If no one gets badugi then the first 3 lowest cards win
Correct, but just to be sure people understand, it's the 3 lowest card of different suits.

ac 2d 3h 4h
Just to make it clear, the 2nd hand would be beaten by any
Badugi, meaning TJQK wins if it's the complete rainbow. Here's another example, mainly for bigunclefrank:
1st hand wins, you have a 3 card Badugi, albeit to the K
2ns hand, you have a 2 card Badugi, Ad5c. The highest card(s) of the same suit are essentially thrown away. A 3-card Badugi beats a 2-card.
Have to disagree with Bayley. Most Badugi games are usually played pot limit. If that's the case, and you raise preflop, by the 2nd draw, it can become essentially no-limit. Most people's exposure to Badugi has been freerolls
, where you're always gonna get a lot of people playing wild, no matter what the game. You have to make adjustments in your normal game early on, but often that is where there's a ton of $ to be made. Some don't even know the rules, and others are just bad players - for instance... call or raise with a bad draw (drawing 1 card 3x to a Q-high Badugi)
