Straight number and its relation to other invariants

We present the new invariant, the straight number of a knot. We then describe the process used to calculate the straight number of the standard knot table. We describe some of relations to hyperbolic volume and construct a new family of knots, which is a candidate for the highest volume knots with fixed number of crossings. Finally, we present some other observed relations and give conjectures.
