re: Poker & Do you have to have a run?
If ace high is the best high hand then yes, it wins the high half of the pot.
It's normal for the low hand to have a "qualifier" (eg: you can't use any cards higher than an eight in making your low hand) but I've never heard of a version where there's a qualifier for the high hand.
