1 Answer 1


Winner is player with best hand which means best set o 5 cards. In your example both players have 45678 as their hand so game is drawn and pot is splited.

  • The question only involves two players. Your use of terminology is poor, with the likely result of confusing people new to poker.

    Cards beyond the five card best hand do not matter. In the case where the 5 cards on the board are the best hand, all players who haven't folded split the pot.
