Hi guys,
was playing ytd and came across 2 controversial hands.

first case

i was dealt with [Qh] [Js]
opponent [Qs] [5h]

the flop was [Qc] [6s] [Qd]
the the turn[6c]
river [5s]

so both of us had queen 6 full house, is it a split pot?
or do we compare all our cards?
i believe its just best 5 right? the player insisted that he had the 5 pair and thus i lost


next case

my hand [Ks] [2s]
opponent [Kh] [3c]

the flop was [Kc] [3s] [Kd]
turn [2s]
river [7h]

so both us had full house
my case king 2 full house
his king 3 full house

do we compare the inside pair we have? or isit a split pot again?
i went all in in both hands and lost.

find it hard to take if i lost due to the person's argument

Case 1 - Split pot. Both players Q full 6.
Case 2 - your Kings full 2 lost to Kings full 3

Thanks for the quick reply uncle bob.
i agree with the first case, it shld have been a split pot. but the 2nd case, ppl discuss and said full house they dont compare the inside pair if both have the same trio.

another doubt,

say i have A pair and 3 pair, opponent has K Pair and Q pair. and the same card for the last. which hand wins? split too?
these are some grey areas in my game, still learning

Hi for your question, you compare everything in the best 5 except SUIT.

SO for house, compare the trips, and the pair (in your case 2 Kings full of 3s win)
for quads also compare the last card. (but if say Four of a kind Aces + K spade vs four of a kind Aces + K diamond = split pot) SUIT do not come into play.

for 2 pairs, you compare the higher pair if both players have different pairs. (e.g. AA33x vs KKQQx AA33x wins)

if both have the same high pairs, you compare the 2nd pair (AA33x vs AA22x = AA33x wins)
if both pairs same, compare the kicker (last card) - AA33K vs AA33Q = AA33K wins

okay, that makes things clearer.
if the community is 10, J, Q, K and 2.
Both players got an A, one spade, one diamond. split pot right?

Hi kingace bro, sorry for hi-jacking, am new to this forum. have got a related question so i thought dont waste topic space.

if i my best 5 cards are say, a set of K with a 4 and 6, my opponent has a set of K with a 4 and 5, do i win the pot?

some of my friends say compare only ONE (the next best) kicker, which would make it a split.

Set = 2 in pocket / on hand , 1 on board / community cards

like u hold KK , flop KAQ , you have Set of Kings

Trips = 1 on hand / 2 on board

like you hold AK , flop KK2 , you have trip K , Ace kicker
another guy with K9 , then turn T , river 2 , will lose to you
your hand : KKK A T
His hand : KKK T 9
You win

lets say you have K4 , he has K9
Flop : KK5
turn : 8
River : 2
Your hand : KKK 8 5
His hand : KKK 9 8
he wins

lets say you have K4 , he has K9
Flop : KK5
turn : Q
River : J
Your hand : KKK Q J
His hand : KKK Q J
Split pot

Summary : If your kicker is larger then the board and his trip + kicker , you win
if board's kicker is larger then both of yours , split pot.
if your kicker is smaller then both the board , and his kicker , then he wins

the one with the A and a 3 will have Q K A 2 3 straight to the 3 ... :mrgreen: kidding

split pot the suit doesn't matter as both have TJQKA (straight to ace)

Set tends to be more powerful as only one person can have it
Trips is slightly weaker as only 2 people can have it
(the only one that will pay you off is the other trip with much lower kicker on the flop. vs a set where like on a flop AK8 , you have pocket 8s ( set of 8s )

more people will probably call you down *those with Ace pair , those with King pair , high kicker

Thanks for clearing the doubts.
A, 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 straight is smaller than 2,3,4,5,6 straight right?
