When it comes to Three Card Poker, as we mentioned, there are 2 games being played. The Pair Plus game is purely a game of chance. You simply compare your hand to the winning combination on the payout table and pray for luck. There is no poker strategy of drawing additional cards or raising your bet involved.
However, with the Ante and Play game, you are playing against the dealer. This allows you to work a little strategy into your game, potentially increasing your odds!
Here are some easy strategies to remember:
If you have a winning poker hand, such as a pair or three of a kind, a flush, or a straight, you should definitely play because your odds of winning Ante and Play are very high.
If you do not have a winning poker hand, you should play anyway if you have a hand of Queen-6-4 or better. So, what constitutes a a Queen-6-4 or better?
Poker hands are ranked according to the highest card. So, in 3 Card Poker, the second card, and then the third, are examined only to break a tie.
For example, a King-5-3 would beat a Queen-6-4 based on the high card; there is no need to look further. If both high cards are the same, such as a Queen-7-2 and Queen-6-4, the Queen-7-2 would win. Here, the high cards tie, and the second card breaks the tie, so there is no need to look at the third card.
Opting to play with a Queen-6-4 or better has been mathematically proven to be the optimal three-card poker strategy, which will give you the best chance to win 3-card poker consistently.
