      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with 9:spade: , 9:diamond:
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.08, UTG2 calls $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, 2 folds, CO calls $0.08, 3 folds.

      River: ($2.19) 9:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.19

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a full-house, nines full of sixes (9s 9d)
      UTG2 shows (Qs Qd)

      Hero wins with a full-house, nines full of sixes (9s 9d)

      What I really don't understand is how the river changed it so that my full house is better? I would say that QQ666 is stronger.. I guess I am missing something in basic rulers

      Apart from the hand being played superwell , the showdown is consisted of the five best cards you can produce;

      Here you have nines full of 6s while your opponent has sixes full of Queens

      Since nines full is better than 6s full, you win :)

      Same goes for having A2 vs KQ on A2KQ4 board where A2 wins

      Best regards,
