How to play London lowball poker

In London Lowball Poker the lowest five-card hand wins the pot and the lowest possible hand is a Royal Six, A-2-3-4-6, since both Straights and Flushes count.

Since the Ace is used as a low card in this game, a Pair of Aces is lower, and therefore much better, than a Pair of Deuces.
