First: as amigal said, Alice wins. I just want to say something about the naming convention of the hands. Alice and Bob do not have a "flush to 10"; that would imply that the cards are consecutive and that would be a straight flush. Alice's and Bob's hand - out of context - would be called a "Ten-high flush". As amigal said, if the highest card of a flush ...

Aces may indeed be used as low in a straight in holdem. A2345 is the lowest possible straight, also sometimes called a "wheel." In any other context, aces will be ranked higher than other cards.

There isn't a special ranking rule for flushes. The winning hand is always the best five cards out of the seven available. The two hole cards plus the five community cards. My guess is that player 1 just didn't want to lose. So he made up this rule to get what he wants. Again, this is just an educated guess. I've been playing poker for years and I've never ...

Alice wins because she has higher flush. the rule is that if both player has the same highest card, the second higher card is checked. if the second highest card is the same for both players, the third highest card is checked and so on. in your case, the 4 highest cards are the same for both players. Alice has the highest fifth card so she wins.

Yes. You must use exactly two cards from your hand to make your best 5-card poker hand, so if there were three 9's on the board your best hand would use the 9 and the highest ranked other card from your hand. For example, if you held KQ97 and the board were 999AJ, your best hand would use the 9 and K, for a best hand of 9999K. Of course, in this case the ...

In a full house, 888xx beats 777xx. That is, the higher set beats the lower without concern for what the pair is. The cards in the pair are only important if both players have the same set, such as player A's pocket being 8 2 and player B's pocket being 8 7. This would give player A 88822, and B 88877.

Both players have two pairs, as there is a pair of Kings on the board. Inclinations was ahead until the river paired the board. Rubina's best five card hand is: K♥K♠6⋄6♣T⋄ Which beats Inclinations best five card hand: K♥K♠6♥6♣5⋄ The two pairs are equal in rank, so the fifth card acts ...

Each player in a basic game of poker is given five cards to make their hand. There are variants to the game where players receive more than five cards and players have community cards. However it is the best five cards of a player's hand that make their hand. If the best five cards you have are not better than another player's best five cards you lose the ...

In the example you give both players have 1 pair. Poker is the best 5 card hand. Your best hand would be 2,2,A,Q,6 your opponents best hand would be 2,2,A,Q,7. Therefore his 7 would "out kick" your 6. However, if the board was 2,2,3,3,Q You both would share the best hand 2,2,3,3,A and the pot would therefore be split

The king on the river gave your opponent two pair, kings and nines. It also changed your best hand, giving you two pair, kings and nines. Your opponent had a queen kicker, which plays on this board and is the sole difference between your hand and your opponent's. In hold-em, the best hand is determined by the best 5-card combination of cards for each player ...

So just to offer you a small bit of clarity on outs, you absolutely do not have a 35% chance of winning the hand! You have a 35% chance of improving your hand. This is an important distinction to remember because; You may already be ahead and thus don't need to improve, so the reality of this is you have any card that doesn't make your opponent get ahead of ...

Yes this is a split, since you always count the 5 best cards out of board cards + hand cards. you would have a street from board and your other 2 cards don't care if they don't help to upgrade that street. IF you had a king, you would have won here.

You can only lose the low hand if you get counterfeit (when a low card hits the board that also pairs one of your low cards), so that you don't hold the nut low on the river anymore. If there is a low hand possible, and no A or 2 on the board, you always have the nut low. At worst, you will split the low pot if someone else also has a A2XX hand. With that ...

He has TTT66, you have 666KK. A full house tens full of sixes (TTT66) beats sixes full of kings (666KK) in all variants of poker, not just PLO. This is because the tens are higher than the sixes, in this case.

This is indeed a split pot. Only the best five card hand each player can make matters at showdown, at least in Texas Hold 'em. The other two cards are irrelevant, whether they make an additional pair or extend the length of a straight. When the board makes something better than what you're holding, it's called getting counterfeited.

