    The Ace is the highest ranked card, but it can be used as a low card as part of a "wheel" straight (A-2-3-4-5).

    In Chinese Poker (as in regular poker), the wheel straight is the lowest straight. This is different than Pai-Gow, where the wheel may be considered the second highest straight (it only loses to T-J-Q-K-A).
