32-card draw is characterized by experienced players as a dynamic, impetuous game with an accurate strategy. To be successful, the participant must carefully study the rules, be ready to play with the poker masters, and be able to keep concentration and attention for a long time.
The rules of the game
The game is played by a deck of 32 cards with a face value of seven to aces. This circumstance explains the fast rhythm of poker. An important feature of 32-card draw-poker is that it eliminated four sixes. In this regard, the combination of a full-house loses its power, and in its place becomes a flush. The ability to create classic poker combinations is much lower than in a game with a deck of 52 or 54 cards.
Another limitation caused by the reduction of the deck is fewer participants at one gaming table. In the 32-card draw draw, only 5 poker players can participate. If there are not enough cards during the game, cards dropped by other players may be included in the total deck, but they will be distributed only to competitors.
A card with a value of "A" is considered in the game both the highest and the lowest. She can participate in the strongest combinations or make weak combinations, for example, straight - A-7-8-9-10.
Another feature of the 32-card draw is the advantage of suits. If the participants in the game have collected exactly the same poker combinations, the winner is the one who will have:
- first of all the suit of hearts;
- then diamonds;
- further peaks;
- and, finally, clubs.
The dealer's chip, as in other games, moves clockwise to the next active player.
The gaming process
At the first stage, each participant is dealt five cards each in private. Each player must make two mandatory bets:
- Small Blind;
- Big Blind.
After the first round, players can fold one, two, three or four cards. If during this time the participant does not reset any cards, he is automatically given the title «pat». Such a player in the future will not be able to raise the rate after the exchange of cards.
If the user decides to get rid of a few weak cards, he should mark them with a gray color using the «discard» button.
In 32 draws, there are only two rounds of betting. The first begins after the starting distribution of cards, and the second after the exchange of cards by all players. In the second round, the first bet is made by the most active player, sitting first on the left of the participant with the big blind.
The new option of the game - all players without exception, regardless of whether they put the blinds or not, have the right to raise bets.
Opens his cards first player who last raised the bet or made it in the second round of betting.
Another novelty is the option to «split» the bank. This function can be used by every player at any time. Once a player makes such a decision, all users receive an appropriate notification and can accept it or refuse to divide the bank.
The gaming strategy
The strategy of the game must be built from the very beginning. For the successful outcome of each round, the user needs to remember the cards that left the game at each stage. Excluding the possibility of compilation of strong hands, the participant can coordinate his decisions, go all-in or, on the contrary, pass.
In any case, the best combination of five cards is winning. Since in the 32 draw-poker game not only combinations but also card suits are taken into account, there can be no automatic partition of the pot between players with equal combinations.
