Yes. 2-5 is removed. They actually call it “6+”. And the Ace is high AND low. Low strait is A6789, high strait is as usual. The only difference I’ve noticed is that 3 of a kind beats a strait. My only exposure to Short Deck prior to ACR was watching on TV, & the only difference in hand rankings on TV was that a flush beats a full house. ACR also has a flush beating a full house AND 3 of a kind beating a strait. Not sure if that’s normal or not, but just an observation.
