Hi rembizzel,

In your screenshot we cannot see all bets or initial stacks for each player, but I guess it happened something like:
  • birdie had 1$ and went all in
  • rembizzel had 3$ and went all in
  • other had 7$ and went all in

Total pot is 11$, but there are actually 3 pots. First with 3$ shared among all three players. Second with 4$ is shared only between last two players, and 4$ as side pot

How are they going to share out?
  • First pot with 3$ goes to birdie, because they have best hand
  • Second pot with 4$ goes to rembizzel, because birdie doesn't play this pot and you have best hand.
  • Side pot (4$) is for the other player.
