Scala of low hands scores in poker ace to five lowball
The ACE to Five Lowball Classification defines the value of the low hands in poker
The ranking of ACE to Five Lowball (or California) scorer is used to determine the value of the low hands in the hi-lo poker variants, as well as the Omaha Hi-Lo and the study Hi-Lo.
General rules ACE TO FIVE:
In order to be considered low, a hand must be made up of cards of different value, lower than 9.
The lowest paper is always the ace and the value of the hand is always calculated starting from the highest card.
The seeds of the cards are completely irrelevant.
The presence of a color or a staircase does not invalidate the value of a low hand.
Hi-lo scores: from the most important to the least important.
- Wheel, or wheel 5 cards in succession from 5 to, the best low hand.
- Six-Low 5 cards of different value, with 6 higher paper.
- Seven-Low 5 cards of different value, with 7 higher paper.
- Eight-Low 5 cards of different value, with 8 higher paper.
- The worst low hand
In case of equal: In the case of hands having the same lowest card, the second lower card is examined and so on, until the last card.
An example: A hand 7 ♠ 6 ♠ 4 ♥ 2 ♥ A ♣, beats a hand 7 ♦ 6 ♦ 5 ♣ 2 ♠ a ♠. Both hands have the two lowest cards of the same value, but the third lowest card is different, in the first case a 4, in the second case a 5.
If all 5 cards have the same value, the portion of the dish intended for the best low hand is divided between multiple players.
A note concerning the variant of poker rac: in this type of game the previous evaluations are not valid, as the lowest hand in the broadest sense of the term always wins the dish, that it is an eight -low, of a trio or a couple.
