5 Card Draw Strategy
Rules for Five Card Draw
Draw games are played with blinds, just like flop games. Each player is
dealt five hidden hole cards. The first player after the big blind has the
option to fold, call, or raise. Action continues clockwise around the table
until betting is complete for the round.
Once the first round of betting is complete, there is a draw. That is,
each player selects which (if any) cards he wishes to discard by clicking
on them. By clicking a second time on a card that you have planned to
discard, you remove it from the discard set. Discarding continues around
the table clockwise. When it is your turn to discard, you press the button
to confirm you wish to discard the selected cards.
After the first draw, there is another round of betting, beginning with
the first active player to the left of the button. So the sequence of
Five cards dealt to each player
Betting round #1, beginning with player to left of big blind
Betting round #2, beginning with player to left of button
Showdown (if necessary)
Showdown - Determining the Winner
The player with the best five-card hand wins the pot. After the pot is
awarded to the best hand, a new game of Five Draw is ready to be played.
