# How to Play 4 Card Poker?

## What is 4 card poker and how to play it?

4 card poker, or Four card poker, is a game that Mr Roger Snow developed. This game is very similar to three-card poker in the aspects of gameplay. The game starts with the player posting a blind or an ante bet. The player can also post an ace-up bet instead of blind people, the ante bet or along with blind people or the ante bet. The dealer then goes on to deal 5 cards to the player.

The dealer then deals 6 cards to themselves, with 5 cards face down and 1 card facing up. After the dealer has dealt all the cards, the player can either fold their cards, lose blind people or the ante bet or continue to play the game by betting an amount which is 1-3 times blind people or the ante bet.

The player and the dealer must make the best 4-card hand combination with the cards dealt to them. The winner is determined by comparing the hand combinations of the player and the dealer. In a tie between the player and the dealer, the player wins the money in the pot. If the player beats the dealer, the player wins the money in the pot. If the player loses to the dealer, the dealer wins the money in the pot. A bonus is given out to the player if they end up getting the following hand combinations-

·         Three of a kind (2-1 for blind people or the ante bet)

·         Straight Flush (20-1)

·         Four of a kind (25-1)

A bonus is also paid if the dealer’s hand combination is better than the player playing against them. But, the player still loses their blind or ante bet.

## Hand combinations

The hand combinations to use when players play 4 card poker are a little different compared to the other versions and variations of the game. Instead of 10 hand combinations to use in a game of poker, this variation offers only 8 of them, with four of a kind being the highest hand combination in the game. These hand combinations in the order of the highest to the lowest are-

1. Four-of-a-kind- This is the third-highest-hand combination a player can get when they play 4-card poker. In this hand combination, 4 out of the 5 cards in the hand combination should be of the same rank. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 10 (10), rank 2 (2), rank 2 (2), rank 2 (2) and rank 2 (2) is regarded as a four-of-a-kind.

2.       Straight Flush- This is the second-highest-hand combination a player can get when they play 4-card poker. In this hand combination, all the cards should be in sequential order. All the cards should be of the same suit. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 6 (6), rank 5 (5), rank 4 (4), rank 3 (3) and rank 2 (2), all of the suit spades, is regarded as a straight flush.

3.       Three of a Kind- This is the seventh highest hand combination a player can do when they play 4 card poker. In this hand combination, 3 out of the 5 cards in the hand combination should be of the same rank. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 10 (10), rank 5 (2), rank 3 (3), rank 3 (3) and rank 3 (3) is regarded as a three-of-a-kind.

4.       Flush- This is the fifth-highest-hand combination a player can do when they play 4-card poker. In this hand combination, all the cards should be of the same suit. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 5 (5), rank 3 (3), rank 10 (10), rank 2 (2) and Ace (A), all of the suit diamonds, are regarded as a flush.

5.       Straight- This is the sixth-highest-hand combination a player can get when they play 4-card poker. This is the second-highest hand combination a player can get in a poker game. In this hand combination, all the cards should be in sequential order. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 10 (10), rank 9 (9), rank 8 (8), rank 7 (7) and rank 6 (6) is regarded as a straight flush.

6.       Two Pair- This is the eighth highest hand combination a player can get when they play 4 card poker. In this hand combination, there should be 2 pairs in the hand combination. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 7 (7), rank 7 (7), rank 3 (3), rank 9 (9) and rank 8 (8) is regarded as a two pair.

7.       Pair- This is the ninth-highest hand combination a player can get when they play 4-card poker. In this hand combination, 2 out of the 5 cards in the hand combination should be of the same rank. The suit does not matter in this hand combination. For example, a hand combination of cards of rank 9 (9), rank 2 (2), rank 5 (5), rank 3 (3) and rank 3 (3) is regarded as a pair.

8.       High Card- This is the lowest hand combination a player can get when they play 4-card poker. In this hand combination, there is no relation between any cards. The highest card of this hand combination is compared with all the other high cards or hand combinations of the other players.
