3 Card Poker

3 Card Poker - Rules and Game Information
The first thing that you need to know about 3 card poker is it is two games in one. You may bet different amounts and you may bet on either, one or both. Both hands are based on a three card hand.

Game 1: PairPlus
In PairPlus there is no raising and no discarding and drawing. This is an easy game to learn in which you are dealt three cards and are paid according to there value. Here is the payoff table for PairPlus.

Payoff Table for PairPlus
Straight flush 40 to 1
Three of a kind 30 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
Flush 4 to 1
Pair 1 to 1

Game 2: Ante and Play
You begin play with a bet on the ante line. Then the cards are dealt to you and you get to look at your cards. Then you make a decision you may either raise by matching the amount or your ante or you may fold. If you fold you will also lose your PairPlus wager. That will not be a big issue since if you if you made money on the PairPlus you should not fold. If you raise you go heads up against the dealer and the dealer need at least a queen high to qualify. All the possible pay offs are as follows.

- Dealer does not qualify: Ante wins 1 to 1, play bet is returned
- Dealer qualifies and player beats dealer: Both play and ante win 1 to 1
- Dealer qualifies and dealer beats player: Both Play and ante lose
- Dealer qualifies and dealer ties player: Both Play and ante push

In addition the Ante bet has an extra bonus that does not depend on the dealer's hand. This bonus pays as follows based on the ante bet.

Hand and Payoff
Straight flush 5 to 1
Three of a kind 4 to 1
Straight 1 to 1
