You're playing a pot with me heads up in Texas Hold 'Em. The turn card has been dealt and you currently have the best hand. However, no matter what card comes on the river, you can't win. What are the two hands and what is on the board?
Ouch my brain hurts. Here goes; P1:23 against P2:24 with a 5689 on the board. Currently P2 with 98654 is ahead. Anything pairs or a card higher then a 9 and its a push. 7 is a str8 for both also a push. If P2 pairs his 4 thats gives a str8 to P1 and the win. I must have missed something but...
You are correct rob, darn it all. I can't find a hole in dastrey's so is his right? I didn't see the hole in mine either so....

I also have an answer.
I have 23 and you have 22. The board has 2 higher pairs without a straight draw for me. for instance 7788.
If the case 2 comes on the river, my opponent will have a boat, and any other card would mean we're both playing the board.
It's not as creative as the one dastrey made, but it still works.
