Notes on Poker Hands with the Same Rank
NOTE 1: If two players have Two Pair, the poker hand with the highest Pair wins. If they have the same high Pair, whoever has the second highest Pair in their hand wins. If they have the same Two Pairs, then whoever has the highest fifth card wins the hand.
NOTE 2: If two players have the same value Pair, the highest card(s) outside of their Pair wins the hand.
