How does Three Card Poker works?

Are you curious about how Three Card Poker works? Well, let me tell you, it’s not rocket science. In fact, it’s a pretty straightforward game that even your grandma could play (although, we don’t recommend gambling with grandma’s retirement fund).

So, how does it work? Let’s break it down.

First, you place your bet on the Ante circle on the table. Then, the dealer deals three cards to each player and themselves. The goal of the game is to have a better hand than the dealer.

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. You have two options: you can either fold and lose your Ante bet, or you can make a Play bet that’s equal to your Ante bet. If you choose to make the Play bet, the dealer reveals their cards and the winner is determined.

But wait, there’s more! There are also bonus bets you can make, like the Pair Plus bet. This bet is based solely on the rank of your hand, regardless of whether you beat the dealer or not. So, if you have a pair or better, you win!

Now that you know the basics, let’s talk strategy. The optimal strategy is to always make the Play bet if you have Queen-6-4 or better. If you have anything less than that, it’s best to fold.
