    Default straight riddle

    We were talking about this in our home game tonight.

    What's the only straight that you can't get when holding 5T?

    Spoiler:
    A nine-high straight.

    EVERY straight contains either a 5 or a T. There are NO exceptions.

    but you have the T in your hand so all 9 high straights are automatically T high straights once you count your pocket T

    I jumped right into that one, didn't I?

    ***
    Reminds me of this:

    I have 2 American coins in my hand that total 35 cents. One of them is not a dime.
    What coins do I have?

    A quarter and a dime.
