Poker Variants: High-low Poker

In high-low poker the pot, or part of it, can be won by the highest or the lowest poker hand at the showdown. Often, these are split pot games, in which the highest and lowest hands can share the pot. Most poker variants, whether based draw, stud or shared card mechanisms, may be played in hi-lo versions with more or less success. In casinos and clubs, Seven Card Stud High-low and Omaha/8 are perhaps the best known high-low games, and there are also many home poker variants that use this principle.

The index below includes both traditional high-low poker variants and invented variants (listed in italics). The game types column shows other categories to which some games also belong. See also the full index of poker variants, which includes an explanation of the categories.
