comment Poker texas holdem combinations: tie or not tie?
@corsiKa - That's exactly what I said. Maybe I could have said "all players who haven't folded split the pot", but yes, the players split the pot.

comment Poker texas holdem combinations: tie or not tie?
One special-case that should be evaluated before anything else in community-card poker. If the five community cards represent the best hand for each player at the table, all players still in split the pot regardless of their hole cards. A player can beat the community by having a hole card that betters the hand "on the table", such as an Ace of a flush suit.

comment In case of same card in both player
... But to avoid sending people who found this question around to others, the short answer is that the two players tie and split the pot down the middle (any indivisible fraction remaining in the pot for the next hand).

comment Can I build a settlement if I don't have the building piece for it?
For three players, 12 is good. For four, it can make the endgame very boring and arbitrary, essentially betting against a particular roll of the dice that will give the lead player the last of a resource he needs for that one final point.

comment What card should I play when my partner has bid nil and I can't follow suit in Spades?
I don't understand situations 2 or 3; Spades is the trump suit in this game. Perhaps you mean the "suit led", in that you're not sure whether your partner will be forced to follow suit with a possible trick-winning, bid-busting card.

comment What's the name of the move where the player swaps King and Rook/Castle in Chess? Why is this move important?
The question is somewhat general-reference; a Google search for "swap king and rook" brings up the Wikipedia article on "Castling" as the first result, which would tell bigown all he'd need to know about the move and more. Stack Exchange is not supposed to be a substitution for Google; in fact the point is to supplement Google search results for similar queries to the questions asked.