Hold'em Poker means having the 5 best cards available, your hand + board, and her hand + board. You both made a straight, doesn't matter what u have left over. This setup is a split pot, i guess u mixed something up. She probably had 10 and Ace or Ace Queen or Ace King for a Full House, which beats a straight.

It's a tie. Win/loss is always dependent on 5 cards. The only times differences in hand cards matter is when determining who gets the extra chip(s) in a split pot. (Though some casinos go by position instead of hand cards for this.)

Example: You have A2, villain has A3. Board is: 24567. That gives you a low: A2456 Gives villain low: A2345 Basically, whenever one of your cards pairs, you might be in danger.

your hand is: pair of Tens + Ace kicker 1 + Queen kicker 2 opponent hand: pair of Tens + Ace kicker 1 + King kicker 2 So your opponent wins. I really don't want to be rude, but please google it next time, I'm sure you would've found the answer.

Under the rules, a player who properly shows his hand is entitled to the pot if the hand wins, regardless of his actions or those of others. This is the "cards speak" rule. Also, the dealer and other players at the table are entitled--and indeed expected--to assist the dealer in assuring that the pot is awarded correctly. Whether or not a player can be ...

You've been counterfeited on the river. Villain's best hand is: Q♥ Q♠ 6♥ 6♣ J⋄ (two pair, Queens and Sixes, Jack kicker) Your best hand is: Q♥ Q♠ 6♥ 6♣ 8♥ (two pair, Queens and Sixes, Eight kicker) Therefore, your pair of fives is irrelevant as it doesn't form part of your best hand, ...

Generally A9 wants to check a flop like 844 rainbow, because you are likely ahead of you opponent's range, but you don't want o play a massive pot. If you bet you can get bluff raised easily and you would have to fold. Basically, betting in this spot will cause you to be c-betting too much an dwill allow your opponent to outplay you. He does bet, however ...

I suspect he had KH-QX or KH-JX or KH-TX. I don't think it makes much sense for him to raise preflop with 3H 4H or 5H 6H. And, he would play KH-8X or less raising preflop. And, since he didn't win the had, he didn't pair the board nor have a pocket pair.

Wow, that was a great to superstar fold. As it turns out you made the right play. When I am playing well I would have a hard time convincing myself to believe what I see and make that fold, when I am off my game, I would almost always make that call. It is hard to describe all the nuances of a hand and a player. I am speculating that a lot more, like the ...

I don't know what a wheel of straight means, but not having a full straight of 5 cards in a row even 4 cards is worth nothing besides high Card. Your value was High Card A (which is on board already) A straight means 5 Cards in a row, so you missed a 8 or a K. He wins with pair of AA , that's correct. A wheel or is the name for the low straight ( A-2-...

***strong text***Yes, the application of the five highest card rule means that Alice wins. Her highest five cards are 10, 9, 8, 7, 5 of hearts (no straight flush). Bob's is 10, 9, 8, 7, 4 of hearts. The "tailing" four loses to Alice's 5. Counterexample: The board is K, 10, 9, 8, 7 of hearts. Then Alice's and Bob's five highest cards are K, 10, 9, 8, 7. ...

Alright so here is a very good example that I bet most of you would miss lets say this is the scenario. there are two people left in the hand (person L and person X) Person L has a K and a 5 Person X has pocket Q's The board is A,A,A,A,2 Now most people would say obviously person X wins right? S/He has the four of a kind aces plus his pocket queens; ...

In this scenario, the board plays for everyone, that is, if each person separately took their hole cards and combined them with the board, then the best 5-card hand that each person could make is 2 pair (9's and 2's) with a queen kicker. Therefore, the pot is split 3 ways.

You hand is always the best five card hand you can make, so in this case: Your hand is : Pair of 10's with an Ace, Queen, and 4 Their hand is: Pair of 10's with an Ace, King , and 4 The King beats the Queen, so their hand is best; they win the pot. The 4 is also relevant since it is part of the best 5 card hand you can make. A tie occurs only if your best ...
