The game starts when each player participating in the game makes the ante bet. The player is then afforded Three (3) down cards in their hand and One (1) face up card positioned in a designated area in front of the player of that card. The player then decides to stay in the game by making the “call” bet or the player can fold the hand (when the player folds the hand by not making the appropriate bet, the player is out of the game for the remainder of that hand). After the player makes the “call” bet the Player is then afforded another card dealt face up in a designated area in front of that player. This now gives the player a Five (5) card poker hand.
