Ace-to-Six Lowball

  1. Noun

    Any variation of poker in which players attempt to make the weakest poker hand possible rather than the strongest, in which Aces are considered low cards, and in which straights and flushes count as high hands; lowball in which the best possible hand is 6-4-3-2-A without a flush.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The best possible hand in Ace-to-Six Lowball is 6-4-3-2-A without a flush, as opposed to the best possible hands of 7-5-4-3-2 without a flush in Deuce-to-Seven Lowball and 5-4-3-2-A regardless of suit in Ace-to-Five Lowball.

    EXAMPLE: "I really enjoy Ace-to-Six lowball, but usually only have a chance to play it in home games. It isn't available in my local cardroom."
