  • Hand Ranking - help needed.

    Player one holds K ♣ 4 ♣ . Player two holds 7 ♣ 6 ♣. The board is :

    A♣ 8♣ 2♣ Q♥ 9♥

    Who wins ? There are two flushes on the board.

    The best flush wins. As with any poker hand, the winner is the one with the best 5-card hand. On that board, makes (the nuts, with a flush ace-king high) makes (a worse flush, Ace-eight high).

      Hi Shonessy,

      In Texas Hold'em it's the best five-card hand that always wins so you must count all five cards. In the case where both players have a flush and the highest ranked card is on the board you go to the next highest ranked card. So in this case the highest card being the Ace is on the board, the next highest is the King which player one is holding so player one wins the pot.

      I hope this explains it, but if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
