MCU poker tip: Strange fact about ace-to-five

You’re playing ace-to-five lowball. As is traditional, there’s a joker in the deck. You’re less likely to be dealt a pat six-four (6-4-3-2-A) than a pat bicycle (5-4-3-2-A). The odds are 1400-1 against a six-four; 1245-1 against a bicycle. The reason is that when you have 4-3-2-A and a joker, the joker always serves as a five, never a six.
