Run (cards)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A run is a combination of playing cards where cards have consecutive rank values. Some games, such as cribbage, specify that an ace counts as one ("ace low"); others specify that an ace counts above a King ("ace high"); yet others, such as poker, allow an ace to count either high or low.
