This is a discussion on help 3aces and flush within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; i was in a texas holdem game online and had in my hand an ace and a club, the river came up with 2 aces
i was in a texas holdem game online and had in my hand an ace and a club, the river came up with 2 aces and 4 clubs so i assumed i had 3 of a kind /flush but was beaten with a flush ace king something ...i'm not sure what the phrase was so wondering what beats what i had or whatever?
if he had a higher flush that beats your 3 of a kind so you said he had ace.king so if they wer clubs that beats your club and your 3 of a kind its goes like this 10 being the lowest hand
10. ace high
8. two pair
7. 3 of a kind
6 . straight
3. four of a kind
2. straight flush
1. royal flush

flush is ranked higher
Since there were 4 clubs on board you only need one card to make a flush. You mentioned that you had a club so you made a flush but the opponent won because he too had a club which was of a higher rank than your club.
So if you had 8 of clubs with an ace and opponent has King of clubs as one of his hole cards he will win the pot in a board having 4 clubs till river such as you mentioned. Got it ?
