Teen Patti, like poker, is one of the admirable card games in India for gambling. It is played between 3-6 people with a standard deck, excluding the jokers. Three cards are dealt face down with all players. Beforehand, the players choose a flexible amount(“Boot amount”) which is collected by the dealer. This is the minimum amount to be put in the middle of the table by each player. Money in the centre keeps increasing as the game proceeds, and it’s the winner who gets it all. The winner is the one with the best hand, determined by the card rankings given below.
After giving the pot money, the game begins with three face-down cards. Now, in a clockwise direction, it’s the turn of the person adjacent to the dealer. Now the player has two alternatives either place a “blind bet,” i.e., without seeing the cards, or a “seeing bet” in which the player can play chaal or have other alternatives, depending on how far the game has been played. A blind bet maker is termed as a blind player and the one who sees the cards as a seen player.
All you require are 3-6 players, a normal deck of cards without jockers to play Teen Patti. In clash to other gamble games, Teen Patti starts with a wager amount collected from each player before the cards are dealt. Each player is dealt three cards face down after placing a stake and collecting the same amount from all players. The boot is the smallest amount of money at stake kept in the pot and placed in the centre.
After distributing the cards, it’s time for the players to make a call or a raise. You’re undoubtedly familiar with these two terms if you’ve ever played poker. Making a call means staying in the game without increasing your wager. In contrast, raising involves putting additional money into the pot and either gaining or losing more than the initial stake.
Money in the pot increases gradually as the game moves forward, and the winner is decided with the highest hand. The best hand is the outcome of the best combination of cards between highest and lowest.
The Aces are on top, while 2 is t in the rank. The aim is to increase the pot if you possess the best three-card hand before the game ends. The ranks are as given below.
The cards are ranked in the following order, from highest to lowest:
The deck contains three cards of the same rank. Consider yourself lucky if you have three aces- the best combination and doomed if you have the three two’s- the worst combo.
In a row, all three from the same suit.
All three different cards from different suits must be sequenced.
All the cards are of the same type with no particular order.
The pair with the highest value wins a competition between two pairs. If both the combos are equal in rank, then the third card decides the fate.
A case in which all the cards are different, not in any order, no two same rank cards and not of the same suit. If any two members have the same rank cards, then the next highest card decides the winner.
