raise size and make it 300. If there was an all in from ...

Your opponent is entitled to know your stack size. You have a responsibility not to deceptively stack your chips, obscure them, or otherwise interfere with your opponent's ability to judge your stack. You do not, however, have to help him count. If he asks the dealer for a count, the dealer can and should count your chips, and you may not interfere (though ...

While Lee is correct there can be some problems in this situation that could cause the player mucking the hand like that to lose the pot. The first problem is that video is not available, or the video is *so bad one cannot really figure out what the hand is. It could also be policy at a casino that they do not stop the game and run video, they feel it is ...

Assuming you mean the community cards were something like K♥K♠4♥4⋄J♣ with player 1 having say Q⋄7♥ and player 2 Q♣3♣ then its a split pot, winning hands being KK44Q.

This is a bad decision. In turn, certainly, a rap on the table should be taken as a check, but I would never automatically take a dark bet that wasn't unambiguous. If this player had a habit of making ambiguous moves like this to judge his opponent's reaction, you might have a case. But if he acted verbally, clearly, and quickly after the card came, I have ...
