Object of Three Card Poker
To beat the dealers hand. If you are playing Pair Plus, you'll need to achieve a
pair or better in order to make a winning hand.
How to Play Three Card Poker
There are two games in the
game of Three Card Poker.
There is the regular game and a side game called Pair Plus.
Usually you will find players playing the regular game or both, but
some players prefer just to play Pair Plus. The regular game
involves some strategy, but Pair Plus requires none and there are no
player decisions beyond placing the initial wager.
Okay, lets start with the easier
game first. Pair Plus will require you to place your chips on
the Pair Plus circle on the table. You can place wagers of
$1 to $500 depending on the online
casino. If you are only playing Pair Plus, you may push deal
and the cards are dealt out. After this, there is nothing you
can do to increase or decrease the amount of money you will win.
Once all the cards have been dealt out, you will be paid according
to the pay table. Pay outs will depend on what you have.
A pair will double your money, a flush will pay you out 4:1, a
straight is 6:1, a three of a kind is 30:1 and a straight flush will
pay you out 40:1.
The regular game requires a bit of
skill, a little know how and sometimes a bit of balls. Much
like Pair Plus, you will place your bet on the table, but on the
Ante circle instead. You will be able to wager $1 and $500
depending on which online casino you are playing Three Card
Your three cards will be dealt out. You will now have to
decide whether or not you want to fold or play the hand. If
you fold, you will lose everything regardless of the dealer's hand.
If you play, you will be placing an additional wager equal to your
ante. Once you have decided, the dealer's cards will be
If the dealer has a Queen or
better he will qualify. If the dealer doesn't have at least a
Queen or better than he will not qualify. If the dealer does
not qualify, all players that did not fold their hands during the
regular game will have there funds refunded (a push). If the
dealer qualifies, you will need to have a better hand than the
dealer to win. If not you will lose your bets. If so,
you will be paid out 1:1 on your ante and play bets. You will
also be paid out any additional ante bonuses based on the pay table
below. It does not matter if the dealer qualifies or not, all
ante bonus pay outs will be rewarded. Tri-Card Poker and Poker

3 Card Poker Strategy
Some things to consider while
playing three card poker is that you do not want to place a play bet
on all your hands. It is recommended that if you do not have
queen or better, that you fold your ante bet. You should look
for a game that pays out 4:1 for a three of a kind and 5:1 for a
straight flush. Also if you seem
to be having a great playing session, you should play both Pair Plus
and the regular game to take advantage of a good set of hands.
