A hand whose ranking is determined solely on the basis of the greatest card value held because it does not contain a pair, two pair, three of a kind, a straight, a flush, a full house, four of a kind, or a straight flush; in the hierarchy of hand values, the hand ranking immediately below a pair.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: When no player has a hand ranking above a high card, the hand with the highest card wins.
EXAMPLE: "I missed the flop and quickly folded when an opponent bet. I knew there was no way my high card would win."
