    You haven't actually given us enough information to answer the question unless we make some assumptions. Next time you ask, tell us what all 9 cards are (your two, his two, the five on the board). Commented Apr 3, 2015 at 19:23
  • Your pair wins, regardless if it's paired with the board, even if your friend have a pocket-pair like QQ or KK eg. using both her cards. This doesn't give value since the combination of five 5-card matters, now how much of your hole cards are you using.

1 Answer 1


Assuming you are playing Texas Hold'em. Its the best 5 card hand using ANY combination of your hole cards (Cards in your hand) and the community cards (cards on the table).

You won the hand with a pair of Aces. Pair of Aces > Pair of Queens.
