Lol what are you on about, have you ever played poker?
Flushes are far rarer than straights.
One in 510 hands i think instead of one in 250

And a flush beats a straight.

My mates started arguing cus there was a flush on the table already so player1 hada flush and straight nd player2 hada flush but i told em they were wrong nd that p2 won cus he hada flush straight off, so i thought "the internet shall know all!"

Flush beats a straight. The fact player two had King of hearts meant they had a better flush than player one. If both player two and player one had no hearts, it would have been a split pot.

A(H) means Ace of Hearts. 4(D) means Four of Diamonds.

consider:

TABLE: A(H) K(H) 10(H) 5(H) 3(H)

PLAYER ONE: 2(H) A(D)
PLAYER TWO: K(D)Q(C)

This is a split pot, as both players have the flush on the table. The 2(H) of PLAYER ONE doesn't make up the flush, so it's a split pot.

Consider:

TABLE: Q(D)K(D)5(C)5(H)3(D)

PLAYER ONE: 10(D)2(D)
PLAYER TWO: 9(D)8(D)

Here both players have a flush. But PLAYER ONE has a better flush with the 10(D), so PLAYER ONE takes the pot.

Hope I've cleared everything up.

Edit: and yeah obviously a STRAIGHT FLUSH beats a FLUSH, even if the FLUSH contains a higher card than in the STRAIGHT FLUSH.

E.g. 2(H)3(H)4(H)5(H)6(H) beats A(H)K(H)6(H)5(H)2(H).

Yeah just goes to who has the highest flush, the straight is irrelevant in this case.
