    3. Adjective

      Rough; that includes several of the highest possible cards for the given hand; as opposed to smooth.

      ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Example: In Ace-to-Five lowball, a hand of seven could be made with any of several possible combinations, 7-6-5-4-2, 7-6-5-4-A, 7-6-5-3-2, 7-4-3-2-A and many others. 7-4-3-2-A is the best seven because it uses the lowest possible cards. 7-6-5-4-A would be a rag seven because it uses several of the higher cards that would still be referred to by the same rank.

      EXAMPLE: "I made a rag seven."

      APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
