One of the earliest poker games is said to have been played in New Orleans in 1829. Since then, poker has increased hugely in popularity. Not only is poker one of the most competitive games, it’s also got a lot to do with your ability to bluff and make good decisions. All of these elements combined are what landed The World Series of Poker on television.
The biggest difference between Triple Edge Poker and regular old Hold’em is the fact that you’re only given 3 cards in this game. This makes for much smaller but more volatile hands.
If you’ve played poker before, you should have no problem getting the hang of Triple Edge Poker. You start the game off by choosing your chip denomination and the speed of the game in the bottom-right corner. Your chip size can be 1, 5, 25, 100, or 500, and the game speed can be set at 1, 2 or 3.
After you’ve picked your chip size, you have to pick one of the three spaces at the table to play at. To play a hand, put your desired number of chips down on the empty card spot that says “ante.” If you want to bet a more precise amount, each click will add another chip to the bet for that hand. You can bet all three hands if you want, although you may not win as big since you’re placing three bets per turn.
After you place chips on an ante, you can also place them on the respective P+ spot. This gives you access to a higher, more rewarding paytable where a straight flush pays 40 to 1.
Once your bet is where you want it and you’re ready to go, click deal. Each player at the table will get three cards (or you will get three cards for each hand you bet on). Your job at this point is to make a quick assessment of the hand you’ve got and decide what to do. If you think your hand is pretty strong and you have a good shot at winning, you can ride, or double down on your bet before the dealer reveals his hand. If you think the dealer probably has something better than you, you can fold instead of doubling down. This keeps your original bet and allows you to lose a minimal amount of money, although folding will always result in a loss.
The important part of Triple Edge Poker is knowing how to recognize hands and making good decisions. Some hands even provide bonus payouts.
