In Omahapoker there is the variant Omaha Hi/Lo. Here the pot is divided between 2 players, the one with the best hand for “high” cards, or rather: Best poker hand, and best hand for “low” cards. To win best low hand, you must have a hand where the highest card is a maximum of eight and the hand must not contain a pair. Whether the best low hand contains a flush or a straight is secondary. As an example, this hand: A-1-2-3-7 beats this hand: A-1-2-3-8, since 7 is the highest card in the former hand. Here follows another example: The combination 2-3-4-5-6 beats A-1-2-3-7 since 6 is the lowest card of the first-mentioned combination, the fact that the hand is a straight does not matter.
