cuz one time i had 66 and the flop turn and river was 3 8 6 8 A and i lost the hand because someone had a flush and the site said i showed 3 of a kind sixes and lost. how did i not have a full house? someone please help explain this please.
In the 2nd example, you must be mistaken. Do you have a hand history by any chance?
Getting back to the first example. Yes, you typed in 6 cards there. I am going to make this example 7 10 K 5 5. If you have KK, you have a boat. If you have K5, you also have a boat. Big difference though. With KK you have Kings full of 5s. The only hand that can beat you is quad 5s. If you have K5, then you have 5s full of Ks. Someone with a pair of 7s or 10s in the hole could beat your boat with a better one.
