Per previous ruling, during lowball there were situations in which a player had their hand rank raised or lowered. In a situation in which your hand rank was raised, it would become the lowest hand possible for that hand rank. For instance, for 2 pair, this would be, A-A-2-2-3. In a situation in which your hand was lowered, the ruling placed your hand at the highest possible for that hand rank. For instance, if your hand was lowered to High card, it would be K-Q-J-10-8.
This ruling was never placed into the rulebook. What was placed is the section under shootouts:
"When a card effect increases your hand rank, it is considered to be the worst possible hand of its
new rank unless it is changed to a rank of 11 or above, in which case treat it as rank 11 and equal
to all other rank 11 hands. When a card effect reduces your hand rank, it is considered to be the
best possible hand of its new rank unless it falls below rank 1, in which case it is treated as the
worst possible rank 1 hand."
Rules team is evaluating how this will be interpreted for Lowball.
Any changes will go into effect for the next round-up (Greenhorn) and Marshall Event (Oct 3) along with subsequent hosted Savage Lands Series round-ups and the next set of round-ups.
