FIVE CARD DRAW RULES
In this Draw game, you’ll be playing with blinds – quite similar to Texas Holdem to be honest.
- We start off with the small and big blind like most poker games. The dealer then deals five cards to each player – clockwise, one by one -, and a betting round begins with the player left of the big blind, either calling, folding, or raising.
- Once the round of betting is done, the players have an option to swap (draw) cards.
- With the new cards at hand (if any), a new betting round begins with the first player to the left of the button.
- Finally, it is time for the Showdown. The player with the best (strongest) 5-card poker hand wins.
