Who wins in this situation, and why? Please explain. Nothing on this site answers my question!!!

enter image description here


The top hand (babr86) wins, as the best poker hand that 9♣ 5♥ can make with the board is

A♣ 9♣ 7♣ 5♣ 3♣

Whereas the K♠ 7♠ hand is playing the board:

A♣ 7♣ 5♣ 3♣ 2♣

Giving the top hand a better kicker in the second card.

Also note that the second player's 7♠ which forms a pair with the board does not factor into their final hand, as a flush is better than a pair.
