Game Description

Premium Hold’em is an exciting poker derivative where each player and the dealer receive three hole cards and share a community board of four cards, the best five card poker hand is determined between the player and dealer. Premium Hold’em is played with one standard 52-card deck of playing cards, shuffled together before play begins.

Rules of Play

  1. Play begins with the player making two mandatory, equal bets: the Ante wager and the Ante Bonus wager. In addition, they may also make the Jacks Up wager; this wager may be an amount different than the Ante bets.
  2. Each player receives three cards, face-down, as does the dealer, as well as four face-down community cards (deal board with two sets of three cards and burn the bottom card of each set leaving 4 community cards). Players may view their own cards, but may not share information about their hole cards with other players.
  3. The player makes one of two choices:
    • Check and make no wager, or
    • Make a Play wager equal to 3x the Ante wager.
  4. The dealer then reveals the four community cards, and if the player has not made a wager yet, they must make one of two choices:
    • Fold, and forfeit the Ante and Ante Bonus wager (their Jacks Up wager, if any, will still have action)
    • Make a Play wager of 1x or 2x the Ante wager.
  5. The dealer then reveals their three card hand, and the player and dealer will then make their best possible five card hand using at least one hole card and at least one of the four community cards.

    • If the dealer’s hand has tied the player’s hand, the Ante wager pushes.
    • If the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand, but the dealer’s hand is not at least one pair of threes, the Ante wager pushes.
    • If the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand, and the dealer’s hand has at least one pair of threes, the Ante wager wins, and is paid even money.
  • Next, the Ante Bonus wager is resolved as follows:
