Some places play it as the lowest. Nationally, most places probably play it as the lowest. why is this an emergency?

Specific to PaiGowPoker, everywhere I've played, A2345 is the second highest straight.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I've seen it played both ways, but think the majority of the shops play A-5 as the second highest straight.

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"

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.

When I first started writing about the game, A2345 was considered to be the second highest straight everything I was aware of. However, I think a lot of casinos are finally seeing how ridiculous the rule is and are making it the lowest straight.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
