Two players had Flush. The one with the highest card in the flush should win, however, they both had the King as the highest card.

This is what hand log shows:

Seat 2: Eldrago (140)
Seat 3: DeMpDoN (935)
Seat 4: BeaD (180)
Seat 5: ynwa (1044)
Seat 8: kantic (982)

DeMpDoN shows [Qd 2d] (a Flush, King high +Q962)
BeaD shows [3d 4d] (a Flush, King high +9643)
DeMpDoN wins Pot (232) with a Flush
Rake (8) Pot (240) Players (Eldrago: 10, DeMpDoN: 110, BeaD: 110, ynwa: 10, kantic: 0)
** Deck ** [3d Ad 3h 9c Qd 4d 4s 5c Jd 2d 9d 6d 4c 8s Kd]



From what I know, both users should have split the pot instead of the DeMpDoN winning it.

Nope, a flush is a 5-card hand. It goes to the next card and all the way down to the 5th if necessary. The only way a flush can split is if the highest 5 cards showing of the same suit are all on the board.
