There are optimum strategies for forming the high and low hands to increase your chances of winning. Many of these strategies are fairly obvious while others require the learning of specific playing strategies. Here are some tips on how to best set your hand depending on what type of hand you are dealt (i.e., a hand that contains no pairs, one pair, two pairs, flush, etc.). No Pairs : Play the second- and third-highest ranked cards as the low hand and the remaining five cards as high hand. For example if you were dealt ace, 10, 5, 9, 3, 2, J, you would set the J, 10 as low hand and ace, S, 9, 3, 2 as high hand. One Pair : The pair is set in the high hand and your next two highest-ranked cards as low hand. For example 3, 3, 5, 7, 9, K, 10 you would play 3, 3, 5, 7, 9 as high hand and K, 10 as low hand. Two Pair : Your playing strategy depends upon the rank of the pairs. If one of your pairs is A, A; K, K; Q, Q, then split the pairs putting the high pair (As, Ks, Qs) in high hand and the other pair as low hand. For all other pairs, play them as two pair in the high hand if you have a king or ace that you can use in your low hand. If you don't have a king or ace, then you're better off to split the pairs with the high pair in high hand and low pair in low hand. Three Pair : Play your highest-ranking pair in low hand. Three-of-a-kind : With three aces and kings, split them playing the ace (or king) in low hand and the pair in high hand. All other ranked three of-a-kind should be played in high hand with your two highest-ranked cards as the low hand. Straights and Flushes : In general, play the straight or flush as the high hand, the remaining two cards as low hand. Full House : Play the high pair as low hand and the three-of-a-kind in high hand. Four-of-a-kind : Always split your four As, Ks, Qs - play one pair as low hand and the other in high hand. With four Js-7s, play them as a four of-a-kind in high hand only if you have at least a queen that you can use in the low hand. If you don't have the latter, then split the four-of-a-kind (two in low hand, two in high hand). With four 2s-6s never split, always play them in high hand. Five Aces : Strange as this may seem, you should split the aces and play a pair of aces in low hand, and three aces in high hand.
