I would like to know more about this too.
This is what I know so far from using pokerstove:
A5o (42.44%) < A6o (57.56%)
makes sense, cause of better kicker
A5 against every other hand (not A6) hold up better than A6.
A5o vs KQo - 58.06% vs 41.94%
A6o vs KQo - 57.46% vs 42.54%
really small difference, and I would assume its cause of straight making ability?
be great it someone could provide better insight.
