• Player A: 9♠ A♦ (Pair of 9's)
  • Player B: 5♥ 5♣ (Trip 5's)
  • Player C: J♠ K♣

Common Cards: 9♦ 2♣ Q♥ 5♦ 4♦

  • Player B was all in with the smallest amount
  • Player A was in with more money (bet fighting with Player C)

The software split the pot and I don't see why.

  • B got 45
  • A got 78

Pot was 123

To me it seems like Trip 5s should have gotten it all...

    Because there was betting that happened after player B went ALL IN, the later betting formed a "side pot" that was then divided between Players A and C with all of the winnings going to Player A.

    If you start the hand with $10, you can only win up to $10 from each of the other players. Anything in the pot above that is fought over by those with more money. Sep 24, 2020 at 19:11
