2 Card Poker is an exciting game where players are dealt four cards and play their best two card poker hand. 2 Card Poker is dealt from a 52 card deck with conventional values.
Rules of Play
To begin play, all players must make an Ante wager.
Players may also make an optional 2 Card Bonus and/or 4 Card Bonus wager.
Each player and the dealer will be dealt four cards to make the best two card poker hand. Hand rankings are as follows:
Pairs (A’s – 2’s); then
Straight Flushes (A/K suited is high and A/2 suited is low); then
Flushes (A/Q suited is high and 2/4 suited is low); then
High card if no flush (straights have no value)
The player may inspect their hand and then choose from the following options:
Fold the hand. A player that folds will forfeit the Ante and throw in all four cards. If the player made the 4 Card Bonus bet, the player will tuck the two cards of their choice under the 4 Card Bonus and is still eligible for payouts.
Make a Call Bet equal to the Ante wager. If a Call Bet is made, then remaining players will discard the two cards not used for their two card poker hand.
The dealer must qualify to play with a minimum Jack high flush. In the event the dealer does not hold a qualifying hand, the Call Bet will receive no action (push) and the Ante will be paid even money.
The dealer will pay the Ante and Call Bet even money if the player’s hand outranks the dealer’s qualifying hand.
The Ante and Call Bet will push when the player’s hand ties the dealer’s hand.
The 2 Card Bonus is paid odds when players receive a pair of 7’s or higher and is based off the player’s two card poker hand only.
The 4 Card Bonus is paid odds when players have two pair or better and is based off the player and dealer’s combined two card poker hands only. Straights do not apply.
A paytable listing all payouts for both Bonus bets will be posted at the table along with the minimum and maximum betting limits.
