One Card Poker
One Card Poker is the fastest, simplest table game to learn and play, and is the only game where players can beat the Designated Player more than 50% of the time.
TO PLAY AGAINST THE DESIGNATED PLAYER
Make a bet in the marked area. You and the Designated Player will each receive a card face up. If your card is higher than the Designated Player’s, you win even money. If your card is lower, you lose. (Ace is high.)
GOING TO WAR
If your card matches the Designated Player’s in rank, you can either surrender half your bet or go to war. When going to war, you and the Designated Player match your original bet, putting the money on the layout. You and the Designated Player will each get another card, and if you beat the Designated Player, you win all three bets. If you lose, you lose all three bets. If you go to war and tie the Designated Player, the game continues until there’s a winner. No additional wagers are necessary.
Make a Tie Bet and if your card matches the Designated Player’s cards, you win. See layout for odds.
