Four Card Poker: Rules And Strategy

Four card poker is a new casino poker variation. Like Caribbean poker
pai gow poker and three card poker
the game takes place between each player and the dealer. Four card poker is similar to three card poker. The object of the game is to beat the dealers four card hand by forming the best four card hand as possible. Like in three card poker
there is an option of placing an additional bet
which pays out according to a pay table
regardless of the dealer’s hand.

Rules of Four Card Poker:
This poker game is played with a standard 52 card deck. The game is played on a table about the same size of a blackjack table with three circles in front of each player seat: Aces Up
Ante and 1x to 3x Ante. Each circle signals one of the betting options available in the game.
The game begins with each of the players decides whether to place a bet on the Ante circle
the Aces up circle or both. A player who chooses to play both games is required to place bets in even amounts in both circles.
The dealer deals each player five face down card from which the players choose the best four cards to form the highest possible four card poker hand
according to the hand ranking listed below. The dealer deals himself five face down cards and one face up card. As opposed to three card poker
in four card poker the dealers hand does not have to qualify.
After the cards are dealt
each player looks at his cards and can decide whether to fold or raise. A player who chooses to fold
loses both of his bets. A player who chooses to raise
has to raise to at least the same amount of the Ante bet and up to three times the Ante. After all the players have made their decisions
the dealer exposes his cards and chooses the four of the best cards out of six.
If the dealers hand is higher than the players hand
the player loses all his bets. If the players hand is higher than the dealers hand or equal
he is paid 1:1. If a players hand value is three of a kind or better
he will be entitled to a bonus payout based on a paytable regardless to the value of the dealers hand. The bonus paytable can vary from one casino to another. Usually
the highest possible hand
four of a kind
pays 25:1.
