We just talked about how Z is played as a
high low eight game. That means that the high
hand and the low hand can take each half of
the pot. It is possible to have both the best
high hand and the best low hand if you can
pull that off you do what is called scooping.
You’re going to take the whole pot you’re
going to scoop the pot, let’s show an example
of that. Here this player his best hand is
a set of nines but unfortunately his opponent
has a flush king of spades, three of spades
and deuce of spades from his down cards then
there’s two of spades on the board.
Then he also has the best low hand I’m trading
out this eight for the king so instead of
half of the pot he scoops the whole pot.
