    In poker, the suits have no meaning except for forming a flush. A pair of kings beats a pair of jacks in ANY poker game.

    The pair of kings is higher because kings are higher than jacks.

    In the evaluation of the hands, there's 3 things that are checked (out of the best 5 cards out of the 7).

    1) Type of Hand (4-of-a-kind, Full House, Flush, ect.)

    2) Highest Card in hand set

    3) 2nd Highest Card in hand (regardless of set)

    If the tie isn't broken after all 3 checks are done, a split pot is declared.

    In your scenario...

    1) Both Players (A & B) have the same type of hand: 1 Pair

    2) For Highest Card in-set (the Pair): Player A has Jacks, Player B has Kings

    Therefore, Player B wins the hand.

    The pair of Kings. It's the value of the cards that determines which pair is higher. Since Kings are higher than Jacks, the pair of Kings wins.
