    Exclamation Three Card Poker, possibly the most dangerous casino game of all.

    Hey all,

    wanted to warn all about Three Card Poker, (the gold version microgaming one is extremely fast), the most dangerous game of all casino table games.

    in the most recent session of 38 hands. the results went like this.
    (Optimal strategy in ante and play is to raise if you have a queen/6/4)

    lost 4 of 6 ace high's, lost 2 of 4 king high's, lost 6 of 7 queen high's
    won 3 of 3 pairs, won 2 of 2 flushes (dealer dnq one of them), and folded crap 16 times (dealer DNQ in only 3 of them anyway!)

    this game should be absolutely avoided like the plague, its a bankroll destroyer!

    btw the probability of getting Straight flush = 0.22% !
    the probability of getting Three of a kind = 0.24% !

    Basically what we call '3-card Brag' or 'Bastard Brag' and yes, I'm surprised there is an online version of such a dull game.

    Did you really just slam a game based on less that 40 hands?

    I think I speak for many of us here when I suggest you go add a few 0's to that sample size before we pass judgement.

    FWIW
    , the payout rate of Micorgamings three card poker gold is 98.24%... so with most slots coming in at 94%-98% it's definitely a stretch to call it the 'most dangerous game'
    imo

    It's actually quite a good game. I play this when I visit land-based casinos because you can win 33-1, 34-1 on Pair Plus side-bets and extras on Prime (poor odds though). But in land-based it is a slower and more social game. Online it is fast and duller and on the few occasions I have tried it I have lost fast. So I don't ever play it online now.

    But now it's creeping into live deater casinos it will be a lot better.

    It's quite a fun table game

    . The big hands do hit. Old now but a classic.

    I can see both points of view here. This is a game I have played quite a bit off & on over the years, and YES it can be a total b*st*rd bank-roll eater - especially the way I like to play it: At least 3 hands at once and a minimum ante of 5 credits on each hand (3 ante and 2
    PP
    ).
    But like all games, a good run can make a nice profit very quickly.

    On this occasion I was playing 5-hands and got BOTH the top pay combinations in one deal!

    Fold everything except 55 or better don't rely on big slick/big chick(AK and AQ) and certainly less than that also no good. Rookie error to rely on high card Honestly 55 or better and your success rate should improve if you wanna practice 3 card poker play it for fun for a good couple hours on 3dice or mg software. Personally think 3dice has the best table card games I've played The limits cater for all bankrolls too.
    Slots are like Cleveland Browns Civil rights movement board game "ya don't win, you just do a little better each time"

    Thumbs up

    dave1888 what do you mean play only 55? only bet if you get a pair of 5 or higher? It does not sound right to me.. probability says that until you get a pair (any pair) you will have so many hands that can win (with or without the dealer qualifying), so not sure what you mean.

    I love three card poker myself and have my own 3 card poker strategy to win, which is always play Q-6-4 or higher and randomly bet on the side-bets, its not a mathematical strategy, but sometimes it helps me win more.

    I've been gathering information from many sites, who talk about how to win at three card poker (my favorites are www.justthreecardpoker.com & www.wizardofodds.com) but of course if you play long enough it is very likley that you leave empty handed, but have great thrill on the way

    He's wrong - Optimal strategy with for 3CP is to play any hand Q64 or better and fold anything weaker. The strategy suggested is clearly based on the player's own experience. You are going to have a far higher success rate playing only a pair of 5s or higher, but the truth is you'll lose more folding all the extra hands than you will placing the play bet on them over the long term.
