can a "low straight flush" hand beat "4 aces" in poker?

i know a Royal Flush or a.k.a. High Straight Flush (10 - J - Q - K - A) is the best possible hand, but if the straight hand contains low numbers/cards :

player A : 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7

player B : 4 Aces

who wins?

    Player A would most certainly win since straight flush ranks higher than Four of a Kind.

    ANY straight flush beats 4-of-a-kind in Poker, regardless of what the "high card" in the hand is.

    In your example, Player A (w/ the Straight Flush) beats Player B (w/ 4-of-a-kind), even though Player B has all aces.

    The only time the "high card" comes into play if both players have the same type of hand.

    > If Player A has 4 Jacks to Player B's 4 Aces, Player B would win on the high card (J vs A).

    > If Player A has 7-High Straight Flush (7-6-5-4-3) to Player B's 10-High Straight Flush (10-9-8-7-6), Player B would win on the high card (7 vs 10).

    A high straight flush beats a low straight flush.

    But even the lowest possible straight flush still beats everything else.

    A straight beats four of a kind.  A straight flush beats everything, but a higher straight flush.
