Rounders - Not the Nuts!
In the beginning The big scene where Mike ( Matt Damon) loses everything, when KGB replies back and says "no, I don't have spades". And casually turns over the aces and walks away without even seeing Damons hand. That wasn't the best possible hand ( the nuts) aces's full of nines is second best. Mike could have had pocket nines for a hand of four of a kind. Four of a kind beats any full house.

HE didn't get up immediately. The reaction on Mike's face told him that he won. Mike would have also showed his hand right away if he had won.

some people whould say that to down play thier hand. Mike reraises hoping Teddy caught the flush, although he had the 3rd nut hand, he EASILY could make that comment with quads ( so Teddy would called with a presumed flush)

The reason Teddy KGB knows he won right away is because when Mike McDermott goes all in, he tells KGB something to the effect of (Not a direct quote) "I'm all in 'cause I know you don't have the spades". SO in him saying that, KGB now knows that mike's hand couldn't beat a spade flush, and if it can't beat a spade flush, it wouldn't beat his aces full. The only thing that beats a flush is a straight or royal flush, or four of a kind.
