Where and when did they strip the deck?

The Hand rankings in Short Deck Hold’em
A flush holds over the full house
A set of three is higher than a straight.
Unusual eh? But it is sensible in this case.
About the other cards
Four cards are fewer in every suit. Which translates into a higher probability of a straight draw. So it’s clear that there are fewer gaps between the rest of the cards and it is more probable to hit a straight over a set of three.
Therefore it is simpler to hit a set of trips in Basic Texas Hold’em. Once a player is dealt pocket pairs there are only 2 out of 34 cards to deal out a set as compared to the 52-card deck.
So the highest straight remains the same. The Broadway straight is T-J-Q-K-A but the lowest straight is now A-6-7-8-9. The ace replaces the 5 here.
