Ermmmm.... 3 of a kind always beats 2 pair. Heres the heirachy of cards beginning from the lowest:
High card (no pair, player with highest card wins)

re: Poker & Three Of A Kind vs. 2 High Pairs
"3 of a kind always beats 2 pair."
On a side note if you have two pair Kings and Twos and your opponent holds Queens and Jacks, you win the pot. Whoever holds the highest pair if bothhold two pair wins. You dont combine the "pair values" or whatever.
I know your question wasnt about this but I figured Id throw it in as well.
