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 action is:

  1. Five cards dealt to each player

  2. Betting round #1, beginning with player to left of big blind

  3. Draw

  4. Betting round #2, beginning with player to left of button

  5. 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.
