Certainly this isn’t one of the highly popular forms of poker but still widely played. It can be enjoyed by up to seven players. It’s played with 1 deck of cards, plus a joker. Interestingly, the Joker can only be used as an ace, or to complete a straight, flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The important thing here to bear in mind is aside from the normal ranking of hands we’ve one more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (5 aces including the joker). Astonishingly, 5 aces is greater than all other hand yes, even a royal flush. Each player is given 7 cards. The cards are arranged to create two hands; a two card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand has to be better or be equivalent to the 2 card hand.
After arranging the two hands, the cards are positioned on the table with the faces down. Once down, you can no longer switch them. The croupier will flip over their cards and make their hands. Every players hand is played against the croupier’s hands. Should the player wins one hand and loses the other, this is referred to as "push" and absolutely no money is exchanged. If dealer wins the two hands then the bettor gives up their wager and vice versa. Now if there is a tie, the croupier wins all. After the hand is competed, the very next person clock-wise gets to be the croupier and the following hand is dealt.
