We were playing texas hold'em and the cards on the table ended with 3 jacks and a couple of 4's.

On my hand was a pair of six. My opponent had a 4 and an 8. The other 2 folded

My opponent said that I had no cards connected on the table so that he should've won.

Thus, I wanted to ask the experts here who truly should've won.

    You won your hand was jjj66, your opponent hand is jjj44.

Board: J J J 4 4

Player 1: 6 6

Player 2: 4 8

Player 1's best hand is J J J 6 6 (Full house, Jacks full of Sixes)

Player 2's best hand is J J J 4 4 (Full house, Jacks full of Fours)

Therefore, Player 1 wins.

  • Thanks for that mate. I prolly should've done more research but didn't know exactly what to type on the search bar so I apologize for that. Really appreciate what you did though.
