If you are holding...

9h 3h 3s 3c

What 3 boards will give you the river nuts?

When I was asked this question, my response was, "This is a trick question, I would never be in this hand to begin with." That didn't fly.

There are 3 possible boards that give this hand the nuts. I got 2 of them right away and am blanking on #3.

Here are the 2 I got...

#1 (The EASY One)

999 with any 2 cards 10 or greater not paired

#2 (The moderate one)

a heart royal flush on the board giving you a 9 high flush

999 with any 2 cards not paired
By the way, it can't be ANY 2 cards not paired.
999 Js Qs won't work since someone can have Ts Ks to get straight flush. It needs to be 999 with any 2 cards that can't make a straight flush.

These hands are both wrong because you have to have two cards in your hand play- HAVE TO! are 9 3 3 3, then only your 9 plays and your hand is disqualified

with a heart royal flush on the board, none of your cards play

So with 999 J A and your cards

You misunderstand the rules of Omaha.

If the board is 99942, and you hold 9333, your five-card hand is 99993 (93 from your hand, 999 from the board).

If the board is AhKhQhJhTh, and you hold 9h3h3x3x, your five-card hand is AhKhQh9h3h (93 from your hand, AKQ from the board).

Without looking at other responses:

1) Ah Kh Qh Jh Th (nuts would then be Ah Kh Qh 9h 3h)
2) 3d 2d 2h 2c 2s (nuts would then be 33322)
3) 9c 9s 9d x y, where x and y are unpaired if > 9, paired < 9 is ok, and x & y don't put a straight flush possibility out (nuts would then be quad 9s)

besides being wrong, i think you actually contradicted yourself. you can't "disqualify" yourself.



Without looking at other responses:

1) Ah Kh Qh Jh Th (nuts would then be Ah Kh Qh 9h 3h)
2) 3d 2d 2h 2c 2s (nuts would then be 33322)
3) 9c 9s 9d x y, where x and y are unpaired if > 9, paired < 9 is ok, and x & y don't put a straight flush possibility out (nuts would then be quad 9s)

correct, but you know that by now. i brain farted on (your) #2. i was hoping you would have spoiler tagged, but i should have asked.

i will set him up with a new pokerstars account and give him a 20% bonus if he plays at my table only.

sorry i just assumed that when there were already 9 replies in this thread, that the solutions were already figured out

I want to know what LostInNYC thinks will happen to the pot in his game when the board comes A:heart:K:heart:Q:heart:J:heart:T:heart: and every single person in the hand is "disqualified".

I also want to be the first person to use the new emoticons somewhere other than in the thread discussing them.
