How to play Poker Three: Tutorial – Tips and guide

Rate this post

PAIR PLUS
This is a simple game where you place a bet, receive a hand and get paid according to your hand. The dealer’s hand is irrelevant. There is no raising or no discarding. To play the game:

  • Click on a chip of desired value to select it. Then move your cursor to the middle of the screen over the area “Pair Plus Bet” and click on it. Every click on the area adds one chip to the bet. Select another chip if you wish to increase the bet by some other amount.
  • Click the Deal button.
  • You receive your hand and your winnings, if any. Click New Game to start a new game round, then Re bet, to place the same bet as in the previous round.

Here is the winnings table for Pair Plus:

Pair 1 to 1
Flush 4 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
Three of a Kind 30 to 1
Straight Flush 40 to 1

ANTE AND PLAY
This is the second game, slightly more complicated. To play the game:

  • First, place an ante. This is done just like placing a Pair Plus bet, except you click on the “Ante” field, not the “Pair Plus Bet” field.
  • Click the Deal button.
  • After viewing your hand, decide whether you want to Fold (and lose your ante) or Call (place another bet that equals your ante and see the dealer’s hand). Click on either Fold or Call button. If you fold, you also lose your Pair Plus Bet, if one was made. However, if your Pair Plus Bet paid anything, it is not likely that you want to fold.
  • If you Call, your hand is now compared to the dealer’s hand. The dealer needs a Queen or better to qualify. Here are the possible outcomes:
    • Dealer does not qualify: Ante wins 1 to 1, play bet is returned
    • Dealer qualifies and player beats dealer: Both play and ante win 1 to 1
    • Dealer qualifies and dealer beats player: Both play and ante lose
    • Dealer qualifies and dealer ties player: Both play and ante push

In addition the Ante bet has an extra bonus that does not depend on the dealer’s hand:

Straight 1xAnte
Three of Kind 4xAnte
Straight Flush 5xAnte

PLEASE NOTE:
Aces play both high and low to a straight. Straight beats flush as there are fewer ways to make a straight with three cards.

  • Click New Game to start a new game round, then Re bet to place the same bet as in the previous round.
