The lowest hand is called a low hand. In poker, it is a hand in which one or more players has a low hand. The goal of razz poker is to have a low hand, as the ace is the lowest card in the deck. This game follows the stud format, but players cannot swap their cards. The highest hand is called a high hand, and the lowest low hand is called a low hand.

The game is played with any number of players, but the ideal number is six or eight. Each player has five cards, and the value of each hand is inversely proportional to its mathematical frequency. Players may bet on the best hand and if others call, that player’s bet will be matched. If a hand is a tie, the dealer must reshuffle and cut the deck. The player with the highest hand wins the pot.

Different poker variants have different betting limits. In stud poker, for example, the betting limit is higher after the first draw. In draw poker, the minimum limit is twice as much as the amount of bets before the draw. The higher limit applies to players with exposed pairs, which are the lowest hands in poker. This makes it possible for players to make more bets without making a low-ranking hand. So, how much should you bet?
