Hi sexymax38!

What type of tourney was it? In omaha, a player must use only 2 from their hand and 3 from the board. Is that what happened or was it in a game where worst hand wins?

A flush does beat 2 pair.

Please post a hand history and I'll be glad to look at it for you.

Hi sexymax38!

Hand histories can be obtained from the client from the requests tab, then the first item there is hand history. PS will then e-mail you whatever histories that you request. You can then copy/paste the hand in question here and we'd be more than happy to look at it for you.

The reason I first thought of maybe an omaha hand is that players in that game forget that you can only use 2 of the 4 cards in your hand... so thinking that you have one hand when you really have something else is a very common error there.
