Three Card Poker
 
Three card poker is a fun and fast paced casino game that appeals to professional poker players and novices alike.  Like a traditional game of poker, three card poker includes an array of winning hands and real money bets. But unlike classic poker, the game is played between the player and the dealer alone. Many three card poker fans play their favorite game at online casinos.  Hereís how it works:
 
How to Play
 
A game of three card poker is divided into two main parts: Pair Plus and Ante and Play.  The first part of the game, Pair Plus, is essentially a bet that your first three card hand is going to include a pair (two cards of the same value).  Before you get your cards, you can decide how much youíd like your Pair Plus wager to be.  You also have the option to place whatís known as an Ante bet, which will allow you to play the second part of the game. 
 
Once the cards are dealt and winnings are collected, the first part of the game is over.
The next part of the game is called Ante and Play.  If you have a good hand, and you think it might beat the dealerís, you can now opt to place a Play bet.  If your hand is less than fantastic you can skip this part of the game, and forfeit the amount of the Ante bet you placed. If you do choose to play Part 2, the dealer will now reveal his cards.  If your hand beats the dealerís, you win the game.
 
What Makes a Good Hand?
 
What does a good hand actually consists of?  Hereís a list of the highest ranking hands in a game of three card poker:
 
High Card - your cards have a higher rank than the dealer
Pair - two cards of equal rank
Flush - three cards of the same suit
Straight - three consecutive cards of different suits
Three of a Kind - three cards of equal rank
Straight Flush - three cards, same suit, consecutive order
