In some forms of poker it is fairly common for two or more players to
end up with the same best hand. In that case, the players with equal
hands split the pot equally between them. Remember that only the best
five cards of a player's hand are considered in the showdown. If the
best five cards yield a tie, you do not use additional cards to break
the tie. Also, you don't look at the suits to break a tie. It's simply a
tie. Here are some examples:
* In Holdem, one player has [Ah Jc] and another player has [As Jd].
The final board is Ad Ts 8s 4h 2d. Both players have a pair of aces with
J-T-8 kickers. They split the pot.
* In Holdem, one player has [Ah Jc] and another player has [As 2d].
The final board is Ad Kc Ts Th 2c. Both players have two pair, aces and
tens, with a king kicker. They split the pot.
* In Holdem, one player has [Ah Ac], a second player has [8s 7s],
and a third player has [5s 4h]. The final board is Th 9h 8d 7d 6c. All
three players have a straight, ten high. This is called "playing the
board". They split the pot three ways.
* In Omaha high/low split, one player has [Ac 3d Th Td] and another
player has [As 3s 4c 5d]. The final board is 2c 4d 8s Ts Jc. Remember
that in Omaha, each player must play exactly two cards from his hand and
three from the board, but can use a different two cards for the high and
low halves of the pot. For the high half of the pot, the first player
plays [Th Td] for three of a kind, tens, with J-8 kickers, while the
second player plays [As 4c] for a pair of fours, A-J-T kickers. The
first player wins all of the high half of the pot. For the low half of
the pot, the first player plays [Ac 3d] for an 8-4-3-2-A low, while the
second player plays [As 3s] for an 8-4-3-2-A low. They have the same
hand for low, so they split the low half of the pot. All told, the first
player wins three quarters of the pot and the second player wins one
* In Seven-card Stud, one player has [Ac Ad Tc Td Js 8s 4s] and
another player has [As Ah Ts Th 5s 5h Jd]. Both players have two pair,
aces and tens, with a jack kicker. You don't consider the sixth or
seventh cards. You can see this is pretty unusual for stud and happens
mostly with straights.
