Playing Three Card Poker

As its name implies, Three Card Poker is played with only 3 cards. It is really two games in one: “Pair Plus” and “Ante and Play”. The player can choose to play either one or both games in each round. One of the game’s biggest attractions for poker players who want a relaxing game is that there is no continuous betting as in most poker games.

In the “Pair Plus” game, the player places his initial bet in the center of the table, three cards are dealt to him and to the dealer. A pair or better wins. If there are no pairs, then the hand with the highest card wins.

In “Ante and Play”, the player places an ante bet in addition to his initial bet before he receives his cards. If the player believes that his hand is better than the dealer’s, he can raise by placing an additional bet equivalent to the ante bet. In order to meet the player, the dealer must have a qualifying hand, meaning that he must be holding at least a queen high combination or better. If the dealer’s hand does not qualify, the player wins. If it does qualify, the hand with the highest value wins.
