A few years ago I played a hand in a live tourney where I got dealt AA, another player was also dealt AA and a third got KK. We raised and reraised each other until we were all in preflop, and we ended up splitting KK's chips. Sh1t happens even when playing live.

Of all AA vs AA situations that i played there was a flush and always the red cards won over the black cards... Math they are equal but this always happed to me, i think there were at least 8 or 9 hands like that. Anyways you played the hand correctly!

been there as well- actually had the joy of being on the winning side as well, man that's such a great feeling to stuff villain when he is holding same cards... the only downside is that i couldn't see his face (mahdrof was a bit luckier here, still not exact situation, but cool nonetheless...), when i lost i wasn't that happy for some reason

ofc you lost, i always lose with black vs red AA too
but yea it happens, not much you can do about it except hope next time its you on the flush side. not to mention this topic most likely wouldnt exist if you were the one who got flush instead of your opponent ive had my fair share of those wins but i kinda forget about it in 1 min tops... now if we could only forget about those beats that fast too

Haha love the caption read it before and it is always so good to refresh your mind about it. The black aces against the red aces we have roughly the same % to win and the same % to split, but sometimes the flush comes in and you lose AA vs AA, it happens more often than not and when this happens you just laugh it off as it is funny as hell if you looks at it from another point of view. Losing with AA just because he had the other Ace!

The whole red v black thing is a myth! Statistically, eventually, there is no bias towards either colour, as there are the same amount. You could run a trial and over a certain period of time or plays, you could show bias, but that will not be the true mathematical answer, which is, as we all know, that they are equal!

Been on this situation before. Actually i have been in both sides, winning and losing with them. Havent managed to lose the hand yet from another caller so far like the scenario av1966 say. Not that im looking for it, since its even worst losing like that for me

I saw that happening in one of those final table shows that used to pass on tv ( i think the show was called "late night poker" but i might be mistaken). the hand was played between 2 big names of poker which i can't recall lol.. I only remember Mike the Mouth was there coz one of the guy had a little electronic billboard passing the text "shut up Mike!" as a card protector lol. Anyway, AA vs AA, they both shake hands saying nice hand to each other, and the river brought the flush one of them needed. Mike liked it lol. The guy with the billboard was sent off
