Win the pool more often than all the other players
Dealer puts an ante into the center of the table, then deal three cards to each player.
Rotating counter-clockwise, each player looks at their cards, and then chooses to ante up, raise the bet, or drop out. Players, who have already bet, must match the new ante or drop out.
Taking the pool
Betting is complete when all players (who haven‘t dropped out) have put in matching bets. The player with the best hand takes the pool. If two players have equal hands, the pool is split between them.
- Highest Value
- Pair Royale | Three of a kind. If two players have a Pair Royale, the higher face value is the winner.
- Pair | Two of a kind. If two players have the same pair, the face value of the third card determines the winner.
- High Card | If no pairs are in play, the winner is determined by the card with the highest face value.
- Lowest Value
