How can this be?

Holding pair of 4(c) 4(d)

Flop - 4(s) 3(s) 4(h) K(s) 7(s)

Other party goes all in - I call easily, since 4 pairs wins automatically over
a flush which I presumed as I checked, and there were bets and raises on
the NL. (Play Chips)

At the River, due to side pot - the other two players still in; which would not
matter unless I figured they may have also a flush or three of a kind or possible
two pairs or bluff.

Since player 1 - raises, player 2 re-raises; excessively quickly; I go all in with
over 6,000+ chips, player 1 calls and player 2 folds.

Player 2 wins with a flush with an Ace high?


Tell me how can this be? Since when does a flush beat a 4 pair? Not possible,
not even the Hoyle Rule Book and I have been playing Poker since I've been
very young kid as my deceased father used to own a billard and poker hall
years ago before he sold it (long before the Government made them illegal).

I am left dumbfounded and perplexed, if it were possible to log the table and
hand number which was exceedingly prolonged series which would be impossible
for anyone to document such as it vanishes so quickly.

Searching everywhere in my programs and log files for that specific info; that
had to be the worst glitch I had ever encountered; even when I used to play
for real money before the US Government put an end to it.

But someone, please tell me how can this be?


In addition - how can this be as well?

Holding:

5(d) 6(d)

FLOP: A(s) K(h) 2(d) 7(d) 9(d)

Everyone was involved which put me all in; I won it easily with a flush,
but the winner of it won it with a 2 pair of Aces and Kings? With the side
pot going to the other party (due to chips) for Acey Duecey? Everyone else
mucked their cards.

Tell me when does a 2 pair beat a flush? The main pot would have gone
to me automatically and the side pot would had gone to the one with the
Aces and Kings.

??????????????

I had before when Poker Stars was permitted in US; I was able to phone them in, and provided them the info and they looked it up and it was a flawed error and money was refunded and the other party was notified in the real money tables.

You are correct about the "hear say" - however, that is an issue there but it has happened before in real money, as my original user ID is southie; I've been with Poker Stars for years since it first came out.

Just this one, the other one is gone... Poker Stars has already emailed me earlier and sorted things out; but I am still awaiting for my chips and everything else to be put back into the account though.

the only straight flush possible there is if he held 5 6 of spades which would give a 7 high straight flush. Not an Ace high flush

three players in the pot. He saw the money movey away from his quads and in the shock and confusion he only saw the A but didn't actually process where the money has gone. I have actually made this same mistake before. and took a few looks at the hand history before i worked it out

He's also getting 5 cards on the flop, so that's an obvious glitch...

In the top left corner of the table window it lists Game #******* and Previous #*******

Click Previous and it will bring up a text hand history, which you can copy and paste here. By clicking on the red circle with a curved arrow in it, you can see the hand replayed.

The PokerStars program can be set to save ALL of your hand histories as well. Turn that on by going to Options/Instant Hand History Options. Turn it on. It will save to a folder called C:\Users\*YourNameHere*\AppData\Local\PokerStars\H andHistory\ or where ever you choose to put them.

Go do a search for that folder and see if you can't find the hands hand you're talking about.

Thanks for still stopping by to answer things here, Randy. Really shows how much of a class act you truly are.

Loved your new blog. Great breakdown of a live hand and how you responded to it as a primarily online player.

Here's to hoping we'll be able to meet again on the PStars cyber felt. Soon.
