# Crazy 4 Poker

This poker game is quite similar to three- card poker, only it is based on four cards.

## The rules of crazy 4 poker

• This game has three initial bets that are referred to as the Ante, the Super Bonus and the Queens up. When placing bets, a player is allowed to place equal bets on the Super Bonus and the Ante while bets places on the Queens Up can be any amount.
• All the players and the dealer are given five cards each.
• When a player folds he/she forfeits all bets and players making the Super Bonus and Ante bets must decide to fold or raise.
• If a player decides to raise, he/she has to raise by the amount set in the Ante bet. If they have a pair of aces or a better combination than that, they are allowed to raise up to three times the amount set in the Ante bet. If they have anything less than a pair of aces, the player is expected to raise an amount corresponding to the Ante bet.
• Once the bets are set the players are allowed to keep the four best cards in their set of five and discard the remaining card.
• Once this is done, it’s time for the dealer to do the same. He/she will turn the cards and select the four best cards.
• The players and the dealer then compare the cards they have. The highest hand among all the players at the table wins the game.
