I was playing the poker game and I had a wrap-around straight. My had was 23QKA. It was the highest hand for that round, but the game said it was a high card. Now by all rules that I know of, that is a legal straight. Is this a bug, oversight, or something else?

I had no idea that was a recognizable straight. However straights in this game is programmed as A2345 or 10AJKQ etc.

There are no slightly modified rules in this version of poker though...........

I found it buried in the documentation that the game does not recognize wrap-around straits as, according to Hoyle's logic, the Ace is serving as both a 1 and an 11 or something.

Thanks for your feedback on our game. While there will be no updates for this version, we can go ahead and use this feedback for our next version of the game that includes Blackjack.

This had nothing to do with blackjack. The game in question is poker.
