Nuts and Bolts

In a game of stud hi-lo, razz, or A-5 lowball, the nut low hand is the wheel, A2345. In 2-7 lowball, the nut low (also called a wheel) is 75432.

In a game like Omaha 8, the nut-low will depend on the board texture. So, if the board reads A478, any hand containing a 2 and a 3 will be the nut low.
