Before getting to the subject matter, it’s necessary to understand what 3 card Poker is and what are the basic rules of the game. A gambler plays against a dealer, and before the round starts, a gambler should place the bet “Ante”. There’s a chance to make a bonus bet “Pair Plus”, as well. Then 3 cards are dealt, and there can be 2 decisions, depending on 3 card Poker hands on the table: a player can drop the cards or to make a bet (Call).
When the bets are made, a dealer opens the cards, and if there’s a Pair Plus bet and the combination is not less than a Pair, a banker pays the gain in accordance to the payout table. In the contrary case, the bet is lost. Then a dealer opens own cards and if there’s no game (all cards are smaller than Queen), a player gets Ante at double rate. If a dealer has a combination, but a gambler has better hand, a casino pays out Ante and Bet with the odds 1:1, or depending on the odds chart.

As long as all participants receive just 3 cards and there’s not an option of making an exchange, there are not as many combinations, as Texas Holdem Poker (for example) has. The order of possible combinations from high to low are represented below.
- Straight Flush – 3 cards of the same suit, which “follow each other”. This is the top of 3 card Poker hands.
