Live Ones

A "live ace" (or "live deuce," "live trey" etc.) is a type of low hand in omaha8 that has been counterfeited but is still eligible as a qualifying five-card low hand.

For example, on a board containing 7532, the hand A2 constitutes a "live ace." If the board read 753A, the same A2 combination would constitute a "live deuce."
