About Three Card Poker
Three Card Poker is a fast-paced and easy-to-understand card game that is played against the dealer. It is a variant of traditional poker, designed to maximize excitement and speed while maintaining strategic decision-making. With its simple rules and a combination of skill and luck, Three Card Poker is suitable for both seasoned players and beginners.
How to Play
To start playing Three Card Poker, each player must place an Ante bet on the table. The dealer then distributes three cards face-down to each player and themselves. The objective is to make a better three-card poker hand than the dealer.
The Ante and Play
After examining their cards, players can choose to either fold and forfeit their Ante bet, or continue playing by making a Play bet, which is equal to the Ante bet.
The Pair Plus Bet
In addition to the Ante and Play bets, players have the option to place a Pair Plus bet. This bet wins if their hand contains a pair or higher, regardless of the dealer's hand.
Understanding the hand rankings is crucial for strategically making decisions in Three Card Poker. The hierarchy of hands, from highest to lowest, is as follows:
- Straight Flush
- Three of a Kind
- High Card
Winning and Payouts
If the dealer's hand does not qualify (which requires a Queen or higher), the Ante bet pays 1 to 1, and the Play bet pushes (returns without winning or losing). If the dealer qualifies and the player's hand is better, both the Ante and Play bets win and are paid according to the payout table. The Pair Plus bet pays based on the strength of the player's hand, regardless of the dealer's hand.
