      at a recent showdown:

      I'm dealt 3s Th

      FLOP 7s As Ts
      TURN 3d
      RIVER Js

      Opponent shows Td Ks

      and wins with spade flush Ace high.
      Shouldn't we be splitting the pot? I mean, from what I learned, there are no kickers in flushes. Or did I learn wrong?

      Hi tecalcoluka

      Kickers do count in flushes, the only time it doesn't count is if all the suited cards on the board are higher than the ones in your opponents and your hand. Also if 5 spades come up on the board n you and your opponent hold no spades then the hand is split.

      Kickers definately count in flushes and it is important too.
