    This is an easy one to figure, I am surprised so many got this wrong.

    In Hold'em, the version of poker you are referring to, you ALWAYS count the best FIVE cards that make the poker hand.

    In this case you have:

    A 10

    Best hand A A 4 4 K

    A 6

    Best hand A A 4 4 K

    The board has a pair of fours on it, which are counted, because this allows both players to make two pair. Each pair his or her aces, and also plays the pair on the board. So now both players have made two pair. The final card that determines the hand is the highest card left, which in this case is the king. The king beats both the 6 and the 10, therefore neither play.

    Therefore since both hands are the same, the pot is split.

    Now if that king on the turn had been an eight it would be a different story. The A 10 player would have made AA44 and his ten would have beaten the nine and eight making the best hand AA44 10. The other player would have ended up with AA449, a weaker hand, therefore the losing hand.

    mudsud is correct. In poker you use the best 5 cards available to you. Any other cards are of no consequence. In this case the best cards for both players are the Ace in their hand, the Ace on the flow the 4 on the flop, the King on the turn and the 4 on the river; or A, A, 4, 4, K for both players. The fact that one player had a 10 does not matter, because a poker hand consists of only 5 cards. No one wins; it is a split pot.

    Its a split pot because Ace 6 turns out to be:

    AA44K

    and Ace 10:

    AA44K

    which is the same so its a split pot.

    Split Pot: Both players play A,A,4,4,K. Since both players have 2 pair, and the highest singleton on the board is higher than the kickers in the player's hand, then both players have the same hand.
