Before the Hand

Each player must ante.

The Hand

Each player starts with a 2-card hand. If you play until the end the hand, you will finish with 5 cards in your hand, 4 face-up and 1 face-down.

There are no community cards unless the dealer runs short of cards at the end. In this case, instead of giving each player his/her own card at the end, a community card will be dealt.

The Play

1- Each player is dealt 2 cards, one face down ("hole card") and one face-up ("up card").
2- The lowest card starts the betting with a "bring in". The "bring in" is a forced bet with no option of checking or folding. This first betting round proceeds at the lower betting limit. Click here for more information on a forced bet.
3- The dealer gives each remaining player a 2nd up card
4- The second betting round proceeds at the lower betting limit. However, if any player's two up cards make a pair, then any bettor may make a bet equal to the higher betting limit. From this point on the higher limit is in effect for the entire hand.
5- The dealer gives each remaining player a 3rd up card
6- The 3rd betting round proceeds with the higher betting limit
7- The dealer gives each remaining player a 4th up card
8- The 4th and final betting round proceeds with the higher betting limit
9- Showdown

Order of Play

Action begins with the "bring-in" and proceeds clockwise. For all subsequent rounds, action starts with the highest exposed hand and proceeds clockwise.

The Showdown


At the Showdown the high hand wins. Each player must use all five cards from his/her hand.
