      Hi Kimst3r,

      A poker hand is the best 5 cards.

      So you had 2 pair (QQ and 99), and a 5 kicker (next higher card).

      He had 2 pair (QQ and 99) and an Ace as his kicker.

      Which means he had the best 5 card hand. Therefore he wins.

      Best regards,
      Stiev

      A winning hand consists of the best possible 5 card combination between your pocket cards and the board. Since the board showed 2 pair, your lower pocket pair doesn't count anymore. But unfortunately, your opponent completes this 2 pair with an Ace kicker, so that's why he wins.
