Three card poker

Related Games


  • Three Card Poker, also called TriCard Poker, is a poker-based game that has lately become fairly in style. In fact, it consists of two separate games, PairPlus and Ante and Raise. The players can decide to play either or both of the games.
  • The object in the Ante and Raise portion is to receive a higher 3-card poker hand than the Dealer.
  • The object of the Pair Plus game is purely to bet on whether you will receive a 3-card poker hand with any pair or better.

Card Values

  • Cards are ranked from 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,1 0, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, with 2 being the lowest and Ace being the highest.


This is a simple game in which you get 3 cards. The Pair Plus is won if the Player's hand is dealt a pair or higher. The Pair Plus bet is a separate wager that is not measured against the Dealer's hand, it is paid out based on the rank of the hand dealt. If the Player bets on the Ante and Folds the hand the Pair Plus wager is also sacrificed.

Ante and Raise

This is the second game, somewhat more complex. After placing an Ante bet the Player is dealt 3 cards face up and the Dealer receives 3 cards face down. If the Player does not consider that his hand can beat the Dealer's, the Player can Fold the hand and the amount gambled is lost.

If the Player considers that his hand can beat the Dealer's hand, he must Call, rising the bet with an amount equal to the Ante. After raising, the Dealer will divulge his cards. If the Dealer has a Queen or higher it will then compare its hand to the Player, the winner being the highest ranked poker hand.

If the Dealer has the highest hand the Player loses both the Ante and Call bets. If the Dealer does not have at least a Queen, the Dealer does not compare hands. The Player is paid 1:1 on the Ante bet and the Call amount is returned as a Push. If the Player has a straight or better, the Player is paid an Ante bonus according to the rules.
