    Is this a Straight Royal Flush (winner - upper right)? The Jack is not hearts. So, it's a flush and a straight, but not a SRF. Correct? Lower left is a straight, thus it's a tie.

    The hand in the upper right corner has both a straight (10 to Ace) and a flush (five hearts). Because the flush is the better hand it would simply be called a flush.

    But it is not a straight flush - the jack is the jack of diamonds, it would have to be the jack of hearts to make a straight flush (a Royal Flush in that case).

    Right. But it does state Straight Flush below WINNER. Is the program wrong then? So, it's a winner anyway, or is that a tie with the other straight?

    there's no tie. either way the hand is a flush so it beats a straight every time.

    as far as the program listing "straight flush" it is indeed wrong.

    Yes, the program is wrong. The player in the upper right corner has a flush, not a straight flush, so they have the best hand.

    What likely happened here is the software uses flags to check the value of a players hand and then checks what flag is set to determine the value of that hand. In this case the player in the upper right corner would have had the flags for straight and flush enabled... but instead of the software having a specific "straight flush" flag it just checked "Is the straight flag set? Is the flush flag set? If yes to both then it must be a straight flush!"

    3 Card Holdem?

    If you look at the image, in upper left hand corner the title is 3C Texas Holdem Poker.

    If this truly is only a 3 card game, then the hand with the A-K-Q of hearts would be a straight flush winner.

    It says the player in the upper left corner has two pair... that requires four cards. 3C is probably the name of the software.
