Low Ball Poker

Want to learn how to play Ace to 5 Low Ball poker online?  It's a relatively easy game to learn. 

Ace to 5 is a popular version of lowball poker which works by all players trying to make the best hand possible from five cards.

As in many Poker games the player to the left of the dealer has to make a forced bet (a blind) with the next player to the left placing a big blind (a bet that is double the size of the blind). The minimum bet that can now be made is equal to the big blind.

The players are then dealt five cards each. After viewing their cards each player can then a make the decision to call the bet (match the big blind), raise the bet (raise the price of the big blind) or fold. This is the first of four betting rounds that occurs within the game.

Once each player has made their bets any players that are left in the game now have the chance to replace as many cards from their hand as they please. They have the option to change one card or all five cards and anywhere in between.

In the second round of betting the players once again have a chance to call, raise or fold. Any players left in the game after this now discard or replace any number of their cards as they wish. Another round of betting follows this along with another chance to discard or replace any cards a player wishes.

Now comes the final round of betting which is followed by the showdown. After the players have made their final bets any players still left in the game show their cards.

Whichever player has the lowest hand wins the game and the pot!

Understanding the hands is vital in learning how to play Ace to 5 Lo Ball Poker and these are two things to remember:  In this game Straights and Flushes do not count (Ace is a low card) and the best possible hand is Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5.
