What Does It Mean in Poker?

Hi-Lo refers to poker variants in which the best high hand and best qualifying low hand splits the pot. If the same player holds both the best high and best low hand, that player wins the whole pot. The most commonly played Hi-Lo games are Omaha Hi-Lo and Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo (aka Omaha 8 and Seven-Card Stud 8).
