Hi. Anybody know the answer to this?

I got J33, the dealer got 633. I believe I should have won the hand. However, it was given as a push, using odds-on software.

once had one of my biggest bets ever on a hand of 3-card poker, seen q,k,a of whatever suit drop in, was punching the air,etc,etc, then seen 1,2,3 of a suit come in for the dealer, punching the air again at my "lucky escape" till i realised the truth, and that was MG software aswell

????? Dunno what you are talking about. Was it a straight or royal flush for you against ,I suppose a straight flush of A,2,3 for the dealer. If its a big bet,what's the lucky escape?

I guess he means that he thought his straight beat the dealers straight until he realized the dealer actually had a straight flush?

nope a str8 flush each, only prob is that a,2,3 is the higher str8 flush than q,k,a

Something's wrong here. The akq must count as a royal and definitely higher than a23. What does it say in the rules?

Did you make the pair plus bet? Even if the dealer beat you with a higher straight flush, at least you would have been paid on the pair plus.

qka is def higher then a23

have just "googled" the rules on a few sites, looks like i'm wrong, but did still had the "bad beat" though,obviosly time has taken it toll and i have exgerated, but it was about 2/3 years ago at microgaming, hand came after the most ridiculous hands of pai gow i have ever had in my life.

According to standard British rules, A23 is the highest straight or straight flush. According to the Wizard of Odds, MG treated it as the 2nd highest, but now it is the lowest, and he has a screenshot showing the dealer's 567 beating the player's A23. These differences don't change the house edge or the strategy.

Losing this didn't make much difference to the pay-out, but it was one of those classic on-line casino moments... I think my straight flush was much more aesthetically appealing :cool:
