Read previous posts might help.
Essentially a 4 card rainbow is the badugi, if you have it and the opponent doesn't then you win. beyon the bedugi its a lowball game (also stated in previous post) whereby a234 is the best low hand (so ah2s3d4c for example is the nuts). If you have a pair in your hand even with or without a bedugi chances are someone probably has a badugi of some form.
If you have a badugi with say A223 vs a233 then you win, however vs 10jkq badugi then you lose (ie lowball game). Previous posts have pretty much laid this all out or provided a link to details on the game.
