How to Play 3 Card Blitz
3 Card Blitz combines components of several games. The blind and ante work like Ultimate Texas Hold’em. The raise works like Three Card Poker. The play of the game is closer to High Card Flush.
The player makes an equal ante and blind bet. There is an optional side bet that pays when the player makes four or more suited cards. It is called ‘Flush Bonus’.
Once players have made an ante and blind, seven cards are dealt to each player and the dealer. The player looks at the cards and determines the highest count for each suit in the hand, using at most, three cards. The player determines whether to raise or fold based on the amount of this number. A raise is equal to the ante.
A fold relinquishes the ante and blind bets. Side bets stay alive.
Aces count as 11. Face cards are worth ten points. Number cards are worth face value.
The dealer determines the value of the house hand, taking the highest flush count, using no more than three cards. If the dealer beats the player, the house wins the ante, blind and raise. If the house and player have the same point value, these bets push.
If the player beats the dealer, the ante and raise are paid even money. The blind is paid even with bonuses on hands of 26 and higher, as well as flushed runs.
