32 card draw poker

This game is particularly exciting because all the lower cards from 2 to 6 are removed from the deck, so you end up with a lot of high cards, and it's easier to get three of a kind or a full house. Keep that in mind when you're playing - your hand might be great, but so are your opponents' hands! This game is played with 2 to 5 players.

To prevent players from entering games in a late position to avoid placing blinds, you will have to post an initial fee, equal to the over blind, or you can sit out and wait until the over blind reaches your position. If you checked Wait For Big Blind when you took your seat, then you will appear to be sitting out and won't be able to join the action until the over blind comes around to your position.

If you were at the table and then sat out for a while, if you missed the small blind in your absence, you will have to post an amount equivalent to the big blind. If you missed the small and big blind, you will be required to post an amount equal to the big blind plus a 'dead' bet equal to the small blind, which goes straight into the pot and doesn't count as a player's bet for that hand. If you miss all three blinds while sitting out, you have to post the equivalent of the over blind, plus a dead bet equal to the small blind plus the big blind.

All players are dealt 5 cards face down. There are no community cards in this game.

The first player to the left of the over blind (or the big blind if there was no over blind) starts the betting, which then continues in a clockwise fashion. All players must at least match the amount in of the over blind in order to remain in the hand.

You will see the following options, depending on what the players before you have done:

Fold: Leave the game, forfeiting anything you put in the pot in the form of blinds or bets.

Check: You can check if no one else has put in more money than you. If you posted the over blind (or big blind if there was no over blind) then everyone else has to put in enough money to match your contribution. If someone has raised, you won't have the option to check.

Call: This brings the amount of your bet up to the level of the highest bet so far. For example, if you put in the big blind of 4.00, and someone else put in the over blind of 8.00, when the action comes around to you, you can call by putting in another 4.00 to match the largest bet so far of 8.00. If you didn't put in a blind at all, you would have to add the entire 8.00.

Raise: The minimum allowed bet size in No Limit is equal to the big blind if no action has occurred in this betting round. If action has occurred (someone else has bet) then it is equal to the size of the last bet/raise. The raise amount must be at least as much as the previous bet or raise in the same round. As an example, if the first player to act bets 10 then the second player must raise a minimum of 10 (total bet of 20). As the term No Limit suggests, the maximum eligible raise is all the chips you've brought to the table (i.e., you can go all-in). Then all players must match this new amount or fold. If someone else raises, then you can't check, but have to fold (leave this hand), call (match the amount of the largest bet), or raise (add more to the bet, which everyone else must match).

There is no limit to the number of raises in 32 card draw poker.
