Table Games : Texas Hold’em Split Pots

By Joni Hawk

Level: Jul 26th 2006
Is it true that there is a feature called split pot in Texas Hold’em? For instance, if the up-cards are 2-3-8 jack and king, and I have on my hand a king and an ace, my opponent having the king and queen can I win the pot having a pair of kings with an ace high? I am certain that I do, however my friends say I don’t. What is the correct answer?

By definition, a split pot is a pot where two or more players have hands of equal value, and, therefore, divide equally the money in the pot. Texas Hold’em uses exposed communal cards in the middle of the table which, if combined with the two hidden cards from each player’s hand that are used to form the best poker hand.

Bow, according to your question, normally you should have won the pot outright with your pair of kings, ace high. But, card suits are also important, but you did not mention the suits of any of the cards in your inquiry. If he had the communal cards all been of the same suit, while in the same time your king/ace together with your opponent’s king/queen had been of a different suit, then normally the pot would have been split since you both would share a flush, any five cards of the same suit, with the 2-3-8 jack and king.
