This is a discussion on question about hand ranking within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Hi there;
how is the hand ranking on straights?
Is A 2 3 4 5 - As high to or is it the lowest straight?:questionm
The best straight to get is A,K,Q,J,10 and then is just goes down from there, K,Q,J,10,9 and so on. This is for Hold'em poker. There are certain other games of poker where you can play a hand high or low meaning that the best high hand will split the pot with the best low hand. The best low hand is the lowest possible cards without having a pair so the best low hand is A,2,3,4,5 and the highest card u can go up to is an 8 any higher card is not counted as a low hand.
