Card Ratings Pinatubo Hold’em
Although the scores in Pinatubo Hold’em’s charts follow the usual Hi-Poker card-reading scheme, the value of the hands is a bit different from that of other hi-poker variants such as Texas Hold’em, Seven, due to the smaller deck of cards Card Stud or Five Card Draw. A flush beats a full house.

Pick a Partner has a very distinct component: In each game round, two players each come together to form a team. Therefore, the game must always be played with an even number of participants. As basic bets you can choose antes or blinds.

Mate choice: Each player receives 5 face-down cards that only he can see at first. Afterwards each player reveals one of his cards. The player with the highest face-up card now looks for one of the other players as a partner. Then the next one of the still free players, who shows them the highest card, chooses a partner, etc.

Betting round 1: The respective partners of a team combine their still hidden cards, so 8 (four each per player), and select from it 3 cards, with which they want to continue playing. The other 5 cards are discarded. After that, each team should have two open and three face down cards in front of them. This is followed by the first betting round.

Betting round 2: Each team reveals another card and there is a betting round.

Betting round 3: Again, the teams reveal a card and it starts the third betting round.

Betting Round 4: At the end, the teams reveal their last card, followed by the fourth and last betting round.

Of the remaining teams wins the best hand. The two players of the team then share the pot and it starts the next round, in which new teams have to come together again.

No River Holdem rules

Player: 2 – 10
Betting rounds: 3

Poker Rules No River Hold’em Poker
For those of you who already know Texas Hold’em rules, the rules change in No River Hold’em is very easy to understand.

Each player receives three instead of two cards at the beginning. As always, there are three flop cards and one turn card, but there is no river card.

Since No River Hold’em, like Texas Hold’em, is almost always played with blinds as the basic bet, the two players to the left of the current dealer must pay the small blind and the big blind at the beginning of each round.

Each round is divided into 3 betting rounds in No River Hold’em:
Preflop: All players receive 3 face down cards, their holecards. This is followed by the first betting round. It is opened by the one who sits to the left of the player who paid the big blind.

Flop: Three cards are dealt face up, the so-called flop. Everyone can add the cards to his hand. Afterwards, the players put back on their cards. This time, the player starts to the left of the dealer.

Turn: A fourth card is dealt face up on the table, the turn. He too is a community card, so can be used by all players for their hand. Then the remaining players put back.

This is followed by the so-called showdown. Any active player tries to make the best possible five-card hand from any of his three cards and the four community cards. The player with the highest hand wins the pot.

The No River Hold’em card rankings follow Hi-Poker’s standard card value scheme, as it is also used in Texas Hold’em, Seven Card Stud or Five Card Draw. The value or rank of a leaf is the higher, the rarer it is.
