Three Card Poker Hands:
The feature that makes this game so much more appealing to newcomers above the other poker games is the number of hands you will encounter is reduced making the game fast paced and exciting.
In Three or Tri Card Poker you are dealt three cards face up in which your poker hand is to be made of. No more cads are dealt so the hands are as follows from best to worst.
(3 cards in sequential order all of the same suit. Example: 7 , 8 , 9 all in the diamonds suit)
THREE OF A KIND
(3 cards that are the same denomination. Example: 5 of Spades, 5 of Hearts, and 5 of Clubs)
(3 Cards in numerical order regardless of the suits. Example: 8 of Spades, 9 of Diamonds , 10 of Hearts)
(3 Cards of the same suit. Example: Queen of clubs, 3 of Clubs, 7 of Clubs)
(2 of the 3 Cards are the same denomination. Example: 6 of Spades, 6 of Hearts, and any other card)
(Of your three cards dealt you count the high card first (aces are high) and next highest. Example: King, 8, 2)
One of the many great aspects about playing 3 Card Poker is the dealers will be willing to help you out with your hands. This game really creates a great camaraderie. I have noticed that at time the three card table can be more noisy and exciting than the Roulette Tables.
Don’t forget the best way to get comfortable with the poker hands is to play the game. Many online casinos offer you the opportunity to play for free, Windows Casino and Scifi Casino are great for this.
