High Hand

What Does It Mean in Poker?

The High Hand is the best hand in any round of poker. Some casinos pay jackpots for hourly high hands, meaning that the person who makes the best overall hand that hour (usually at least a full house) wins the jackpot. 

In Hi-Lo games (such as Omaha Hi-Lo), the high hand will split each pot with the low hand.
