Teen Patti Rules: What rules should you follow when you play one of the most popular gambling games in South Asia?
Teen Patti is one of the most popular and engaging gambling games in South Asia. Did you know that this insanely popular game originated in India? Well, we all know that gambling has been a part of Indian culture, and we have seen its reference in Indian mythology as well as folklore. So it is not surprising that Teen Patti, which is also known as flash or flush, traces its origins to India.
Teen Patti is not a difficult game to master. It is usually played by 3 to six players and uses a 52-card pack without a joker. Just like every other gambling game, it starts off with players placing a bet. Then the dealers hand out the cards. There has to be a fixed amount in place before the dealer starts dealing the cards. A boot amount also needs to collect before that. After the bets are placed, and the boot amount is collected, the dealer starts dealing the cards. In the center of the table, a pot is kept, in which the cash at stake is kept.
Teen Patti Rules & Regulations
Just like every other gambling game in the world, Teen Patti also has a set of rules. In Teen Patti, the Aces are ranked the highest and 2 is ranked the lowest. This is followed in most versions of the game. In some versions, however, the rankings are reversed.
If you have three cards of the same rank, in that case, three Aces would be highest, whereas three twos would be lowest.
Pure sequence or straight flush in Rummy is referred to three consecutive cards from the same suit. From example, if you have 3, 4, and 5 of Clubs it will be called a Pure sequence or straight flush. A sequence or run refers to a scenario in which you have three consecutive cards but not of the same suit. For example, a 2 of hearts, 3 of spades, and 4 of clubs would be called a run. A Pair is referred to a scenario when you have two cards of the same rank. Between a Pair, the one has the highest value is declared the winner. In case, both the pairs have the same value, the kicker’s card will then determine the winner.
There is another term commonly used in Teen Patti. It is called the High Card. This is the hand in which the three cards are not in a sequence, not all are from the same suit and there aren’t any two cards that have the same value. If two players have a common high card, the next highest card will be used to decide the winner.
