Four Poker is a new poker variation invented by Roger Snow and marketed by Shufflemaster. The game is similar to Three Card Poker but as the title suggests, four cards are used instead of three. Also, there is no dealer qualifying hand and the player can raise up to three times his ante. However, the dealer gets one extra card to form his best hand.
Two initial bets are available: The Ante and the Aces Up.
All players get five cards each and the dealer gets six cards. One of the dealer cards is placed face up, and five face down. Players making the Ante bet must decide to fold or raise. If the player folds he forfeits all bets1. If player raises, then he must raise at least the amount of the Ante and at most, three times the Ante.
The player keeps his best four cards and discards one. Following is the ranking of hands from lowest to highest: high card, pair, two pair, straight, flush, three of a kind, straight flush, four of a kind. After all decisions have been made, the dealer will turn over his cards and select the best four out of six. The player’s hand shall be compared to the dealer’s hand, the higher hand winning. If the dealer’s hand is higher, then the player shall lose the Ante and Raise. If the player’s hand is higher or equal then the Ante and Raise shall pay one to one. If the player has at least a three of a kind, then he shall also be paid a Bonus, regardless of the value of the dealer’s hand. Two different pay tables are available for the Bonus, as displayed below, and are based on the ante bet.
Another bet is available (similar to the Pairplus in Three Card Poker), based only on the player’s four card hand, called the Aces Up. Seven pay tables are available as indicated below.
