    No.

    There is no such thing as a wrap around straight. In a straight the ace is either the highest card or the lowest card:

    T J Q K A

    OR

    A 2 3 4 5

    There are no other straight possibilities for an ace in regular poker.

    Ha ha sadly the wrap-around straights (also known as round-the-corner or Miller straights) are not part of traditional poker hands. These hands are generally only used as special hands in private house games, but would have no advantage in a actual poker game at a casino or online poker room. Hands that you should focus on are as follows: (ranked low to highest) High Card - highest card in your hand ex. A, 10, 8, 5, 4 Ace would be your high card. Pair - 2 of the same face-value card, and any three other cards ex. J, J, Q, 8, 3 2 Jacks would be a pair. 2 Pair - having 2 different sets of same face-value cards and one other card. ex. J, J, Q, Q, 5 The pair of Jacks, and pair of Queens would be 2 Pair 3 of a kind - having 3 cards of same face-value and two other cards ex. J, J, J, K, 10 The three Jacks = 3 of a kind Straight - any 5 consecutive cards (not same suit). A straight may be Ace low ex. A, 2, 3, 4, 5 or a straight may be Ace high ex. 10, J, Q, K, A a wrap-around is not a valid straight ex. K, A, 2, 3, 4 Flush - having 5 cards all of the same suit. (non-consecutive) ex. A - hearts Q - hearts J - hearts 6 - hearts 3 - hearts This would be an Ace-High Straight (very strong) Full House - having a pair, AND 3 of a kind at the same time ex. J, J, Q, Q, Q The Jacks would be your pair, and the Queens your 3 of a kind (also known as Jacks over Queens or a Full-Boat) Four of a Kind - having four cards with same face value ex. 8, 8, 8, 8, J The four 8's are a four of a kind Straight Flush - having a straight, but with ALL cards of the same suit ex. 10 - hearts 9 - hearts 8 - hearts 7 - hearts 6 - hearts Highest possible hand in poker (unbeatable) The ROYAL FLUSH - having an Ace-high straight with the same suit ex. A - spades K - spades Q - spades J - spades 10 - spades Hope this helps you in your future poker playing... Feel free to check out my websites for more poker related news and articles

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't count as a straight. I know some who play 500 rummy that way. But, in poker, it is an "Ace-high hand," nothing else.

    No sorry. Can't cross the ace. Up to or up from.

    There is one variation I've heard of that counts it, but in general, no.
