I was playing PGP for fun (practicing) on the Wizards Site.

I was dealt JOKER, Ac, 9s, 9h, 6h, 3h, 2h.

How would you have split this hand?

Your poll has an error in it. The one option has two 9h and no 9s.

I believe the correct play would be the flush in the high hand and A/9 in the low. A/9 isn't too terribly bad relative to 9/9, but flush is a great improvement over A/A in the high hand.

I tried to correct the poll but I couldn't. You are correct, the 9h should be 9s

Aces in high hand Nines in low hand. Ace-nine is an extremely weak ace, not much better than a king-queen. Nines are far superior to an ace-nine. A flush is superior to aces, of course, but not as much as the superiority of nines over the ace-nine. My guess......
JB can show the exact EVs of both plays.

The house at my Casino would play the Aces as high and the 9's as low. I would play it the same way as a player and still collect the flush bonus worst case.

Sorry I screwed the poll up.
I was dealt , JOKER, Ac, 9s, 9h, 6h, 3h, 2h, .

I would have played it this way. JOKER, 9h, 6h, 3h, 2h, (Flush) with Ac, 9s on top.

I hit 'House way' and they would have played JOKER, Ac, 6h, 3h, 2h with 9h, 9s on top.

The dealer had JOKER, 10h, 9d, 8d, 7c (straight) with Kd, 7s on top.

The 'House way' resulted in a PUSH.

My way would have won.

It's gonna happen. I was playing UTH and folded 6s 3c; the flop was 3-3-3. Oh well. If we could see through the cards it would be easy.

Yes, playing the flush is more likely to win if the dealer gets a straight or a flush.

The house way is more likely to win if the dealer gets two pair, or a pair with an ace kicker.

Which do you think is more likely?

Don't be results oriented.
