This section of code is where I am testing the algorithm to catch a winning hand i.e. two pair, flush, straight, etc... It is able to find everything except a full house following an XXYYY pattern and two pairs. I'm not getting any errors and doesn't seem to be reaching the part of the code where it searches for that full house and two pair. How should I change the code to find it?
