Definitely this is not one of the most acclaimed styles of poker but still broadly played. It can be enjoyed by up to 7 players. It is played with one deck of cards, plus a joker. Interestingly, the Joker can be used only as an ace, or to complete a straight, a flush, straight flush, or royal flush. The important detail here to always remember is aside from the customary ranking of hands we’ve one more winning hand which is "Five Aces" (5 aces including the joker). Astonishingly, five aces beats all other hand yes, even a royal flush. Each gambler is given 7 cards. The cards are aligned to create 2 hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand has to be stronger or be equivalent to the two card hand.
After arranging the two hands, the cards are positioned on the table with the faces down. Once on the table, you can no longer change them. The dealer will turn over his cards and arrange his hands. Every players hand is played against the dealer’s hands. Should the player take 1 hand and lose the other, this is referred to as "push" and absolutely no money is lost or won. If croupier wins the two hands then the individual looses their wager the opposite is correct if the player wins both hands. Now if the hand is a draw, the dealer wins everything. Once the hand is competed, the very next person clock-wise becomes the croupier and the next hand is dealt.
