Straight poker is a classic and simple form of poker where players are dealt a single hand and bet on it until a winner is declared. However, there are many synonyms for this common poker game. Some of the synonyms include five-card draw, aces-to-five, lowball, and stud poker. Five-card draw is a variant that allows players to swap cards in their hand to try and improve their hand. Ace-to-five uses a different ranking system, where aces are low and straights and flushes do not count. Lowball is another variant where the goal is to have the lowest hand possible. Stud poker is a type of poker where players are dealt a mixture of face-up and face-down cards.

How to use "Straight poker" in context?

Playing poker without any of the common illicit cards like jacks, queens, and kings is often called "straight poker". It's a relatively simple game to learn, but unfortunately it can be a bit of a grind if you're not playing regularly.

The aim of straight poker is to take as few cards as possible to reach a hand of five cards, with no pair or three of a kind. A three of a kind is the best hand, and you can only win if the other player blanks, or worse.

There are a few basic strategies you can use to improve your chances of success.
