How to Play 3 Cards Poker
Not like other Poker games, like Texas Hold’em, 3 Cards Poker brings every player on attempting to defeat the dealer, by getting a better hand, rather than playing against other players.

Before any cards are dealt, players needs to make an Ante bet.
Pair Plus Betting
Players can make an additional optionally bet, called Pair Plus, which gives players payoffs on any hand with a pair or higher ranking.
Dealing the Cards
Three cards are dealt by the dealer – 3 cards for the dealer himself and 3 cards for each player.
Raise or Fold
According to their hand, players needs to choose between raising their bet with the initial ante bet, or fold and forfeit their bet.
