The highest card shall be the only card that decides who the winner is:
1. Royal Flush
- The lowest of the high hands! All cards are in the same suite, with the exception of J, Q, K and Ten. A player shall have a choice between doctors, lovers, countires, adepts,earchirs, Communards, tonights, voisins,oisins dans le blends etc. In the event that two players have hands whose rank closely, the player holding the next highest card is the winner. The rank of the cards does not matters. For example, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are the same rank as 8 and 9. The same rule applies to ‘doubles’ such as 8, 9, 10, and Jack. The same rule applies to ‘imes’ such as 3, 4, 5, 6.
- A wise player will choose not to play any hand that has already been played. On the other hand, you should be wary of two players’ choice of the same hand, as the chance of them having a high card, high pair, or AK etc. tightens up the stakes quite considerably.
Best 2 Card Trade
With the 2 Card Trade, you give your opponents two cards. You get two cards of your choice (usually from 8-10). Your opponents get two cards of their choice (usually from 2-4).
The most popular of all two card trade games. The aim of the game is to either completely, or partially surrender. Each player is dealt seven cards and places seven bets. The two cards you give your opponent are then turned over, with the first five showing in your hand and the last five in your opponent’s hand. Betting begins with the player with the highest cards showing. If these cards are the same, you both take a ‘loss’ of half your stake. A win on your part will also bring you a profit equal to your original stake. If you opponent also has a winning hand, the game ends in a tie. This is also called a “push”.
Satellites are not created to be played for money, they are created to allow both players to get a feel of the other’s hand and enjoy themselves. You may well lose your money, but as long as you remember the excitement of the game, you will get a lot more out of it than you give.
