Otherwise known as Three Cards, Teen Pathi is almost identical to the game Three Card Brag. In the game an original stake is agreed upon and all players pay the stake before being dealt their cards. Each player is then dealt three cards. The person with the best hand wins. The hands are ranked in the following manner (low to high):
- High Card
- Straight Flush
- Three of Kind
There are, of course, a few rounds of betting before hand. Once players are dealt cards they get the option of looking at their cards or playing blind. If you have seen your cards you have to pay twice the stakes of those who are blind to stay in the game. If you are blind, the biggest raise you can make is twice the current stake, if you have seen your cards you can quadruple the stake. At the end of each betting round you get the opportunity to look at your cards or remaining blind.
Betting must continue until there are just two players left and all others have folded. At this point a blind player can pay the current stake to force a show, meanwhile a player that has seen his cards cannot force a show and can either continue betting or fold. If both players are seen then either player can play twice the current stake to force a show. The cards are then shown and the player with the best hand wins.
