So I was watching this song by Adam Levin where Adam had 2K's and SZA had 2A's. And the table had 5A's, I thought in this case it should be a tie and they both will split equally. But it seems from the video(What lover's do at 2:31) like Levin lost. How is it possible?

So firstly it's a music video, and whatever they're doing isn't poker. However if somehow you're playing some game with a joker wildcard, poker is a 5 card game, 5 aces would win. Both players have 5 aces, CHOP IT UP!

  • Then the couple ends up at a card game, which I assume is poker and by the looks of it, played with several packs of cards. 5 aces are already on the table and SZA has two more aces with her. That is a brain-flush! Source : justrandomthings.com/2017/09/28/… Also which poker game is played with more than 1 deck? Commented May 27, 2021 at 5:39
  • Any game using two decks is not poker. Poker as we know it, hand rankings, etc are all based on a single deck. I don't know of any poker games that use two decks. I've dealt and heard of jokers added for wild cards, and short deck but not multiple decks.

  • TBH it's just creative license in the song. The director probably just figured that looked like a bad beat or something cool to put in to convey the message they wanted to.
