4-card hands. Small deck. Big odds.
Great for friendly games.
- 2 to 9 players per deck
- Deck Build
- 36 cards. Ranks 2-10, Jack, Queen, King in each of the three suits. No wild cards. Remove the Aces and 1s.
- Valued Hand Size
4-card hands are valued.
Combine your hand with a set of community cards, but use only 4 of those cards.
- Beginning a Hand
- Each player begins with her bet card up. Shuffle the deck. Deal each player a hand of 3 cards. Have a round of betting. Then deal community cards.
- Community Cards
Deal 1 face-down community card, 1 face-up, then have a round of betting. Do so 3 times.
If the dealer accidentally deals a card face-up first, or reveals what should have been a face-down card, make that the face-up community card instead, and deal the next one face-down. It's not a big deal because the deck is random.
- After the last community cards are dealt and the final round of betting, the best 4-card hand wins. See winning.
