HI/LO POKER GUIDE

Hi-Lo

Hi-Lo poker is a variation that can be added to most games. In it, the highest hand splits the pot with the lowest hand. The lowest possible hand you can get would be: 2 3 4 5 7 (no flush). Stud games, Anaconda, and Omaha are traditionally good games to play Hi-Lo, though just about any game can be played this way.
