When a player’s best 5 card hand is the 5 community cards. If all players are playing the board and nobody has cards that improve upon the community cards, the pot is chopped.


The board is 9T78J and hero has 78. Hero plays the board, as the best hand he can form is the straigth on the board. If nobody else has a better hand, Hero can share in the pot.
