  • Surprised by the mechanics of card comparison

    I wont spoil! But after watching, explain me why it happened this way instead of vice versa? I was pleasantly shocked by the results!

      Dont even ask if you dont understand anything.

      Go talk with pros.. Im asking why i win with 555 vs AAA. And why i won big pot. And i now really will wait for someone who can nicely explain me why rather than some half-full sentence answer.

          Your 5-card hand is 555AA
          Villain's 5-card hand is AAAKJ

          Full house beats trips.

            I watched this video like 5times and didnt noticed it was full house. I was too much involved in how set won vs another set.

            Not sure how i managed to overlook that!

            Why did that guy STILL won 9k chips?

              He started with a bigger chip stack, so there was a side pot. He won some chips against the other player that was also in the pot.

                I guess it is one of those days that whenever I try and be helpful (ie. request clarification on what a problem is) people will still throw it back in my face. All I deserve I'm sure.

                  My apologies i was harsh! I watched my video analyzing myself and the other guy, and i swear i never saw i had a fullhouse untill that post in this forum! I was so involved by seeing set vs set..

                    Just so you know, a set isn't the same thing as trips. A set is when a pocket pair + 1 community card make 3 of a kind. Trips is when 1 pocket card finds 2 mates on the board.

                        yup. and a set usually trumps trips. (as seen in this hand)
