The dealer will turn over two more community cards (for a total of five community cards), with a bet following both the fourth and the fifth cards.

Aces may be used for low, and straights and flushes do not impair the value of a hand for low. (Ace-two-three-four-five is the best low hand).

The Object:
A player may use any five of his/her seven cards to make their best high hand, and any other grouping of five cards, whether the same as their high hand or not, to make his/her best low hand In some instances, a player may be able to build both the high and low hand from their seven cards, in which case they take the entire pot.
