23456 because they take your lowest high card first so 6 in 23456 beats the 8 in A2358
If both of you have 6 as the highest then they take second highest card and so on so on ect

I don't like hi/low games. I think it's a bit stupid to split the pot in two and have people going for different pots at the same time. But I do understand the idea of a lo pot so maybe I can explain it to you.

The best lo hand has the lowest numerical value with as few duplicated cards as possible. The best hand is therefore A2345 since straights do not count in a lo hand. The next best is a2346, then a2356. Ace is always low so it doesn't matter if you have an ace and your opponent doesn't. It's the highest card that counts.

so 23456 beats a2358 cos six is lower than eight. 24567 beats 23458 cos 7 is lower than 8. If both hands share the highest card then the next highest counts. A2457 beats A3567 cos 5 is lower than 6.

I hope this is clear.

yeah i think i got it and it sux, i tought it was plain simple like in other poker games like 2 pairs aces and deuces win against 2 pair of jacks and tens, you dont have to calculate anything, and i was sadly mistaken that ace is always lower then the fuckin deuce Angry but thanks for clearing this for me

To determin the winner in low hands it is best to change the way a hand is written down:

We have

8532A

vs

65432

And a 6low is lower than a 8low.

The mirror does help in high games too. Cool

But actually the format i have written the hand in is better, because we are used to read from left to right.

I dont play Hi/lo games at cash tables. Its common that only house "win" with rake. 2 people which are involved in pot split cash and both loose some money. I play only tournaments (mixed games) where those type of games are.
