How to Use Steel Wheel as Part of Your Poker Strategy

The steel wheel has a very high chance of being the best hand in almost every poker variant. This is because it is a type of straight flush and happens to be one of the hardest hands to make.

It is also the nut low hand in split pot variants such as Omaha hi/lo, Stud hi/lo and the nuts in Razz. 

Knowing nicknames such as “steel wheel” is not especially important, but we might find ourselves feeling left out of a poker discussion if we don’t know the term.
