      This is not the first time I see such thing happen on PokerStars. There was a board of 9 T Q 6 5, and action went bet, bet, bet...

      In the showdown I had Q4 and villain had Q3 and the pot was split!

      Why should this happen? I saw this happen before on hands I wasn't playing and never quite understood. :s_confused:

      your hands were both QQ9T6

      hand consists of 5 cards, not 6

      your hand: Q Q T 9 6 5 4
      opponent's hand: Q Q T 9 6 5 3

      when i just started playing poker (first or second day, not a single hand before) i played a hand which was checked from flop to the river a i was really surprised when i won the pot with ace to five straight
      so i googled "poker ace to five straight" :D ok now i understand

      few hands later i was 3 betting river with king to 4 straight :s_biggrin: and was even more surprised when the guy with top pair won

      Once I played poker with my sister and a couple of friend of hers, she kept insisting she had won a hand because she had three pair while her friend had two pair with a better kicker:P
