Teen Patti is a popular card game that originated in India and is similar to the game of poker. The game is played with a standard 52-card deck and can be played with 3 to 6 players.
To start the game, each player is dealt three cards face down, and the remaining cards are placed in the center of the table to form a draw pile. The objective of the game is to have the best three-card hand possible.
The ranking of hands in Teen Patti is as follows (from highest to lowest):
- Trail (three of a kind)
- Pure sequence (three cards of the same suit in sequential order)
- Sequence (three cards in sequential order, but not of the same suit)
- Color (three cards of the same suit)
- Pair (two cards of the same rank)
- High card (the highest card in the hand)
Once the cards are dealt, the first betting round begins. The player to the left of the dealer starts the betting by placing a bet or fold. The betting continues in a clockwise direction around the table, with each player either calling the current bet, raising the bet, or folding their hand.
After the first betting round, the players still in the game have the option to see the other players’ cards (known as a “show”) or to continue playing without seeing the other players’ cards (known as a “blind”). If a player chooses to show their cards, the other players must also show their cards, and the player with the best hand wins the pot.
If all players except one fold during the betting rounds, the remaining player wins the pot without having to show their cards.
The game continues with additional rounds of betting until there is only one player left with chips, who is declared the winner of the game.
