Badeucy is a combination of Badugi poker and Deuce to Seven Triple Draw. The pot in this game is split much like high-low split between the best Badugi poker hand and the best 2-7 triple draw hand. The betting structure and overall game play is almost the same as in standard poker game using blinds. A players’ hand contains five cards where only 4 cards are used to determine the best Badugi hand and 5 cards are used to determine the triple draw hand. During each of three drawing rounds, players can trade zero to three cards from their hands for new ones from the deck.
How to Play Badeucy Poker?
First, all players put in their small blinds and big blinds, which are pretty much the "ante" bets of the round. Then each player is dealt 5 cards and the rounds of drawing and betting begin. There are three rounds of betting with a round of drawing afterwards where players can draw up to three cards. Finally there is a fourth and final round of betting before the showdown where everyone shows their cards. After the showdown, the pot is split between the person with the best Badugi hand and the best 2-7 triple draw hand. In some cases both pots can be won by the same person with the best Baduci hand.
Players can call and fold in this game just like with Texas Holdem and normal poker games. They can also raise and re-raise the bet as well and the pot can be no-limit, fixed or pot-limited. Since this is a draw poker game, players can draw up to three cards in order to make better hands. The Badugi hand is calculated by 4 cards from your 5 card combination, and the triple draw hand is calculated using all 5 cards in your hand. 토토 So Baduci poker is like playing two games at one time and it requires some thinking and strategy.
Like most split-pot games you want to focus on starting hands that give you the best possibility to scoop. First, stay away from higher Badugis when possible. Since everyone is getting five cards instead of four the odds of improving to a lower Badugi increases. For starting hands try and focus on playing hands requiring just two cards to complete a hand. Preferably you want at least three suits to start with. That way you have three draws to your Badugi and you can focus on your 2-7 hand.
