The best razz hands

Once you understand the rules, Razz is a particularly fun variation of poker and you are strongly urged to get involved in this encapsulating game. Unlike more common forms of poker such as texas hold'em, the best razz hand is the lowest and not the highest combination of cards which is usually the ruling in other forms. It's also worthy to note that straights and flushes don't count for anything in Razz so don't get excited if you spot one of the two when playing!

In Razz, the person with the lowest high card wins, it may seem complicated at first, but when grasped it really is a simple, yet widely enjoyed game. Below are the top five best razz hands, study them and ensure you remember them all so when in a game situation, you realise when you have hands that are both good and bad.

  1. A,2,3,4,5
  2. A,2,3,4,6
  3. A,2,3,5,6
  4. A,2,4,5,6
  5. 2,3,4,5,6

As you can see, the best hand in Razz is A-5 much like a straight in texas holdem poker except in this, gaining a straight doesn't matter, just the fact that you secured the five lowest possible cards. There are a whole host of websites where you can enjoy the game of Razz, such as pokerstars.com which is regarded as one of the best websites on the net to play Razz competitively for money and also just for fun.
