Introduction to Chinese Poker

by on Jul.29, 2011, under Club Life

If you spend time here at Encore, quite often you’ll see a small group of players off on their own playing different games.  One of the games you’ll often see me involved in later at night is Chinese Poker.  Chinese Poker is a great short-handed game, it’s fun to play regardless of whether you have 2, 3, or 4 players.


The basic concept of Chinese is fairly straightforward.  You are dealt thirteen cards.  From these cards you must make three poker hands; two five card hands and one three card hand.  You then arrange these hands in order of strength, your strongest five card hand on the bottom, your medium five card hand in the middle, and your weakest hand is the three card hand up top.  To put it another way, the bottom hand must be able to beat the middle hand, and the middle hand must be able to beat the top.


After all hands are set, players play against each other.  The top hand (3-card) is compared against the opponents top hands, the middle hands are compared against middle, and bottom versus bottom.  The idea is to win 2 out of 3 against your opponent (or 3 of 3, of course) and win points.


It might sound complicated, but it’s actually fairly straightforward once you play a couple of hands.  This is a great game for passing the time, and I feel it also is good exercise for poker thinking in general.  If you see any of us hanging around the club playing, don’t be shy about asking what we are doing or sitting down and taking a hand.  I’m always happy to teach new people the game, and we’re hoping to start offering some sort of ladder or ranking system for our Chinese players in upcoming months.
