I don\'t understand how I lost this hand
 
The board was 10h, 8d, 2s, 3c, Kh

I held As, Qd giving me a straight, right? - 3c, 2s, As, Kh, Qd

My opponent held Kd, 8c giving him two pair - Kings and Eights

How did I loose this hand? The pot was given to my opponent after a showdown on a popular poker site.

A23QK isnt a straight since you are missing 456789TJ between the 3 and the Q.
A2345 is a straight TJQKA is a staight, can't put half of one with half of the other.

Edit: Also hoping this is a joke [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

straights don't wrap around the top. i.e. the King, Ace and TWo don't connect. the king and ace, and the ace and two connect separately.

i do find sometimes i don't understand why i lost, and the the SNG will have kicked me out really fast. i go back and the site/software is never wrong. usually a straight i didn't see or something to do with counterfeited pairs and then my kicker not being good enough.

do we really need the "circle jerk" sarcasm in the beginners forum?

How did you like it when you first started playing Omaha and did not understand why your straight flush lost? The answer why being that you were trying to play one card out of your hand.
