Each player must ante.

The Hand

Each player starts with a 3-card hand. If you play until the end the hand, you will finish with 7 cards in your hand, four face-up and three 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 three cards, two face down ("hole cards") and one face-up ("up card").
2- The lowest card starts the betting with a "bring in". The first betting round proceeds with the lower betting limit. Click here for more on forced bet and low card rankings.
