How To Play 5 Card Draw
In Five Card Draw, if you throw away three cards, the dealer will give you
Five card draw - the quintessential game of poker that you'd see in like Western films and stuff like that, very straight forward. Each player would receive five cards, faced down. Deal them out with four players at the moment. Now, the player to the left of the dealer gets to choose first and what he gets to choose on is what cards he gets rid of and it's a draw game. When we refer to draw is you would draw more cards, try to make the best five card hand in poker. Now, here we've got a pair of eights. You'd keep the eights, throw away these three cards and you'd receive three cards, new cards from the dealer. Obviously, not face up, face down so you would see only yourself. Now, quite nicely, this guy's now made a set of eights or 3 eights, as it's called, nice hand. So, player to the left, what's he got here. Not much. You're always looking to keep big cards. You'd probably just keep the ace of hearts here, throw the rest away, not much else connected. This player would receive four cards to make up the rest of the five. Not got much, ends up with ace high, it's going to be bidding that hand. Here, now you may say you've got a bit of decision here because you've got three spades, which is possible flush draw but the chance of you getting another two spades is in your hands from the draw is very unlikely, possible but unlikely. So you'd go for a more steady approach, shall we say, and go for the pocket sixes, get rid of the rest and you get three more cards. See, no spades, hearts and a diamond and stuff, so ends up with sixes, not really a strong hand, he's going to fold. And the dealer quite strongly holding here pocket kings, he's going to like that, good, three more cards for the pocket kings, doesn't hit, ends up with just a pair of kings and you may call a bet from these, this hand here who's obviously got quite a hand in triple eights and that's five card draw. .
