Saw a hand that confused everyone at the table.


Say the board is: J 4 4 4 8. Heads up at the river. Neither player had quads or a full house. So what then is the best hand?

Keep in mind that if you hold AKJT or something, you would play 444 AK (having to use two from your hand) and not have a full house. So you would need to hold a pocket pair to have a full house.

So the answer here is that if nobody had quads or a full house, a flush could win if there were three of a suit and otherwise whoever had the best high cards like an AKXX hand.

Basically your best 2 cards you hold of your 4 hands must be played to the best 3 community cards of the 5 that are down is how I fully understand Omaha.

Need to see the heads up hole cards to really help you.

If the J, 8 and one of the 4's where the same suite, and if one of players also had two cards with the same suite, a flush would win.

Otherwise it would go to the highest card.
If both players had an equal high card, then second highest card.

Cannot edit my original post.
You mentioned "Counterfeited" so that tends to suggest a shared pot. So the flush would be impossible.

Well, dropping from quads, to full house, would be flush, then 3 of a kind 4's, with highest card, if opponents have same high card, highest kicker. If the same kicker, split pot.

Your Jack may have gotten counterfeited when the 3rd 4 appeared making 2 pair no longer a winner.
