the 3 on the board counterfeits the one in your hand, so you use A7 and the board to create a low, whereas he uses his 2 4 to make a smaller low.

To read the low, use the 5 lowest cards in your hand (including the board and you must use 2 cards from your pocket cards), then read them in descending order.

86543 is a better low than 8732A

A 3 is on the board so you are playing ace 7, villian plays 2 4. For the low hand, you work from the worst card back so your 7 lost to his 4
