How to play?

Each game uses a complete deck of cards, i.e., 52 cards. The value of the ACE depends on its position in the series, being the lowest number in Ace-2-3-4-5 or the highest in the combination 10-J-Q-K-Ace.

The Gaming Directors establish the duration and limits of the game, if any.

Games begin with a minimum of four players who are distributed around the table.

The Casino establishes the initial amount of money or Stack with which the players participate in the game and the amount of rebuys, it also establishes the minimum quantity for a new player to join the game. The player is forced to make a rebuy when the amount of remaining chips is less than the minimum required.

The croupier then places a marker or button in front of the player to the right of the player who bets first and begins the game.

The game begins

With the cards shuffled and cut, all the participants make their initial bets. Half of the minimum of the table.

There are three modes:

“SPLIT LIMIT” the first two betting intervals are played with the lowest limit and the following intervals with the highest limit.
“POT LIMIT” the bet is limited by the amount of the pot.
“NO LIMIT” the maximum bet has no limit, but it cannot be less than the authorised bet and must be visible on the board.

Betting turn

The cards must always be view of the croupier and the other players. When it is their turn to bet, a player can:

1. “FOLD” and thus indicate that they withdraw, meaning they leave the round completely. The player must place their cards face down on the board so the croupier can withdraw them.
2. “CHECK” to indicate that they don’t want to bet, but remain in the game. If another player raises, they must cover or increase their bet in order to continue playing.
3. Cover or bet an amount equal to the initial bet by placing in the Pot the same amount as the rest of the players.
4. Raise the bet made by another player by placing in the Pot a sufficient amount of chips to do so.

Every time a round of betting is completed, the croupier separates a card from the deck and places it below the Pot.

After the fourth round of betting, players reveal their cards, beginning with the player who made the last highest bet. The Pot is paid to the player with the best combination of cards, or is distributed between different players with the same winning combination in proportion to their respective stacks.
