Is ace high straight a 2345 always the second highest or do some places play it as the lowest
Some places play it as the lowest. Nationally, most places probably play it as the lowest. why is this an emergency?
To avoid disputes, many of the casino's a notice on the table signage that states "A-2-3-4-5 is the second highest straight"
It was an emergency because I had an issue with a big hand and they refused to show me where in the rules it said that and it said it no where/ didn't want to make an ass if my self with gaming commission if this is always the second highest
What state? The rules are codified in PA and, I think, MD. So you could look up the uniform state rules pretty easily there. In other jurisdictions, it'd vary by casino. As Midwest AP says, it's usually pretty clearly posted when that's the second highest straight. It generally IS the second highest in NV and NJ, and is NOT in the midwest, gulf area, or CA.
