Hi/Lo or Lo Only Games:
When playing a Hi/Lo game the pot is split between the best 5 card hand and the worst 5 card hand. The best hand rankings are listed above and below are examples of the lo-hand rankings.
Keep in mind for your lo-hand, flushes and straights are not counted. The hand is ranked by the value of your highest and lowest card. An ace is always considered the lowest card.
A hand – 8, 7, 6, 3, A, would be considered a 8-7 low hand. The ace counts as one.
In most games, the best lo-hand is 5, 4, 3, 2, A (a wheel), this is a 5-4 hand.
The second best hand is a 6, 4, 3, 2, A, this is a 6-4 hand.
If everyone has a pair, the lowest pair will win.
In the event that two players hold the same low pair, the next lowest card will determine the winner.
