ACR incorrect on Lo hand? what am i missing

by no means am I an expert in O8, or any other poker for that matter. But I'm confused as hell here. I thought straights don't matter for the Lo hand?

Was a micro H/U sng on ACR:

*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 380.00
Board [Qs 4c 2d 6c Qh]
Seat 1: ChiliLind (button) showed [5h 2s 8d 3h] and won 380.00 with HI - a straight, Six high [6c 5h 4c 3h 2d] | LO - [6,5,4,3,2]
Seat 2: Hows Your Bean? (big blind) showed [Jh Qd 8h Ah] and lost with HI - three of a kind, Set of Queens [Qs Qh Qd Ah 6c] | LO - [8,6,4,2,1]


I thought I should've won the Lo with my lowest being A, his lowest being 2?

Straights absolutely apply to the lo hand in O8. A wheel A2345 is the ultimate nut lo in O8.

Re: ACR incorrect on Lo hand? what am i missing

maybe I phrased it wrong. I didn't mean it disqualifies the low like in 2-7 triple draw.

But I thought lo's were counted from lowest to highest. meaning my A is better than his 2, making my Lo superier.

but is it the other way around? His 6 is lower than my 8, so his low is better?

thanks

Yes, that is correct.

Keep in mind that it is called Omaha 8 or better. So it is judged starting from the 8 down the Ace. His 65xxx low beats your 86xxx low.
