Any variation of poker in which players attempt to make the weakest poker hand possible rather than the strongest, in which Aces are considered low cards, and in which straights and flushes are ignored; lowball in which the best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A, regardless of suit.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The best possible hand in Ace-to-Five Lowball is 5-4-3-2-A regardless of suit, as opposed to the best possible hands 7-5-4-3-2 without a flush in Deuce-to-Seven Lowball and 6-4-3-2-A without a flush in Ace-to-Six Lowball.
EXAMPLE: "We were playing Ace-to-Five lowball, and I made a bicycle."
