Using value chips purchased from the dealer, each player may choose to:
The bets must be placed in the appropriate spots on the layout before the dealer announces “Rien ne va plus” (No more bets) and must respect the minimum and maximum limits indicated at the table.
The dealer distributes three cards, face down, to each player in turn, and also deals himself three cards, face down.
After having examined his cards, the player who has wagered an initial bet has the option to either make an additional bet in an amount equal to his initial bet, where required on the layout, or to forfeit his initial bet. Players are not authorized to show their cards nor to discuss them with other players. Once all the players have acted on their hand and placed their cards face down on the layout, the dealer reveals his three cards.
To open, the dealer must have a hand with a Queen or higher ranking. If need be, the dealer then reveals each player’s three cards. If two hands are of equal ranking, based on the foregoing combinations, or if two hands are made up of none of the foregoing combinations, the hand with the highest ranking card is considered the highest ranking hand, otherwise the hands are considered to be of equal ranking.
A player’s Pair Plus bet is treated separately, regardless of the ranking of the dealer’s hand.
